New Star Trek Site: Experience The Enterprise May 5, 2009

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Marketing/Promotion,Star Trek (2009 film) , trackback

Paramount has added a new website to their online marketing mix, an ‘augmented reality’ application called Experience The Enterprise. By printing off an image or downloading it to your iPhone you can create an interactive 3D virtual reality tour of the new USS Enterprise, check out a demo video below.

 

Experience The Enterprise
Using your webcam experience-the-enterprise.com gives you the opportunity to take an extensive five minute tour of the Enterprise, including testing the ship’s weapons systems, impulse engines and warp drive. Here is a demo. 

‘Experience The Enterprise’ is built using augmented reality (AR) technology, which combines real world and computer-generated data to bring a 3D interactive version of the Starship Enterprise to life, on your desktop or in the palm of your hand.

Anybody with a webcam can take a tour of the Enterprise using the kind of futuristic technology that sits at the heart of perhaps the most popular science-fiction franchise of all time. Once underway, you are given a ‘cadet holo-simulation’ by Starfleet, the Academy in which new recruits Kirk, Spock and McCoy are enrolled at the start of the new film.

This is the first time AR has been used to bring a major film release to life in this way. The application itself was constructed using the original 3D model of the Enterprise appearing in the film, as well as featuring an array of special effects direct from the production. It was developed for PPI by creative marketing agency Picture Production Company (PPC), working in conjunction with augmented reality specialists Total Immersion.

Here are a couple of images of the site in action sent over by Paramount:

It also works if you download an image to your iPhone. Here is a shot of my friend Sam playing with the site using the iPhone:

But it seems a printout would be better as the size of the iPhone makes it somewhat awkward to navigate and see the 3D elements.

Primero!!

3. John Ozdundar - May 5, 2009

Interesting

4. captblsisko - May 5, 2009

23rd? (No one commented yet when I loaded this page, but we’ll see how many are there when I finally comment)

Can’t do it at work with Firefox. Need to go home and try this with IEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE and my webcam.

(Already have my IMAX tix, 12:35pm Sat 5-9-2009)

5. Lousy Canadian - May 5, 2009

Wow! :O

6. Lt. Bailey - May 5, 2009

Not bad at all, I only wish they could do this for all the other ST eras or series ships.

7. Prologic9 - May 5, 2009

Why would I go to all that trouble? My mouse cursor would have been just fine thankyou.

8. Bren - May 5, 2009

That is friggin’ impressive!

I wants a friggin’ internet connection of note!

9. The Gorn Identity - May 5, 2009

Is that what the phaser effect looks like in the new movie? If so, then, dang…that’s awesome!

10. dane - May 5, 2009

cool

11. wicketsc - May 5, 2009

Awesome. Works great!

12. lucas - May 5, 2009

amazing piece of technology!

13. The Governator - May 5, 2009

Off topic, but I just saw the new Burger King/Trek commercial.

Shows some burger klingons beaming into a guy’s living room, freezing his dog, taking his special Star Trek drinking glasses, and beaming out with his girlfriend.

Kind of weird if you ask me.

14. The Man from Del Monte - May 5, 2009

Can’t seem to get it to work with Mac Firefox for some reason…

15. Daniel Broadway - May 5, 2009

Why can’t we just use our damn mouse? This is cool, but not everyone has a webcam.

I want something more like the 3D Kelvin on boldlygo.intel.com

This sucks.

16. The Governator - May 5, 2009

Cool program!!!

Too bad I don’t have a webcam :(

17. I am not Herbert - May 5, 2009

THAT IS F**KIN” COOL!!! =D

18. Josro89 - May 5, 2009

Some of the facts about the Enterprise are incorrect. It is definitely not 2500 feet in length nor is it 625 feet in height. Cool program though.

19. Aqua - May 5, 2009

#18, maybe they took the stats from the 5th movie? LOL

20. Kirk's Girdle - May 5, 2009

What the hell?

21. Clay "Why oh why can't there be red nacelle caps" Farrow - May 5, 2009

@2: Sorry, Doc…¡segundo!

22. PJ - May 5, 2009

Very, very cool tech!

On a side note (not sure if Anthony mentioned it in an update) Sci-Fi is running a Trek marathon on Thursday. …I guess it’s either supposed to get you amped up for the new movie or make you wish these were the glory days of old, who knows. Either way, it’s more Trek and it’ll give me something to watch before I see the 7pm showing that night.

23. Unbel1ever - May 5, 2009

I’m always pro nice gadgets, but I also would have liked a quick tour just by mouse. I don’t have a webcam here and probably many other people will have neither. Pity.

24. Capt. of the USS Anduril - May 5, 2009

#19 It may be that big in the film…

25. Rick Sternbach - May 5, 2009

#18 – With all the crazy things I heard about the redesign, it just may be that big.

26. Josro89 - May 5, 2009

#24 Judging from the size of the shuttlebay seen in the movie clip released the engineering hull actually looks like it may be a bit smaller than the original series, so it’s dimensions can’t be that much bigger than the original Enterprise.

27. Edward Duddy - May 5, 2009

http://www.ppiwidget.com/campaigns/startrek_AR/widget/ww/startrek_AR_trigger_iphone.jpg

I just wanted to link here because I couldn’t find a direct link to the image on my Ipod touch because the browser wouldn’t load that main site.

28. Randy H. - May 5, 2009

If the ship really is 2500 feet in length, that would make it as long or longer than the Enterprise-D. The classic Enterprise is about 1000 feet (roughly the same as an aircraft carrier), and Roddenberry wanted the Enterprise-D to be twice as long. That seems just odd to increase the ship size so significantly, so let’s hope the information is plain wrong. (Though it would explain why the nacelles are so honking big!)

Do Kurtzman and/or Orci ever wander around in here anymore? Could they clear this up, perhaps?

29. TK [Shuda] - May 5, 2009

This program works just as seen in the video above. You DO NOT have to have a color printer for this to work. Unlike similar programs the trigger is not color, but is intead shape alone. It will sense the shape on the greyscale image and show images, video, and most amazingly of all…a 3D model of the Enterprise!

Turn the paper around slowly as quick movements confuse it. Also, some angles will make the program reset. If you want to reset the view on purpose than just shake the paper and it will reset.

I am quite impressed, actually. This works like a charm! ^_^ I love it! Great for kiddies and adults to play with!

The only con to this is that you need to have a webcam, of course, and that the load-times are rather long. On high-speed wireless it took me 20 minutes to load this up, but boy, was it worth it! Really, all modem users can do is cross your fingers and wait. Seeing as information is stored on the computer, the first load time will be the longest. After that it will be A LOT less as the needed info is already temporarily stored.

As far as cameras go, the better quality camera, the better the program will work as it needs to be able to ‘see’ good to sense the paper. Built-in cameras seem to work better for some reason.

P.S. The active X control is clean, I scanned it. I see no need to worry about the download.

30. Martin Anderson - May 5, 2009

I wonder if it is possible to extract the model, images, sound, video so they can be viewed without messing around with paper etc…

31. jason - May 5, 2009

this thing crashed my browser, and my iphone kept auto-rotating the image and turning off the simulation…then you have to start all over.

damn you, technology!

32. Me - May 5, 2009

Rick Sternbach is posting here? That’s the really cool thing on this page. Hi, Rick!

I have your signature (next to Andy P’s) on a ‘Ready Room’ lithograph hanging in my office. It’s my most prized possession!

33. Some Dude on the Internet - May 5, 2009

Hmm, I can get the ship, but when I click on level 1, nothing happens. None of the other numbers are activated.

34. section9 - May 5, 2009

Does this work with IPhoto?

I suspect not, as I don’t think that I Photo functions as a proper WebCam.

35. John Sullivan - May 5, 2009

#28 – the series U.S.S. Enterprise was 11 (cramped) decks thick in the 417-foot wide Saucer, with a Secondary hull about 340 feet long, and engines that were 512 feet long. The total length of the series U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 is 947 feet long.

I for one always thought they should have made the ship much bigger, if only because the turbolift decks going by can go on for nearly as many decks on TV as what was featured somewhere in Star Trek 5 – 78 decks.

Star Trek’s shape was originally designed – per Matt Jefferies, to be about 200 feet long, and that would have been fine for Pike’s crew of whatever it was in “The Cage” – if everyone but Pike slept in a common large berthing space the way they do on today’s submarines, surface ships, or international space stations. The larger size was chosen when it was decided the crew would house 430 people, and junior officers would have to be bunked up. But even then, we find that most of the ship contains crew quarters.

I do hope that something in the script explains HOW the Enterprise goes from “our” 947-foot long starship and the much larger (and much more sensible) size of the “alternate new reality” version of the Enterprise. The big question would be simply this … does the “change” in time occur before “our” April’s Enterprise is built, or after J.J.’s “Pike’s Enterprise” is built?

36. Unbel1ever - May 5, 2009

If the scale person to ship is correct, I really don’t care how big she is.

37. John Sullivan - May 5, 2009

#32 – yes that is THE Rick Sternbach, who designed the USS Voyager and designed it to work just fine. I always tested out Starship designs by dropping the models from 6 feet altitude, and Voyager was the only one that didn’t splinter like warping a ship right into an Asteroid.

Great guy.

38. Some Dude on the Internet - May 5, 2009

Actually, just got it – wait for all of the level text to finish displaying. Kinda cool.

39. John Sullivan - May 5, 2009

… actually I could care less about the ship. I already hate it. I long for the days of Remixed Cage where I could see the glue and tape in detail in the sets, and a model that stands in the Smithsonian as THE Star Trek Enterprise.

So, I guess my question is … anyone know when we can expect Alan Dean Foster’s novel on the shelves? Might just read it, imagine I’m watching the real ship, and skip the film.

40. JWWright - May 5, 2009

The Enterprise ep’s on Scifi tonight with Brent Spiner were better than any DS9 or Voyager episodes I’ve seen, combined.

What a tragedy the newbie fans couldnt keep up and the show was canceled.

Maybe they’ll be happier with a 2500 foot constitution class that shoots rocket exhaust from its warp nacelles…

41. AdmNaismith - May 5, 2009

Webcams? Extra downloads? WTF? Aw, hell no.

42. Jonny Boy - May 5, 2009

Cool beans, but it keeps crashing on my Mac, which is the only computer I have with a webcam. I can’t get past the bridge officer intros.

Check out the preview for Star Trek: DAC. It has new shots from the movie (I think) and the ship does look a bit bigger than the original design.

43. MJ - May 5, 2009

just decided I am buying a webcam….gotta have this!!!!!!

44. The Original Spock's Brain - May 5, 2009

35. John Sullivan – “I do hope that something in the script explains HOW the Enterprise goes from “our” 947-foot long starship and the much larger (and much more sensible) size of the “alternate new reality” version of the Enterprise. The big question would be simply this … does the “change” in time occur before “our” April’s Enterprise is built, or after J.J.’s “Pike’s Enterprise” is built?”

The Narada meets the USS Kelvin in 2233.04. This E is commissioned in 2245 according to the Nokia Star Trek site (same year April assumed command in the “Prime” timeline)
http://www.joinstarfleetacademy.com/#/starfleet-hangar

But why do they have to explain everything? TOS didn’t. I find most exposition annoying in movies, and even more so in poorly written Trek.

It often slows down the story.

45. Jorg Sacul - May 5, 2009

Just saw it again tonight at another sneak peek… I guess if it is 2500 feet long, that explains all the running they do all over the ship.

It’s really cool, though when the saucer separates. Much better than TNG.

46. Jorg Sacul - May 5, 2009

j/k about the saucer sep thing. They didn’t do that, it would have killed the tribbles. ;-)

47. JT - May 5, 2009

43 it is not worth it! Lets face it this movie will be action packed and exciting, how ever everything is changing and they are throwing everything that came before out! The Edselprise is just ridiculous in every aspect! I mean come on engineering shot on location in some refinery. The hanger bay shot in a airship hanger. Lets not even talk about that bridge anymore! The art direction just sucks in this film! I will see it probably twice, and I hope i can enjoy it. If Gene Roddenberry had a grave he would be rolling over in it! Thank God he and his wife will be up in space sometime in the next year or so. Star treks on screen appearance has always been its signature, but the production design on this project is just way off base! What were they thinking! Surely the story will be good! Some Trek fans I have found out over the years will except anything and just love it. I have another opinionand I am sticking to it. Oh but wait this is Trek for everyone ,I hope so!

48. JT - May 5, 2009

Oh BTW That shit was not designed by Walter Matt Jefferies!

49. JC - May 5, 2009

Interesting idea, but the execution is just awkward. Let’s see: hold an iPhone image (or color printout) in front of your web cam and, thus, directly in front of the browser window you’re trying to view. Any movement starts the simulation over again. Quite annoying, actually. I got so frustrated with it after 5 minutes I had to stop.

50. JonWes - May 5, 2009

You don’t hold it right up to it (in fact it tells you NOT too) and it will still read the image as long as it can see it. I had the lights down and it would turn off as I turned it and the image got too dark. I turned on the lights and it was fine. It’s actually quite fun at the end when you get to fire phasers and photons and engage warp speed at will.

51. Jesse - May 5, 2009

The Enterprise has pulse phasers and quantum torpedoes?

52. DTS - May 5, 2009

same as #31. Computer froze a couple times. Couldn’t even force quit. How do you end the program? Once you finish the ‘course’ it just stays there. iPhone rotating was irritating too. Would work better with paper.

53. Cobalt 1365 - May 5, 2009

Looks super cool, gonna try it on my laptop w/ webcam!

54. Scale 'er up!! - May 5, 2009

I’m glad they scaled it up. It works much better at that length, and when they came up with the completely arbitrary length of 1000′ in the first place, I don’t think they really thought it through that much anyway:

“Hey how big is the spaceship supposed to be?”

“I dunno. Big. Like, aircraft carrier big. 1000 feet long”

“Yeah, a THOUSAND feet. That’s big I guess. That’ll work. It’s 1000′ long.”

If you look at the ship, and pay attention to how the interior space would play out with the 1000′ length, it just doesn’t work as well. The new scale is cooler, & makes more sense. They should’ve said it was that big from day 1.

55. The Original Spock's Brain - May 5, 2009

On Friday, May 8, 2009, a group of us (fans and newbies) is going to see the it at the Edwards Marq*e IMAX, 7620 Katy Freeway, HOUSTON, TX (the 9:55 p.m. show on IMAX). You’re welcome to joins us.

I’ll have “Trekmovie: Houston Chapter” sign or something to help you find our group. You can contact me through my website.

56. Ben T - May 5, 2009

I’m trying this at the moment, although it also crashes my browser occasionally.

Interesting to see that the Enterprise was constructed in San Fransisco according to this…isn’t it implied in the movie to be constructed in iowa?

57. Cobalt 1365 - May 5, 2009

Just ran it in internet explorer 8 with a laptop webcam and it works great! I love how you move the picture closer to your camera and more detail shows up on the E as it gets closer.
One or two minor gripes, looking at the bottom of the Enterprise is really difficult, tipping the picture up to look at the underside resets the image.
Other than that, no complaints, an awesome program!

58. Selor - May 5, 2009

Finally the damn ship has a suitable size! I never liked it that the Enterprise had to be that small as anyone assumed it was, it just doesn’t fit with 430 Crewmen and the whole damn Interior! Anything would have been to cramped and we would have seen 20-30 Crewman on 10m² sleeping!

59. Selor - May 5, 2009

And nearly forgot, just remember how big the Shuttle Bay was in TMP… Now we have a similar size and I am SO glad with enough room for a future Refit (and inflating it to the TMP Shuttlebay size ;) )

60. Karl - May 5, 2009

So not fair! It says I need some ActiveX thing for it, I don’t have ActiveX!

61. Steven - May 6, 2009

size discussion: The clip states “sickbay on G-Deck” which is deck 8 counting down from deck 1, Bridge, and is shown in the saucer rim. It was also on Deck 8 in the refit. So there are obviously approximately the same number of decks.

62. Dark_Lord_Prime - May 6, 2009

WTF.. I’ve tried in Firefox and IE, and when I click the “download and print” button, it opens an Acrobat Reader tab with one of the movie posters. o_O

63. thorsten - May 6, 2009

It’s funny and works with the iPhone and the iSight in the MacBook Pro…
the plugin works fine in Safari 5528.16

64. Selor - May 6, 2009

@62 Yeah right, you have to print the movie poster, that is the Trigger!
you have to hold up this movieposter just as the guy in the video… to enter the Cam Area you have to click down left “Beginn Load Sequence”

65. Chris Fawkes - May 6, 2009

Are they marketing spock and kirk costumes for kids?

Clearly light sabers were always going to appeal to little boys who would grow into adult fans. Lets hope they can create something that allows children to pretend they are these characters.

66. Toni Galvez - May 6, 2009

hey, it works with my psp to.
You can put the photo on the images drawer and its the same that iPhone.

69. John Sullivan - May 6, 2009

#44 … I read the posting by the owner of the site who says we should, in effect get on our knees and praise God that the porportions seem as close are they are, and that the ship isn’t just a big blob of technobabble.” – to paraphrase him.

I don’t know if Paramount’s new Star Trek producer ever went to K-Mart to buy the huge box that filled more shelf-space than anything else on the shelves, the AMT U.S.S. Enterprise. I don’t know if he ever bought the oversized Romulan cruiser, model of Spock facing down a 3-headed serpent with a phaser and communicator, Galileo 7, or Klingon Battlecruiser. Only the last one mentioned was really true to the series models (or actor), and the others were cast from originals made from drawings and not the original models. Despite all of their flaws, each of these models were a lot closer to the models displayed in 1992 in the Smithsonian than this ship is. So the question is, will Paramount now issue a refund to the fans who over the years have poured BILLIONS of dollars into the old version of the franchise? Why couldn’t these guys just have taken these actors and cast the story in the 27th Century? Would it be any less Star Trek? Do they really have to do this to our ship? And if they do, at what point will Paramount quietly ask the National Air and Space Museum to pull the U.S.S. Enterprise away from the Apollo 11 capsule, John Glenn’s Mercury 7 capsule, and other historic spacecraft because the 1960’s design “isn’t relevant anymore?”

Personally, my own take on the larger size of the ship is more engine power is required to generate those blurring streaks that thankfully this poor design can hide behind.

70. bubba2009 - May 6, 2009

Somebody call the WAAAAAAAmbulance!

“The Enterprise isn’t the same size anymore! They made it bigger! How could they do something like that?!? Don’t they realize there isn’t any possible way for them to tell a good story unless everything is EXACTLY how I expect it to be?!? It must conform exactly to my ST Encyclopedia and the dozen or so models I have hanging over my bed!!!”

71. bubba2009 - May 6, 2009

I have to be honest here for a second…

I’m a fan of STAR TREK and have been since I was a kid. I love the original series as much as anyone and I have nothing but respect for the work they put into the series and the movie. Love the original actors! Love the original designs! I fully appreciate everything they did!

However, I also appreciate the fact that things can’t stay the same. I love the changes they’re making. ST has needed a good strip-down and overhaul for quite some time and I’m ready to see what comes! The only reason this movie will fail is if the story bites… not because of the technical or design changes.

I have to point out that there seems to be a sense of ST Fundamentalism that runs through a portion of the fan base. “It must conform to our holy books. We believe in the literal interpretation and any other reading is heresy!” Just an observation…

72. frederick estrella - May 6, 2009

uss enterpise is straight out from th tmp, not from the t.v. series, what happen to robert april, from the tas, he was captain and then chris pike and after james kirk. i know that the uss enterpise was bult on the ground, but was build orbiting earth piece by peice from san franisco, and the ship carry 205 crew, after pike was in command and the ship refit to 438 crew member, i feel this is wrong and gene will be very upset knowing that this new trek movies isnt his idea. all the crew from the tos, didnt met in star fleet headquater. thats not how is shown on the tos, and what happen to janic rand, she and kirk was to be together, not uhura..

73. JJ_roddenberry - May 6, 2009

It’s lame that they make you print out the poster to do it. You should be able to use your own jpg. I would’ve used a holodeck background, haha.

Had fun playing with this earlier, it’s pretty fun but ultimately self defeating. It’d make more sense to have the option to just free wheel it around the ship, as opposed to relying on a bit of paper which – depending on your location – can be very limiting.

74. Mr. Happy - May 6, 2009

Look, who cares how big the Enterprise is??? Why are there so many people running around a-la Chicken Little? “The series is ruined, the series is RUINED!!!!”

Can’t you just be happy that we finally have a new movie? And that the franchise is out of the hands of people who’s only goal (…seemingly) was to drive it into the ground (…I won’t mention names here)?

As long as we have a quality film with a good story and some half-way decent FX, the techobabble is windowdressing. All the reviews so far have been terrific, the promo stuff looks totally awsome, and for the first time lots of people (besides Trekkies) are actually EXCITED to see a Star Trek movie? When was that last time THAT happened?

If they want to make the Enterprise the size of Nebraska, I say let ‘em! So what if April does or does not appear as a commander of the Enterprise in this new “wacky/crazy” timeline? The only time he ever existed was in a first draft of the pilot BACK BEFORE KENNEDY WAS SHOT. Does it really matter? And who cares if Spock and Uhura have a little thing going? As long as the have space-rubbers, baby oil, and “Kenny G For Lovers”, I say let the pointed-ears get a little nookie from the beautiful Sista’!

In conclusion:
Lighten the F*#% up, eat your popcorn, and enjoy the godamn movie!

In conclusion

75. TK [Shuda] - May 6, 2009

To #62, that’s supposed to happen. Had you read my earlier post [#29] which explains everything you need to know about the trigger to get it to work…than you and lots other people wouldnt be so confused xD

76. Hentziphan - May 6, 2009

To # 75.. Hey, sis! ^o^ You left out the part where it works best on IE and Seamonkey browsers. It doesn’t work at all on some versions of Internet Explorer and Firefox, for some reason. Firefox just doesn’t work with it at all it seems. I’ve had no luck.

77. Mark - May 6, 2009

NEAAAAT!

that looks so cool, it’s almost like dare I say it? a hologram.

78. Jon Deane - May 6, 2009

Where is the version for those of us that don’t have an iPhone or a webcam? Are we second class citizens? :(

79. The Original Spock's Brain - May 6, 2009

#69. John Sullivan

Obviously the original Enterprise is relevant because it is the model for the new E. The Smithsonian collects all matter of Americana, including Archie Bunker’s chair.

You do realize that the other spacecraft you mentioned are real and the E is fantasy?Isn’t the E by the the Smithsonian gift shop?

80. John Sullivan - May 6, 2009

#79 – I don’t know where it is now, because they have enclosed it behind bulletproof plexiglass. The model has been there since the 1970’s but was pulled out and restored by Ed Mireki who had it in his New Jersey garage under lock and key. During this time, Mireki put all of the lines on the ship, recreated the spinning hemispheres in front of the engines, and did pretty well with everything but for his decision to fabricate a new “Navigational Deflector” that wasn’t anything close to the earlier damaged one. In 1992 I went there and took TONS of pictures of the Enterprise which was in open air only a few feet away from the movie model, which was actually smaller and much greater in detail. No one could see the sense behind any of the Mireki changes but in that the Remastered DVD’s the changes were used as a template to the digital ship, less the weathering. Personally, I thought that the starship Defiant that appeared in Enterprise’s “In a Mirror, Darkly” had a lot cooler look (all GCI) as well as Greg Jein’s Enterprise recreated for a DS9 episode – name I can’t remember. I don’t know where the Enterprise is now within the building that is only a few hundred feet from the Capitol and between the Capitol and the White House, but I would find it hard to believe that Archie Bunker’s chair is in the National Air & Space Museum, but I’m positive that as a tribute of the original show’s influence on air and space, the Enterprise model – despite all of its flaws in restoration – still is. The movie model, the original surviving phasers, the surviving Bridge helm station, the surviving Nimoy ears, the surviving uniforms and costumes, and the surviving Klingon series and movie models (TOS only) were there in 1992, but only the Enterprise is still there. It’s not like “Star Trek – the Experience,” because these displays contain (among other things) the Wright Brothers’ plane, Lindburg’s Spirit of St. Louis, the Voyager aircraft that sailed around the world, an X-15, an X-1, the M-2/F3 spaceplane that crashed as the opening segment of The Six Million Dollar Man, and all of the aforementioned historic actual spacecraft. To have an Enterprise TV model there isn’t small stuff, because Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars, Buck Rogers, Lost in Space and all the rest couldn’t make the grade to get into such an esteemed place in national history. So again, what are they going to do at Paramount? Tell the Air & Space Museum that they are now embarrassed by the design and that they should now hang the CGI DVD’s in its place?

81. CommanderDJ - May 6, 2009

The DS9 episode was ‘Trials & Tribbleations’, and the CGI ship looked as good as the one in the current remastered episodes. If it was good enough for DS9 and ENTERPRISE (as the DEFIANT), They could have dolled it up a bit (aztec-ing and the like) for the movie. The reason they ‘refit’ the Enterprise for the movies, was because the original model wasnt detailed enough – and I liked the original engines – the ‘refit’ engines just never did it for me. I am glad the new Enterprise at least has the classic round engines.

I believe the phrase you are looking for is “Experience the ALTERNATE Enterprise”.

The original Enterprise model is in the gift shop of the Air and Space Museum (lower level).

In my opioion the thing about the Star trek tv,shows was the history of the starship enterprise and crews during the years ,the starstations, putting another cast in from 1960’s and replacing them [minus one] with a new cast in this movie defeets the whole idea of star trek. and EXCEPT FOR IT EVENTULLY COMING ON TV .I WILL NOT PAY TO SEE IT IN A MOVIE THEATHER!

2500 feet long, 1100 crewmembers… Yep. Nero only made Starfleet better.

Finally got around to rebooting the iMac in to Windows and trying this. Damn cool! Can’t wait to show it off to the guys I saw the film with, who are not likely to even know about this.

“Congratulations Cadet, the Ship is yours…”

Pretty much what Starfleet said to Kirk in this latest film >.>

Using an Imac I’ve been totally unable to get this to work at all. I installed the plugin. On Safari. The HTML/Flash part so of the page loads but the ‘viewer’ part (where all the goodness happens) remains black and inert. All of the flash/html/css parts work correctly, but the main screen remains black. Firefox brings up an ‘initialising’ box that doesn’t go away (and if you refresh crashes FF) and Opera has the same outcome as Safari.

This *is* supposed to be able to work for the mac, but just doesn’t seem to…

anyone else had similar problems and found remedies? Thanks.
