First Official Picture Of The USS Enterprise

AOL/Moviephone has got the exclusive on the first glimps of the USS Enterprise from the new Star Trek.

Here she is…being built. Presumably an image from the teaser.

At first glance it appears pretty faithful to the TOS Enterprise. The nacelles seem a bit over sized and the skin is more like the movie era Enterprise, but I think everyone’s childhood is safe from being ravaged.

an even higher res version is available at AOL/Moviephone

I’ve got a good feeling about this!

This guy

Let me be the FIRST to say…she’s alive

This guy

Please people no bitching


Why hello there! :-)

Tom Riker

It looks good.

roberto orci

2 LOL.



wow…looks like it will be faithful to the original. Is it me or do the Nacelles look an awful lot like Gabriel Koerner’s concept?

Capt Abe

Wow this looks very cool!!!!!!!!



…the LETTERING is different, folks. Get ready for the sh*tstorm.


Pants = soiled. Awesome! This is bigger than Duke Nukem Forever’s impending release :D

cosmo kid

That looks great!
Yee haw!

JB Gestl

Nice… Maybe I will go see Cloverfield.


#8 – Yep, looks a lot like Koerner’s. I hated his concept, too “busy” and “industrial,” but I think we’re stuck with it.

Pretty faithful to the original. Faithful enough that I’m cool with it. One weird thing is the nacelles. They look like they might… transform?



Hooray! We can relax…. it’s TOS ship with TMP detailing…just what I was hoping for!

However, this ship is way before the timeframe for the movie… we are probably seeing a special scene made just for the trailer, or maybe one thwt will be used under the opening credits showing the history of the ship.


I hated the “aztec” pattern on the movie enterprises. Gimme the pristine hull of the original.

ensign joe

woohoo!!! this whole bigger scope thing is exactly what im looking for!!



Lettering is NOT CANNON! BOYCOTT!!!


I like it. Look close at the engines – there are slight fins along the length. Here are your wings folks!

Why is there steam rising from one of those open panels? Is the Enterprise being constructed IN San Francisco??


This looks great, better than I expected. Anyone planning to complain please save your breath (or fingers).

ensign joe

You know.. with that glare on the U in U.S.S. it kindof looks like an I.. as in I.S.S.



Tim Handrahan

To quote the late great chief engineer:

“Aye, She’s a beauty, lad.”



I think those ”fins” are supposed to be the updated coolers for the warp drive nacelles.

Deep Space 913

Freaking Sweet!


24 – Why can’t we complain? I don’t like the way it looks. Alas.


I just have to say that is so effing cool! Thank you, Roberto.

Harry Ballz

Mmmmmm………..can’t talk, looking! :)

Captain Scokirk

Interesting proportions for the bridge bubble and nacelles. Maybe this is to accomodate a “grander” vision of the bridge, more in scope like the Cygnus from the Black Hole


Looks good. The engines are too big, but maybe only coz of the perspective. I think in movement it will work.
Exactly as I imagined her. Until now good job.


Other than the fact that the nacelles look bit too large, I’m extremely happy with the first look!


First time I’ve ever posted anything over here, but I have to say, the ship looks great!

Johnny Ice

I don’t knew, i just hope they have fixed thin neck line. I need to see more of this. Can we have some confirmation that this is authentic Enterprise for XI movie or do we haved to wait until 18 jan..

Looks like the covers for the nacalle caps are not in place yet, and we are seeing the interior of the blades that cause the light effects. Cool that they actually incorporate that into the actual ship! I can see why some thought “airplane engines,” it looks like a turbine!

Now im officialy stoked about this movie!
Best shot ever!



I like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cant wait to see the teaser !


#34 – I thought the same thing about the nacelles at first too, but looking at this drawing, it seems right on the dot:

WOW. She looks BEAUTIFUL. This is everything we hoped for. We have matinee tickets for Cloverfield, and I can’t wait!!

Thanks, Anthony!


Oh man…this is going to bring down the entire US internet structure, and for good reason, hahaha


holy crap!!!!! aw man that looks sick!!!!

Captain Hackett

Hello, Big E

You are such a sweet beauty!


I think in “the cage” the bridge bubble also was a bit different than in the rest of the serie. So the 1701 had a redesign even before the Refit.


awesome… the next 11 months is going to feel like a prison sentence.

Xai . U.S.S. Enterprise, NCC-1701 is reborn!

“There she is… THERE she is!

First time I got goosebumps since they greenlit the movie


Look at the size of those honkin’ warp nacelles! Roberto, you guys ROCK! I can’t wait to we get a ‘full frontal’! LOL ;-)


First the cool sleek modern new logo, and then a rare glimpse into the skeleton of an absolutely iconic vessel.

Absolutely awesome trek fan day!
