FX Video of Enterprise in Star Trek?

io9 are running an article titled “First Clip of New Enterprise?”…is it?

Again we consulted our resident expert, Senator Vreenak

Maker tried to get TrekMovie.com to run it
It seems every couple of months someone tries to foist a fake on the community. This faker sent in this clip to TrekMovie.com yesterday. He claimed it was from a ‘friend’ who worked for a bay area company ‘working on current productions.’ It was obviously a fake, but after TrekMovie.com questioned the authenticity and source he replied back with the following message “I’m going to send this to Aint It Cool… bye”. Apparently AICN didn’t fall for it either, but io9 did.

Yeah, it’s pretty much an Enterprise shot from TOS, probaby remastered TOS, added into the sunset shot. It’s a well-done fake, but that’s all

ha ha, fakers foiled again!

The senator never lies! Haha!

Why would anyone consider that backdrop a “futuristic” city…looks just like the skyline of any number of major metropolitan areas.

This is so fake it makes my teeth hurt.

It looks pretty crappy…I’m not sure how anyone would believe this.

ITS A FAAAAAKKKKEEEE!!! Once … Again :( :sigh:

concur with #5

HAHA! That’s not even a good fake!!

Well done fake it it aint. Every dude and his grandma can make a shakey cam spaceship/UFO footage clip these days. Just google youtube.

Vreenak The Magnificent, you are correct, sir. Ho!!

Now, JJ, can we have some “real” clips /stills from the movie? My interest is starting to wander…

These fake things that keep getting posted not only make me want to see it more, they make me wonder. If a fan or two can make something that people MIGHT think is real, what is the new Enterprise gonna look like?

Oh, just a blurry video, or at least a shot of the secondary hull! People would go crazy! Or the bridge, the new crew, the officer uniforms, anything.


Jesus, that’s not even the Enterprise from the new movie. How dumb do you have to be to fall for something like this?

It’s easily recognizable as not being from the new film because the nacelles resemble the TOS ones – not those over-sized things we saw in the first official XI picture.

awful attempt at a fake as well.

Powerlines strung across the skyline in TOS timeframe? Enterprise just cruisin’ the loop in Bay town?

Where’s Stanky when you need him… or better yet…Elaine Benes?
“Fake, fake, fake…fake..!”

How can that even be considered a fake?? The nacelles are WAY too small.

Not only a fake, but a dumb shot.

It begs the question: Why would this be happening?

Agree with #9. Go to youtube and search for UFO footage. Some of the fakers are pretty good.. And some, not so much.

By that I mean.. It’s not even good enough to be considered a fake. It should be titled 3yr old experiments with graphix.

Shame on others trying to fool people. :)

I like how it looks like some joe with a camcorder who is taping footage of a UFO.

i know it a fakeand a bad fake but hey i liked it dnt know why but its somethin to look at would make a good teaser trailer the enterprise flyin through san fransisco

Fake……..but it bring up the point…….I think it’s time for JJ to toss us a crumb of SOMETHING.

here is what i think, perhaps it is the ship leaving drydock and is probably moving upward, much like the hindenburg did in the robert wise film from 1976…

god dam how does Vreenak always know whens things are fake , does he get the Tal Shiar to look at it , or is he just a genius , i guess i will never know

It’s a good thing this is a fake.

its a really bad fake. questions are begged:
– why would an fx shot leave the timer on?
– why would the enterprise ‘decend’ on a earth-like planet.

Can I ask a really stupid question? What’s on the other side of the video? I looked at this and I’m starting to think it might be some kind of virual marketing campaign. Because if you were going to make a fake, why would it be cropped in such a way as to only show half the screen? I’m starting to smell a cloverfield type marketing device here.

I wouldn’t dismiss this so quickly: could it perhaps be a ‘pre-vis’ shot?

Of course “IT’S A FAKE!”. The design of the Enterprise didn’t even resemble what we saw in the trailer. It was clearly the old design. Still looked cool considering it must be fan made.

Did someone say this movie is being delayed?

Good catch, TrekMovie.

pretty obvious fake. we need jj to throw us a genuine crumb as #21 keenyB says.

i’m convinced this is the real thing. look closely and you can see the flames painted on the side of the primary hull.

Heh. Gotta love the Vreenak thing. That NEVER gets old!! =D

But yes…JJ…c’mon, give us something!!

And, also, not sure if this was already discussed and said somewhere or anything but can I ask…is the deflector dish on the new E still gonna be…well…a dish (as far as we know)?

Were it viral, we’d be seeing the Movie Enterprise, not the one that Vreenak so easily smoked out. Further, the sight of the E traveling behind telephone wires in 23rd Century San Francisco. I think that this is not only a fake, but a bad one. I would have expected better of someone with Quicktime or some other movie software.

Thankfully, we have Senator Vreenak as our resident bunko scam detector.

hey! did you notice the shuttlecraft near the bottom right. goofy but cool touch.

Hey, if it were genuine, would we have Benny Russell kneeling on the ground screaming, “It is REEEEAL!”?

I <3 Vreenak.

#34 —

section9: that’s the first thinhg I noticed also…you would think that by the 23rd century, they would have figured out a way to put all of there telephone lines underground.

to those calling for Abrams to ‘throw us some crumbs’ there wont be any pics or footage of the Ent or the cast in uniform or Nimoy as Spock or phasers etc as THE FILM HAS BEEN PUT BACK TO MAY 2009!!!

maybe if it had still been coming out xmas 08 stuff like that would be being shown around about now and a full trailer attached to Indy 4 but no where near yet…

some offical stills will come about later on in the year (summer..) and a new full trailer at xmas but nothing yet

We’re lucky we got to see the teasertrailer when we did – as that would have probably been attached to Indy 4 had the decision to move the film to May 09 been made earlier

To be fair…io9 didn’t fall for it exactly…they just let it up to their visitors, whether to decide if it is real or not.

I, to be honest, don’t know what to make of it. It looks trather sophisticated and you can’t do it in just a few minutes on your average computer. I tend to think that it really might be some kind of test. Maybe it was done before they had the finished design of their new Enterprise.

On the other hand..the Enterpriose flying in the atmosphere…hmmmmm…that’s not canon..that’s for sure :-))

Um, yeaaaaaah. The Enterprise actually flying 400 feet off the ground.

Vreenak strikes again, baby!

Hey Orci Or Kurtzman, tell JJ to Throw us a Freakin Bone here already, Just give us a pic of the Enterprise!!! I hope you guys are reading this

The Trailer out at the moment has been dubbed the “announcement” trailer. I’d expect a 2nd teaser at SDCC and then a full trailer in january 2009 – SDCC should be the start of a full advertising campaign for Star Trek

Yea, can wait to find out what comes out of SDCC.

Ha Ha, Nice try!!!

You can’t get anything pass Senator Vreenak!

Yeah, it’s a pretty cool fake. That’s a shot I’d love to see. I love a well done fabrication.

I’m surprised that the gullible delinquents at AICN didn’t fall for this. Senator Vreenak must have filled them in.

Can’t possibly be the Enterprise. If you remember from the trailer, the nacells are alot bigger. I agree with Jon, probably a shot from the remastered series! Glad to see the staff at Trekmovie.com cannot be fooled!

You could tell it’s a fake just by the image of the video. The Enterprise would never fly that low. And if it were launching, then it would be going upword into space.
