Can’t wait for Into Darkness! We’re just over a month out!

Great group of pics! Thanks!

I thought Carol wasn’t a Dr yet in this movie, and that she was an Ensign.

3. Really? I hadn’t heard that anywhere.


man, Yelchin’s filled out. Hubba hubba.

I still can’t believe they are doing the whole stupid “Ship is crashing, so we all go sliding around the floor” crap that SW Ep III did. That’s not how gravity, real OR artificial, works…

It does if the ship is crashing into the Earth head or tail-first (or upside down) and artificial gravity is out. Doesn’t it?

Man, that photo totally spoils Spock getting out of the volcano. Kidding. Although I do I need to get my electricity cut until the 15th.

@3. Theatre Historian_Levi

Why can’t she be both? Dr is a civilian title for MDs and PhDs. I’m not sure what her Starfleet rank is supposed to be in this movie, so can’t comment on whether she is an ensign or something higher. Either way, she could still be a Dr.

Carol (Alice Eve) is “Dr. Marcus” and she holds the rank of Lieutenant in the movie.

Love the shot on the “E” falling to earth. Can’t wait to see it play out on screen!

Looks like Spock is enjoying a smoke session.

@9 do you think the final battle involves both ships falling and it’s Harrison’s ship that actually plows into SF bay?

#7 Re: Gravity

No, that’s not how it would work. The crew would be falling at the same rate and acceleration as the ship (assuming artificial gravity is out), so they would appear weightless relative to the ship. This is why “free-fall” is often used as a synonym for “weightless.”

You could get scenes like that if AG were out, and other forces were operating on the ship (like getting hit by something), but those would be transient and frequently changing direction and intensity.

Hope that helps.

Might the sign next to Chekov mean he isn’t on a ship, but has been reassigned to a planet to do engineering work? “United Federation of Planets: Starfleet Directives Apply.” If it were a Starfleet ship, obviously Starfleet directives would apply and that notice wouldn’t be necessary.

John Harrison is Charlie X.

@ 11

Not sure what to think! I am thinking that there is a battle with the “E” and another ship – and while the other ship falls into the bay, the “E: barely escapes with it’s nacelles intact!

I am think that Harrison is a Starfleet Captain and the bridge that JJ is standing on is Harrison’s bridge. And I am trying to figure out what type of ship it is since they are wearing different uniforms.

I do know a few things (speculation of course)… I know Cumberbatch is not Khan. Nothing of what we have seen so far gives us that. I know that he isn’t April. I have read the comics and while i do think Harrison has ties to April, I don’t think it is him. I am think that Harrison is with a different division of Starfleet – just don;t know what it could be.

We must take in account what JJ and the Supreme court have been saying. JJ says he has also made this film form non-Trek fans. Meaning you won’t have vague things like “augments” or the like. The general public will not get the whole augment thing in my opinion. While there will more than likely be Easter Eggs in the movie for the fans, I don’t think there will be things in the movie that you would have to know Trek to figure out.

Anyway, that is what I am thinking.


Yea, yelchin is looking hot here..

@Trek Movie, i hope you make a News about those awesome gameplay videos from the star trek game:-)

@4 @16
Yes, he looks pretty good. They really should have rebooted him as gay but they would never be brave enough to it.

Spocks line in the transporter room: Do you mind if I smoke?

I can’t wait to see it, I just wish there was a BRAND NEW tv series set during the film’s era as well… :(

18. Agreed!

McCoy taking a DNA sample from Cumby….? Yup

8. – Thanks for the clarification, Anthony.

@1 Nor can I!

Just a crazy idea left to discuss:
what if Harrison is a timetraveller from the future who came back to bring some thing in order that happened after the events of the movie?
No one really can say what or who Harrison really is or what he has to do with Star Fleet. So Why do we clinge to the idea that he is from this time periode?
Nero wasnt from Kirks time, so why should Harrison be?
If he´s Star Fleet, couldn´t it be he´s from an operational force, like section 33?
or couldnt he be a person very much like “silva” from bonds skyfall? somebody from within the core of starfleet maybe with even more power than kirk (in retrospect to the fact that kirk commands the newly commisioned flagship), that he commands some type of experimental new warbird type of ship? something like defiant in ds9 specially designed for a more warlike federation after neros attack on earth earlier?
just thoughts written at a very early time of day.
see ya in cinema, folks.
cant wait to see the conclusion.

@3 @7

If Starfleet is to be analagous to the U.S. Navy, when you enter the Navy after graduating from a civilian school with either an M.D. or Ph.D. you start at the rank of “full” Lieutenant. Dr. Marcus would only need to attend the Officer Training School or go through ROTC at her civilian school. The US Naval Acadamy does not offer any graduate degree programs. I didn’t have time to comb through Memory Alpha looking up Starfleet degree programs.

Now prime Dr Marcus(ST2:TWOK) was a civilian scientist working for the Federation Science Council, not a Starfleet officer. MA has nothing about her ever being in Starfleet. I wonder if they will cover what lead alternate timeline Dr. Marcus to join Starfleet or just that she always was.

Anthony, is that the “Gatt2000” standing in the background of the Sulu pic?

I guess that the whole crew of this “heavy battle cruiser” are (with the exception of Admiral Marcus of course) are augments – I really do not believe that Harrison is able to “fly” that thing all alone.

So why are those augments attacking Harrison in that one scene seen in the trailer?! Well probably because they do not know who they really are – And I personally believe that even Harrison doesn`t know who he really is until he does his mind meld with Spock.

Because let`s be honest: Until this scene with those two hands touching the “glass” Harrison seems to be relatively relaxed and has no problems with being imprisoned by Kirk & Co..

Means: If Cumberbatch is really Khan “John Harrison” was the name given to him by Admiral Marcus`people after they deleted his memories and he was used as a “terrorist” to make starfleet much more “military” than it was before and starting a war between the klingon empire and the federation.

The scene with both ships entering the atmosphere makes sense if we “remember” the beginning of the movie where clearly is shown that there are specific difficulties for a starfleet vessel in a planet`s atmosphere but the crew of the Enterprise was and is able to handle it while the augments have absolutely no idea what to in such a situation.

Time is money in the movie business – And the “submarine Enterprise” scene wouldn`t be there if it wasn`t necessary for the “plot” of the movie…

Anyone else notice the “CVN-65” on the device (second photo)? Nice little homage there…

What does CVN-65 mean?

Reference to the recently-retired aircraft carrier Enterprise. CVA-65 was its number.

I hate the word augments, nothing personal.

Thank you for clarifying that Anthony.
For somereason I thought I had read that Carol was not YET a DR, in Into Darkness and that she was only a Ensign at this point.

I am afraid for Chekov. That redshirt….

But I am loving these new photos. Especially, the one with Kirk, Spock, and Uhura fending off something in that dark corridor.

And of course, Spock leaning over Uhura’s communication console and shoulder, *sigh*

I still think Harrison is Joachim.

John being the name he had before Khan got to him.

The level of Artistic design is truly exceptional..Bravo!!

#12 Re: Gravity

They would be falling at the same rate as the ship if the ship was in total free-fall. If however it was able to partially resist the pull of gravity, the occupants inside might slide to the lower end of the ship while the ship itself falls at a lesser speed.

just watched some old tng making of (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLERSdK3buU) in which patrick stewart praised the set design as being elegant. he said that in his opinion the tng set had a grace and a quietness to them, not shouting “high tech”.

the jj bridge sets seem to be the absolute opposite of this quiet gracefulness. they look like a mess. i have to agree with mr probert for criticizing the unmotivated shapes, angles and lines (http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=438292839557726&set=a.422175394502804.106069.419107208142956&type=1&theater)

#37 Flo, Well … I would love it if Enterprise’s Bridge were a combo of Enterprise NCC-1701-D and NCC-1701; but I don’t think JJ would be willing to go with the look, as someone once said, of a hotel [their criticism of NCC-1701D’s bridge].

The carpet, the graceful appearance … IDK, doesn’t look so “operationally oriented” as JJ’s Enterprise or even TOS’s NCC-1701 … tho’ I do remember that under stress, new Enterprise’s glass-fronted Bridge began to crack ….? What’s that about, wouldn’t a starship be built to withstand all kinds of conditions?

28 super..excellent conjectures on your part….khan having his memory wiped, to be used by sf then regaining his identity would be brilliant….

hey bob orci–listened to whitley strieber on coasttocoastam tonite…,,he has alien implants that have reports proving they are extraordinary but no one interested in studying them…incredible..he also mentioned he has a comedy treatment of the grays no one in hollywood interedted in..sounds brilliant..u would think paul whitch our new scotty was in would open some minds..maybe jj n you guys should get ahold of whitley n see what he has n if it has any potential…..

The torpedo shows TNG design influences. This is probably due to input from Classic Spock, who knows a thing or two about technology from the 24th Century. :-)

I love it!

@Marja (38), I’ve always thought that the bridge of the starship must be the best-protected area of the vessel, so I’d like to believe that there are multiple levels of force shielding around the entire area. Thus, even if the front display screen were to completely disintegrate, the bridge would be well protected by emergency shields far stronger than the “glass” material itself.

The only reason that the nuEnterprise has a “glass” windshield is for resaons of economy, since the force shields, through multiple protected sources, would be a significant draw upon the ship’s electroplasmonic resources if left to run continuously.

In fact, there are some who speculate that the emergency bridge shields and inertial dampening fields are so strong that, under certain conditions, the ship could run into an asteroid at warp speed and the bridge occupants could still survive. (Not the entire ship, mind you.) Source: Me.

Sure they are build to last but they were literally dipping their toes into an artificial black hole which might be a tad more stressful as what Starfleet thought ”normal” operational or combat stress would… or in fewer words they haven’t build the E to fly through a friggin’ Black Hole.

New theory: Harrison’s gripe has to do with androids (GATT2000). At one point a certain Noonian is mentioned. Everyone in the audience gasps (KAAAAAAAAHHHN!) only to later be revealed as the grandfather (or whatever the timeline would make him) of Dr. Noonian Soong.

The device being lowered (or raised), looks interesting, but you would think the would be using some type of anti-grav technology in place to do the heavy lifting.

No, no, no! Any male member of the Soong family has to be played by Brent Spiner. End of! LOL.

31- The carrier Enterprise was reclassified CVN-65, formerly CVA-65. I honestly don’t see that in the second picture though.

I REALLY hope they don’t destroy the Enterprise again though. It was powerful in TSFS, but it was only so powerful because the ship is supposed to be like another character. Let’s not keep destroying it before we get attached to it.

These shots look great. Can’t wait to see the film, but is anyone else a little concerned about the release date of the film? Trek has one weekend at no1 assuming it beats Iron Man in it’s second week. The following week comes Fast and Furious, and those films have killed at the box office. Once again Paramount positions a Trek film in the middle of almost unbeatable competition. Why on earth don’t they release one of these at Christmas when it would dominate?

Has any character in the trailers actually mentioned or said aloud the name John Harrison?

If not, the name could just be a hoax on us….

In fact I wonder if the film was shot and edited so that only a few people really know… Not even most of the film crew or the actors…

The name is only on PR materials, or am I wrong?

So the last movie was a wanna be Star Wars film. This one is now Batman/Mission Impossible. Looks like we will never get a real Star Trek film again.

Call me when its over.

I wonder if when they repair the Enterprise they will ditch everything but the saucer and redesign a more attractive ship.

I rewatched the Abrams film last night and I actually forgot how much fun it was. I focus so much on the changes that I forget the nods hed did do to TOS.

I still prefer the prime universe and always will but I have to say Abrams film was great fun. Yes the story is still thin but the character moments worked well and some moments really reminded me of why I love TOS so much.

I still prefer my clasical music but there was a lot of nods to the Trek I like in Abrams film.

And the editing and music was great to see again. I can now say Into Darkness is looking more exciting to me. But I like to see it as the next chapter of the legacy.
