Depending on whether or not you plan on seeing Quantum of Solace this weekend, you either have a little over three or five days remaining until you can check out the trailer for Star Trek. If you are forced to wait until Monday, at least Paramount has begun slowly releasing other media updates, including this first official shot of the new Enterprise.
Check Out the Enterprise
Since this is a prequel, wouldn't this actually be called the old Enterprise?
New, as in mission logs, and we can spot the differences. As posted by EW, the Enterprise looks like it has yet to see any action nor spoil any of its multiple coats of wax. Looking back to the first Star Trek movie, director JJ Abrams remembers the original model well.
"The coolest thing about it—maybe the coolest thing in the movie—was when you flew around the ship, you could see all the different panels that made up the ship," says the director of the forthcoming Trek reboot, slated for a May 8, 2009 release. "It was the first time I had ever seen that level of attention, that love of detail, given to the tangible, practical reality of the ship."
In an effort to make the Enterprise as familiar as possible, Abrams combined some design elements from the model in the series and the model from Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
