Full "Star Trek" Enterprise Revealed

Posted: November 12th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Full "Star Trek" Enterprise RevealedSubmit Comment
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we now have a look at the full Enterprise from the upcoming JJ Abrams-directed "Star Trek" film. The magazine also chatted with Abrams about the picture. Here is a clip from the interview:

Abrams wanted to take the original TV series Enterprise and the movie franchise Enterprise and fuse them together into a new yet familiar Enterprise. His ambition was a ship that felt very realistic, that could "stand up" to today's f/x standards—and beyond. "If you're going to do Star Trek there are many things you cannot change. The Enterprise is a visual touchstone for so many people. So if you're going to do the Enterprise, it better look like the Enterprise, because otherwise, what are you doing?"

The trailer for "Star Trek" is set to appear online on Monday. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on May 8th, 2009.

It seems Star Trek has gone the way of The Phantom Menace. That Enterprise looks WAY more high tech than the original and this is supposed to be a prequel. This is the main continuity problem with making prequels to sci-fi works.

It looks more high tech because the world has changed since the 1960s. A return to the original (which was high tech for its time) would be, in effect, a dumbing down so to speak. Look at the Enterprise in the "Enterprise" tv show; that is a prequel as well but the ship and the tech on the show is vastly more advanced looking than the original tv series.I look at it more of a re-engineering of the original in order to fit the evolution of film/technology and to meet the movie goer's expectations as such. I remember reading an article concerning the "lack" of gadgets in Casino Royale and how it was very un-Bond; the reasoning for toning down the use of tech was that in the 1960s, a watch phone or satellite tracking technology was science fiction at best. Today, these things are common place and then some and to avoid any necessary or unwanted camp, the film had to be adjusted accordingly. Sort of the same thing is going on here imo. The US Navy specwar teams have boats that make the Enterprise from the 60s look like a joke; how would it be received if they were to dust off the old props and roll them back out? The only people who would enjoy that would be the purist nerds.

I didn't realize a watch phone was that common. I need to run to the AT&T store down the street and grab one.

The way of Phantom Menace?!? Sorry n8r, but the enterprise always looks the friggin' same. We accept its lameness- like we accept evergreens in our house on Christmas- it will always look odd, so deal with it and just add more lights. lol

I think this has to be one of the most daunting hurdles in sci-fi-dom. The continuity of the original Star Trek series. With it's outlandish technology, and equally outlandish uniforms; it just doesn't seem feasible that an entity like Starfleet went from that to how it looked in future incarnation like TNG and Voyager. But you can't erase that time from Star Trek folklore because you can't erase Kirk and the others. But I guess any sci-fi show/movie created decades ago will suffer the same. The way technology evolves, maybe in 20 years we'll look back and say how ridiculous some of the ideas shown in today's view of the future were ridiculous by 2028 standards.
