Intel has a Star Trek movie tie-in page set up to promote the film and they’ve added a cool Flash-based look at the USS Kelvin, the ship commanded by Captain Christopher Pike. I have a feeling they’ll be adding a lot of cool stuff to the site as the weeks go by – probably shuttlecraft, other ships (maybe even the USS Enterprise itself).

I took a few screen grabs and enhanced them to make it easier to make out details – you can see them below.

  1. The Kelvin is an interesting design, but the proportions don’t support the crew compliment that Captain Pike indicated were saved (800). The Constitution Class has a crew compliment of 430 ( 43 Officers and 387 Crew), George Kirk saved 800, now there were undoubtedly casualties that didn’t make it off the ship, this makes it closer to a Galaxy Class in compliment. This makes the Kelvin twice as large as Enterprise and she was the Flagship, and truly a Battle wagon.
    That just doesn’t seem right to me.

    • Yeah, but isn’t the 430 crew compliment from the “real” Star Trek, and not the fake/alternate Star Trek? The alternate Enterprise was much bigger than the genuine article.

      Besides, it takes two nacelles to create a warp bubble, and the Kelvin only has one. ;-)
