Finally! A first peek at the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 from J.J. Abrams' Star Trek 11.

Here are my thoughts based on the photo above, which is from the Star Trek trailer:

- I know we can't see the entire thing, but it looks like they've applied the same mosaic skin texture to the ship that was in the early Star Trek movie versions of the refitted Enterprise.

- While we're seeing them with perspective in the shot above, it looks like the nacelles are cylindrical in shape, just as they were in the original design.

- The nacelles have the same warp coil intercooler intakes angled inwards at 45 degrees that the original ship had. (Yes, I am a full-on Trek geek.)

- It looks like they're staying with the same outline and dimensions, at least on the saucer section of the hull.

Overall it looks to me like they took the details from the redesign that was done for Star Trek: The Motion Picture and applied them to the original NCC-1701.

Based on what I see above, my Trek fan freakout factor meter is registering very low. It looks like they are indeed trying to be faithful to the original and appease the existing fanbase.

What do you think?
