startrek_enterprise_big-thumb-550x233-165031

SciFiWire has the scoop in an interview with ILM:

….How updated is the Enterprise?

Roger Guyett, visual effects supervisor: When I was a kid—when I bought toys or when I built things—I always wanted stuff to move. And one thing that frustrated me about the original Enterprise was that nothing moves on it. It was just a very static thing. …

I don’t know how familiar you are with all of the terminology of the Enterprise, but there is a main hull, which is the big disk. There is a secondary hull, which is a tube, and then you have two engines. And at the front of the bottom sort of cylinder there is this thing called the “collection plate” [aka the navigational deflector in Trek parlance]. We made ours move, so it actually sort of comes out, and it grows, and you can move it around. We just made the whole thing much more contemporary.

And also when the ship goes into warp; of course, we had to create our version of warp, too, but you’ll see the fins actually split apart slightly. So it goes into kind of like a warp mode, and from my perspective, all of those things add a level of interest and … design to the whole process and make it so much more fun to work on every aspect of the process of the Star Trek world.

When you are on the Enterprise, you got to see a lot of the Enterprise. You can set different moments in the movie and different places— … the engineering room or corridor or medical bay—so that you feel the enormous extent of the Enterprise. …

Star Trek World Premiere in Austin, TX with Leonard Nimoy…

Clips courtesy of MightyBest:

Fans were invited to a screening of The Wrath of Khan, but when the film burned in the gate, Leonard Nimoy burst through the doors to save the day with a print of the new Star Trek film. Thanks to Paramount and Leonard Nimoy, Austin hosted the world premiere of Star Trek on April 6, 2009 at 10:00 PM

Film.com:

…Disguised in a trenchcoat and hat, Leonard Nimoy slowly made his way to the stage at which point I yelled out an expletive I cannot repeat here. The crowd went nuts. You can watch the whole exchange in the link above, but sadly the camera doesn’t capture the undistiilled excitement of the crowd. We were pumped. But did the film live up to the expectations after an intro like that?

Yes. Yes it did. In short the film is incredible. A loving, riveting return to a series long crippled by spinoffs, studio meddling, budget restraints and a slavish adherence to continuity that was occasionally grappled to some very silly tropes. While this is a reboot of the series, complete with a huge budget, some big name actors and special effect sequences that dwarf anything you’ve seen before in a Trek film. But this is a lot more than a summer blockbuster reboot.remake. It has heart. A lot of heart. This movie loves the series and its character so much that it hurts and strives at every turn to ensure that the characters are represented as they were intended…
