Saw an advanced screening of the new Star Trek this morning. Oh my goodness. Hands down one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. Everything was just spot on. The characters were refreshing. Loved this movie. Hard core trekkies will not be let down.

I loved the computer animation and realism when the ship was being built.

Hardcore Trekkies are already complaining about everything from the ship re-design to changing Star Trek 'history'.

The franchise needed a reboot it was getting stale.(despite the great LW CG being used in the TV series)

I can't wait to see it.

To those that like the construction shots, I made a desktop background from the first teaser trailer when it came out.

It was from the slow upward pan across the front. Slightly odd to stitch together due to perspective changes and just was able to remove construction parts that blocked the view. It turned out nice.

Here's a widecreen desktop:

And a raw full size image before cropping and sizing for backgrounds:

I do wonder why they changed the construction to land based rather than in orbit. Even our current space station was assembled in orbit. Only the components were built on the ground. From a preview I saw on TV, young Kirk visits the construction site, I guess that is why.

The ship is actually quite beautiful. Everyone in the theatre went nuts when the Interprise was shown (finished) for the first time. Beautiful I tell you.

Hi All,

I am looking forward to this prequell....
The trailers have looked awesume...

It will be interesting to see the action styling revamp and different storytelling style the director is bringing.

Even my wife, who is a hard core action, but doesn't like Sci FI...is looking forward to seeing this movie.

Cheers,

yeah that thing would never get off earth...still if the story called for land based construction...well as long as the story is good, that's one i can let go.

Has anybody heard what modeling program(s) were used for the movie yet?
