Yeah, there is no wiggling out of this one. It was a big mistake.

You also then see him walking up steps after he gets off the turbo lift. So where did he actually go when he got on the lift that he had to walk up?

So how goes the battle, Iceman? Good to see you!

:logical:

The battle goes well...I'm staying out of trouble, which may or may not be a good thing!!!
How things by you?

They grow up quickly.
The art world has been slow in sales, I did well at the auctions at my club in the city. Been contacting a couple galleries in CT and the Hudson River area, so maybe next year I'll have some new locations.

The Kelvin picture does not appear upside down but I do agree it is best to use actual screen shots so there is no confusion. Yes this continuity error was mentioned very early while the movie was still out but it is a good observation.

Here is a much clearer view of the design of the Kelvin:

The picture you posted it looks like there is a glow where the shuttle bay is. This picture is from screenrant.com but do you know where it was made? I only say this because it can cause confusion when a screen shot is not used so I agree when you post an actual screen shot. I feel this makes less room for misinterpretation.

Who are you asking the question to?

That "glow" is a "button" that could be clicked on the Intel site that would give information and more pictures on the shuttle bay and impulse engines (you'll see a dimmer one over the impulse vents).

:logical:

Yes that is correct and I remember now. So in this way it was confusing because it is an official picture from a virtual tour of the Kelvin except this rollover feature created an optical illusion of looking like a nacelle. This explains it thank you very much. And ultimately the important thing here is the error in the OP is true. I also like the way you combine humor to point it out because Robau is truly the most awesome Captain in the universe. Even when he is lost in his own ship the corridors will twist and turn which allow him to find the bridge without any effort.

Take note of the fact that they are almost identical.

Yup, and I'd pay 50 bucks for an official tech manual with pics, specs and drawings of the ships and other items seen in the movie.

As I said earlier:

I wan't some kind of official tech manuals. I have the STAR TREK: THE ART OF THE FILM book and it says the NCC-1701 is 1200 meters (3937 feet) long! B.S.!!!! Pretty book with a lot of nice pictures and some fun information, but dang!!!!

There is no way it can be 1200 meters... I just can't buy into that.

Based on the pic bellow it can be no longer than 311 meters +/- 1 meter in length(based on a comparison of the Shuttle bay doors:



EDIT: the design of the secondary hull is decieving in regards to the actual size of the doors. They are nearly Identical in size.

People have reasons to believe what they believe. There are official sources which give the size of these ships but if that information is discarded it will still be open for debate. In this way people will determine how large they feel the ship is in accordance to their own observations and interpretations.

How can something be almost 4 times the size of what is observed on screen?

A human has an average height of 1.8 m not 5.5 m and in the end when all is said and done when you look at things that are scaled to the size of a man, like docking ports one can determine the actual size.

It's clearly obvious to me they are just throwing numbers arround just because they can, not because they are accurate.
