Default the Vette

I think I may have some insight into the 'Vette.

I just realized that in ST-TMP we learned that Kirk had a fondness for antiques. If Kirks father (or Uncle) collected them (one of them obviously did) this could be where it all started. Even the bike could be an antique even though it looks a bit futurisitc. (I remember reading a post grumbling about the motorcycle having wheels).


I tried posting this before my account was activated so I'll post it here.


The use of a '66 'Vette is significant in that ST-TOS aired in '66. The clip shows the speedometer starting out at 66 mph and accelerates through the mph/years up to about '79 when ST-TMP came out.

Then Abrams completely destroys that prisitne 'Vette by plunging it into the ravine! His way of saying that Star Trek is going to be drastically changed? i.e. the OLD is dead.

Now mind you. That's just my opinion of the trailer images. I hope the movie stays as true to TOS as is possible given that we are a much smarter audience than we were 40 years ago.

Yah he traded up from a GTO after the first season's paychecks.

There's a funny story (I think in The Making of Star Trek)about how Shatner, Nimoy, and De Kelly all bought new cars after the TOS first season. They parked them in a row in the lot and on like the first or second day that they all had them, Kelly accidently backed into Nimoy's car. Nimoy then came around riding his bicycle (as he usually did on the Paramount lot) and Kelly said "Len! I wrecked our cars!" and it was a scene with the two of them (in full costume) examining the damage in the parking lot.

I guess you had to be there.
