Default Any word on Shuttles?

I would love to see a more aerodynamic design. Imagine the Galileo with wings and a conical nose!

The only shuttle I've seen is the one in Ice with Kirk climbing out (If that is a shuttle) and have not seen the whole design. Has anyone seen a whole shuttle for this film? Did I miss it in one of the trailers?

There are a whole fleet of them at the graduation. They seem a little more aerodynamic than the original box but still no wings.

The box shape works great from a standpoint of storage though. You can remove the nacelles and just stack the buggers on top of each other.

Either way, Spock's look of consummate RAWR!!!ness says Kirk's having a bad day.
