You'd have to chew gum every time you go on the turbolift.

Indeed.

"Computer, deerekt torboleeft to ze lawatory."

"Voice print unrecognized."

"Computer, deerekt tuurrboleeft to ze laff-va-tory!"

"En route." (turbolift starts moving)

"Bozhe moi!"

"Voice print unrecognized."

"Chort vazhmi!!! I heff to go to zee ken! Step on eet!"

"Voice print unrec---"

(Chekov blasts the turbolift controls with his phaser)

That is caused by the pressure difference between the top and bottom of the really tall building brought on by the large central focus of gravity (the Earth).

On a Starship, they presumably have the pressure the same on every deck, because each deck has it's own source of gravity.

Seems as if these new turbolifts are conventional lifts and exclude vertical movement. I missed the voice command, it was always nice to know where characters are going to and in the movie it would have helped even more to make the audience more familiar with certain parts of the ship.

Ah! I learned something new today. Thanks!

Didnt anyone else feel that the Turbo Lift's moved slightly too fast in this movie. Considering the distance the 'car' had to travel in both captain Robau and Spock's scene it was crazy fast. It must go over 100mph and had no affect on the occupant (even when it changes direction from going up and down the ship to along it).

Spock was in the lift like 2 seconds to go the entire height of the ship! I also noticed the great seemless camera take were he left the shuttle bay and entered the bridge with no cut of camera angle change in the film. Either clever CGI or the lift set was built on rollers to switch it over to the next set.

Im used to TNG style lifts were your in there for so long there usually alot of dialogue!

Compressed time for scene pacing, nothing more nothing less. And nothing new for all kinds of Trek scenes where such dialog was unneeded. You think Enterprise got from Earth to the battle in just a few minutes?

I have no idea how they did that, and didn't even pick it up until it was mentioned here.

This movie set the new standard for SFX, whereas previously I thought Transformers did.

God I love that shot from way above showing The Enterprise weaving thru the debris! It was too short, just like I would've liked to see the woman sucked out of the Kelvin a couple of seconds longer.
