Of course, the TOS Warp core was also completely different visually from all the other engine rooms so maybe that had a part to play in the thrumming.

I mean, to an extent you can't use what shows like TNG etc established because by going back to the TOS time frame you're going back to a period before anything from these series were established anyway.

The film is about TOS - not the later shows.
I see it this way: TOS is part of TREK. TREK had thrumming warp cores. Even ENT's engine was a version of a thrumming warp core. ENT predates TOS in the Trek universe.... So there is nothing consistent about NuTrek's engine room. I know this little nit-pick, maybe "pet peeve", of mine does not effect the overall story, but in regards to feeling like I was watching "trek"... it goes a long way. I was actually surprised when I realized how this sort of thing bothered me.

I think we all have pet peeves and things that bother is more than others, but then sometimes it's hard to get bothered oneself by the things that do bother others.

For me, the warp core is one of them. It's just a non-issue for me.

I understand, Kevin. I was just trying to explain why I was bothered by it, NOT trying to change your mind. From a story point of view it has no impact whatsoever. I just think they could have thrown details like that to us fans as a bone. I still think it would not have turned off non-fans or the pop-corn crowd. Only "nerds" like me would have enjoyed it more!

I know, I was just saying that what's an issue for one isn't for another. There's no larger implication behind it.

It's why Zim and I disagree as well, we have totally different perspectives on Star Trek as a whole and his issues with the film just are not mine.

I didn't need it, is all I can say I guess.

We are agreed then!! On the "issue for one not being an issue for another" subject!!
