Default Does anyone know who the technical consultants are for this film?

Just wondering who Abrams is going to use for advisors. Unfortunately, although the Okuda's would have been a perfect choice, i don't believe they have anything to do with this film.

Yeah, I heard one technical consultant is one of the scientists that engineered the Cassini mission to Saturn. I can't remember her name, I'll see if I can find that article.

Here it is, Carolyn Porco. I don't know if the Okuda's will be on this show.

I though some one said that Okuda wouldn't be on this one that they got there own people.

I've heard they got this scientist I mentioned in the post above, I'm not sure about Okuda, I don't think they have any of the previous star trek production team. All new blood, which perhaps it needs, but the Okuda's, I'd want them there, cause they've been with it so long and from a production standpoint, they know their s*&t. But I do like the fact they got a scientist as well.

I don't think that is a good idea. Okuda has a next generation style. I believe this needs something different.

This is going to be quite an interesting voyage. This lady knows her space. I'm getting the feeling that this film will be more of a re-envisioning than we previously thought, and less of a trip down memory lane than we might have hoped. I really, really hope that fundamental elements of the story line aren't totally ignored. It would be sad to lose all of the great ideas that made Star Trek the extraordinary television legend that it has become.

That is the very reality I've have been learning to come to grips with in the last month.
It has been ... sobering to say the list. I feel like I've been bracing myself for a jump in incredibly cold water.

To my knowledge, Dr. Porco will be consulting on the realism of space, planets and such physics involved. It's not like she's designing the ships or costumes, she's consulting with ILM's visual effects supervisor on the film to make the imagery of planets, space phenomena and other things look more realistic.

Dr. Porco is an expert in planetary imaging, not necessarily a source for TREK canon and sci-fi history.

Might there be more than just a few planetary phenomenon? Perhaps there there a singularity involved... or quantum filament... I like realism...It's given trek int he past that science part of the genre.. What if this is happen in our same solar system. That would be excellent.
