Looks like a shuttle of some sort coming out of the water. The form factor does match a starship.

I also thought I saw the TransAmerica Pyramid during it and that looks like the Bay bridge in the background which would seem right from my memories of being in San Francisco.

The starship plunging into a bay (anyone else think it looked a bit like the outline of an NX Class vessel?) also looks like San Francisco again because of the general look of the background so my suspicion is that most of the city material in the teaser appears to be that city. Which would make sense if the villain is assaulting Starfleet and it's heart.

Of course, if it's Mitchell and he has vastly increased psi powers then that could explain how he might have the ability to bring down starships and 'detonate the fleet' which remains a phrase the exact meaning of which is unclear since why would the E escape his abilities in that way.

I also think the ship emerging from a sea could be the Enterprise. While you just see nacelles and the emergence of the letters NCC I think you can also see briefly a saucer begin to emerge as well.
Yep, it IS SF...where somehow London was integrated with San Francisco and made it a larger city... at least thats my theory. That ship that was emerging out WAS the Enterprise. IDK why people insist it's a new ship, when clearly it's not. The one CRASHING however... I thought it was either a Prime Universe Constitution Class, or the Enterprise E. We'll see in the next trailer hopefully.

After looking again it could very well be the Enterprise. Just so odd why it would be in water.

Maybe they forgot to disconnect the Captain's Yatch before taking a plunge.

That's got to be the Enterprise...because later in the trailer, they show what looks like the Enterprise plowing INTO the water.

Besides, as it rises, I can see NCC-1701 on its nacelles.

Yep, it is pretty clearly the big E. Even if one could not see it clearly it would be obvious that it has to be the Enterprise as you want the eighth character and not a random starship or a shuttle (we already saw a shuttle diving into water in VOY's Thirty Days and while this was great on the small screen it wouldn't be visually orgasmic on the big screen) to be the star in a diving scene.
On a side note, perhaps it is just a kind of stupid Vernes echo but I think that anything with water is great in Trek. The above mentioned episode with the water planet had this little-boy-read-an-adventure-novel atmosphere and the Xindi-Aquatics in ENT were fascinating so I appreciate that the new movie wil feature a diving scene with the Enterprise.

OK I'm on board with it being Enterprise BUT this is about as ridiculous as Enterprise being built in Iowa. That is until I see it in context. LOL!

First one is the Ent rising, but the second one is clearly another class (look at the pylons and nacelles!)
