Default Iowa

in the car chase scene with the huge massive canyon where Kirk loses his uncles muscle car... now I know Iowa is ugly as sin and flat already.. but wow they have it looking pretty rough in the 23rd century.. I am guessing they are trying to show a post nuclear war post global warming mid west landscape?

It looks like a quarry to me....I've never been to Iowa so I don't know if they have any that big or not...

Meh it's just a tiny part of the state. I wonder if the construction yard was Iowa too? Because that didn't look too bad...

That or it was another swath the Xindi took out of our fair planet we didn't hear about! Iowa and Florida, the keys to the planet.

Maybe the Romulans got in a bombardment or 2 of Earth during the Romulan war? Then again if they got that far it seems like they could have sealed the deal..

The Romulans couldn't handle Iowa axio, it's Earth's last defense! The Romulans word for massacre is 'hawkeye'.

I'm pretty sure that's canon that is.

I just didn't think there'd be any cliffs in Iowa.

Nice tie-in! Don't forget about the Dakotas'.....they are the gatekeepers to the planet!

They are, they are! If you can take Bismarck, the entire planet falls. Those aliens in Signs tried a similar strategy, turns out a farm house isn't the best target to capturing a planet.

NOW it all makes sense! The aliens in Signs were minions of Nero, who is the "Future Guy" from ENT, who must have sent them into Earth's past to destroy Bismarck!

But he sent them too far in the past, and they ended up destroying the German battleship Bismarck during WWII instead of the US. city Bismarck....

......now I'm tired...too much brain work-thinking-stuff....
