No, but they have grilles.

They don't glow.

The Kelvin's are glowing in shots i've seen. So most likely the Enterprise's will too. Have faith people.

the bussard collectors are obscured by the saucer section. Unless I missed something, there is no shot of the E's nacelles front on.

Just saw a variation of the new trailer (the one where it opens w/ Kirk driving up to the Big E on his motorcycle - aired during Terminator - The Sarah Connor Chronicles)...

I'll rewind on my DVR - but I can plainly see the rear, endcaps of the nacelles glowing, in the Enterprise fly-by.

Well there is this one:



What is interesting is there does seem to be something going on inside the collectors, either they're breaking down or there's some kind of static electricity style effect going on.

Here is a response from the designer of the new Enterprise, Ryan Church, to fan concerns that arose from the first picture of the ship:

"I’m not going to get involved in the mud slinging, here, but needed to assure you guys and gals: we’ve built you a fine ship. To clarify: there’s a slight optical illusion occurring here, consequence of the “camera” angle. For Rick and others who worry the nacelles don’t have a clear line of sight over the disc — they, in fact, do. We were hardly working in a vacuum. I raided ILM reference photos like a madman. We were deferential to “inviolates” of Star Trek design vocabulary. Additionally, the profile here isn’t 100% representative, because, as you’ve noticed, the Bussards are dimmed. The true profile of the nacelles may or may not be revealed here, and that’s all I’ll say."

Found it on TrekMovie.com

No they look like the mechanism behind the cover is spining or slightly visible as I've seen before.

They are spinning, thus generating a technobabble field which allows the doodad system to acquire the blin blan.

Let us hope that they keep the technojargain oit of this new movie, shall we? I've been a lifelong fan, and after Enterprise even I was going "I don't CARE!"
