I don't know if this matters, since I'm not really up on ship design, but there's a shot in the trailer where you can see the Enterprise (?) jump to warp, and it looks like the back ends of the nacelles are glowing.

Yep they are, on both the Enterprise and the Kelvin:

It's like...boosters....
They did that so people will understand they're engines...
*sight*

taking the intelligence of the viewer for granted.

Reminds me more of the Defiant and Steamrunner-class starships and how their engines face behind the ship.

perhaps that's a better way to look at it...
but I know that's not why they did it.
It's supposed to look like exhaust....not just a bright flash.

I like the Kelvin design...

Really? I think it's rediculous. Secondary hull above? Nacelle below? I've never seen anything like it.
