Default Ship corridor

Has anyone else noticed the difference:

My best guesses are that they are different parts of the ship or a completely different ship or building / station.
Any other thoughts?

I'm starting to think that JJ went with a few set re-designs after the main site and viral site were created.I don't think ncc-1701 is going to get any updates, actually.

I think BoldlyGo took that job over.

Good guess. It is mentioned from some of the reports of the 20 Minute press screenings that the deeper you get into the ship it seems to get more "industrial."

The curved corridor reminds me of the ones in Star Wars Millennium Falcon

I don't know. Whenever I see the high polished floors I can only think of Tech Sergeant Chen commenting on how clean the floors are on the NSEA Protector.

Sure. The first one is probably concept art, not anything you'll actually see in the flick.

the new corridor brings to mind that clone planet (white walls) in star wars, the death star (polished black floor) and the millenium falcon

not surprising coming from the visual designer having a star wars background... I can live with this.

I think the darker image is probably the "bad guy's" ship. The bright "pretty" one is probably the Enterprise or other Federation starship. Being that JJ has mentioned he is a Star Wars fan I would guess he is influenced by it. Look at Episode IV's opening capture of Leiah's ship. The pretty white ship is the "good guys", and the dark metallic ships are the "bad guys".

Ugh. Star Trek has done this ever since TOS ended. "Bad guys" live on dark, gloomy, anemically-lit ships and have bad hygiene. It's like when they're designing their spaceships, the guys in charge kept telling the architects "remember, we're EVIL. Our ships should look EVIL."
