Default Kelvin Bridge?

As suggested by TM, this could be the Kelvin bridge.

You can't really see much of anything.

So, is J.J. Abrams the communications or helm officer on the Kelvin?

The Kelvin bridge is shaping up to be darker (lighting-wise) and more gritty than the Enterprise bridge. That orange/red colour palette has been seen in this photo and the one of the alien bridge officer now. It's pretty obvious the Enterprise will have the white lighting dominating the visuals even when the ship is on red alert, but the Kelvin bridge should be more interesting.

It's a TOS style bridge.

I'd say the Kelving Bridge will resemble more of what is generally accepted as Star Trek. It'll look more like a starfleet bridge is what I mean. The Kelvin is in the Trek universe before Nero does his alternate timeline business and it also takes place before Kirk is born, so I'd say the Kelvin designs would be more true to Trek than any other part of the movie, considering so much of it is to take place in an alternate timeline.

Look at the Kelvin itself, it certainly looks more Trek than anything in the trailer, other than the Kelvin shots of course!

LOL - I was going to say the same thing...

If he is - he must be allergic to Retinax like Kirk.

If part of the film is to highlight the changes that Nero affects as a result of his interference, then wouldn't it be curious if they showed that effect on the ships and technology (if his effects are that wide reaching) by having the Kelvin with a closer TOS matching bridge (which is what the console behind Abrams resembles) and then seeing the new whiter bridge of the Enterprise?

If this is indeed a shot from the Kelvin Bridge set, as looks likely from this matching the lighting from the shot of the alien officer, then the darkness of the Kelvin provides a very nice contrast with the Enterprise Bridge.
