previous star trek sets are cheap and recycled ,like insurrection's (remember that blue wall behind ru'afo?)

star wars sets are pieces of art

So this movie will end in a cliff hanger.
They'll bring the real Kirk in on the third movie?

Gotta go with Jtrek on this one.

A lot of Trek sets are indeed recycled. (Often with great genius in their implementation...but the sharp eye can often spot it.)

But, it's a matter of personal preference. Not really sure how one can make the other better.

Star Wars sets are made out of the same things Star Trek sets are made out of.

So how do Star Wars like sets make Star Trek better?

i am not saying star trek sets luck aesthetics (sorry if i mispelled it), they are just oftenly used...star wars or star wars like if u prefer sets guarantee a level of scale like anything before on trek,i fail to see the logic not to use them

So to put it in simpler terms, you agree with JJ apparent philosophy that "bigger is better."

Bigger bridge...

Bigger transporter room...

Bigger, wider corridors...

Bigger warp engines...

Not that it genuinely improves anything, it's just "better."
