Gah....I'm having a sealant leak over here lol

Ok...you are definitely correct Commodore..I did not take that into consideration. Kudos.

Can anyone else see, besides the TMP 1701, other Enterprises' in the design? If so, please point them out and compare, if you all don't' mind

If you want to go with whacky in-universe explanations, you have all sorts of stuff you could throw out there to explain different/better Starfleet technology.

The interference in Earth science by the TOS crew in ST:IV
The interference in Earth history by the TNG crew in FC
The interference in Earth history by (sigh) the VOY crew

Hell, after the events of First Contact, the Vulcans could have given the people of Earth a kick in the *** with some science/engineering advice to better prepare them, considering how devastating the Borg invasion of a planet nearby Vulcan could be.

If people are going to hate the changes, a la Starbase, they'll hate the changes. They'll attempt to rationalize their dislike of whatever asthetics using contrived, in-universe BS. There's no way to explain it to them

This may sound like a dumb question, but here it is anyway. How did Spock know where to go to find a young Jim Kirk if this time line was a different one that he was in?

Where no tedious ungrateful pedant has gone before. (Actually where lots of tedious ungrateful pedants have gone before, over and over again)

DING! Why don't you wait and see the film instead of assuming there's no answer? The writers are smart people - maybe they thought of it. DING!

p.s. I like the DING. It gives my post gravitas!

Actually, from what we've seen from the trailers released so far, it seems as if it's young Jim Kirk that finds older Spock...
possible spoiler

I agree with all statements.

I like the new Enterprise as it looks a lot like TMP ship in a lot of ways, which is a good thing.

As far as movies go, yes, the most recognizable Enterprise is the version seen in the original movies. So I guess Abarams and Co. went there as a starting point and made their changes.

Common sense would kind of dictate this will be explained.
