Default Deflector dish!

Tonight was my third viewing, and I noticed something I missed the first 2 viewings and that I havn't seen mentioned here...the new deflector dish...

In the closing scene, as the Enterprise and approaching the camera and as Spock Prime begins the classic lines, there are 5 (maybe 6) panels that slide away from the center...like blast panels or something. Kinda like there's more components inside the dish that are protected but these panels.... It's a fast shot, but look for this on your next viewing!

the deflector dish only does that when the Enterprise is ready for warp. a new feature JJ and crew put in. i think it's pretty cool.

Yes, I noticed that on my second viewing. Pretty nifty I thought.

Perhaps that's where they keep the modified tachyon pulse?? I'll have to look this weekend.

I assume few people have noticed, or this would have been a huge issue (change) a month ago... Seems wierd to me, the way it opens. It's a flower...

that is the main deflector dish on the Enterprise. on this pic that you have provided the deflector (as shown above) is only when the enterprise is on impluse power or orbiting a planet, however when the enterprise is at warp, the middle of the deflector dish seems to expand or the middle seems to open up more becuase of threat of space debris or just navagation in warp drive.

J.J. and his crack team desired more moving parts on their Enterprise. Don't be surprised to see more of this in Trek XII.
