So far I can't find a link to such an article online anywhere. Archer, do you even remember when you read this, if not where? How recently, I mean? Thanks.

We have a major screw up here.
AND YES...we can theorize endlessly that the bridge could have been changed but I really really hate having to that.

I couldn't agree with you more on this. The bridge shouldn't be so different that we can't recognize it. This kind of thing is really not conducive to Paramount ending up with the kind of film they say they are trying to make. I think their hearts are in the right place, but their vision seems to be a bit skewed and their memories could use some ginko biloba.

Edit: I don't mind a little change to the bridge, maybe some different colors, but a total re-design is balmy. Pike's bridge wasn't that different from Kirk's, minus a few view screens on metal bendy-stalks.

It seems like I read it on one of the big Trek Movie sites, like TrekMovieWeb or something like that, but I can't remember which one. I KNOW for a fact that I actually read it, if you want I can go check again. You all probably know how frustrating it is when you can't seem to find something that you know exists.

Yeah, I read it too. It was an interview with someone working on the film, they said that although Paramount insisted the Enterprise look the same on the outside, that they left them some leeway with the interior and that they changed it quite a bit. Their excuse for this was that Star Fleet liked to re-decorate a lot.

Okay, guys, to clear things up, I got some facts wrong. Here's the links to what really is going on regarding set design for Star Trek XI.

Interview with Dawn Brown, set designer:

And James Cawley's responses:

Well, their comments are so imprecise (deliberately so) that I can't really get worked up about them.

I've got to tone down these expectations.
I think we all do. We think this is gonna be TREK
but it's not. It's going to be Abrams version of Trek. It's not going to look the same.

If I accept this I can accept the ship looking different the different actors and the different sets too. It's the only way to approach the movie openly...that this is not what we've known for some 40 years.

That is true, Abrams will be doing Trek through his vision, although it also seems that since he is a fan of the series will will also try to do his best and pay respect to the series.

I wouldn't count on it too much. I think he's trying to go for a differnt look but the same feel. Does that make any sense?

I think that's exactly what everyone's 'cryptic' quotes so far seem to indicate, well said. Familiar, much of what fans enjoy most, but standing on its own as well.
