Star Trek Production Photos 2009 Paramount Pictures
This first exclusive photo shows the starship USS Kelvin in flight. Kurtzman and Orci couldn't answer if the ship predates the Enterprise or if any characters we already know are aboard. They did say that it was very important to them that the ship designs did not "stray too far" from those in the original show. Orci called the spaceships from the series "lovely works of art," and they agreed that completely reworking the look without retaining the classic style would be an "affront to the fans."
