The warp core pictured in the film is actually Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's National Ignition Facility (NIF), the world's largest and most energetic laser system. Real-life scientists are attempting to create nuclear fusion. In 2012, with the approval of the Department of Energy, NIF was utilized for the first time as a film set during a normal maintenance cycle for the facility. All additive costs were completely reimbursed by the film company so as to have no impact on NIF's experimental plan. See more »
When the Vengeance first drops out of warp in front of the Enterprise, a set of panels partially close over the main deflector dish (the blue circle of lights on the bottom front of the ship). However, in the next shot from the Enterprise viewscreen, the deflector dish is completely exposed again. See more »
The previous Star Trek movie is a tough one to beat. It was close to perfection (lens flares and all). So this movie had a tough up-hill battle ahead of it. I am happy to report that the writing, direction, cinematography and acting were all at least as good as the last one.
Cumberbatch is brilliant. I won't divulge any spoilers, but I will say that the throw back to the earlier movies is very very clever and well executed. It is hard to find fault with this movie, particularly as it had very big shoes to fill. But it does so brilliant and effortlessly. The added depth we see in the characters of Kirk and Spock is icing on an already delicious cake!
Well done JJ, producers, actors, writers and musicians. This is one of the very few movies I have ever given full marks, and deservedly so.
