Heh. Not bad.
Thought so too. The parking break/exterior inertial dampener thing was redundant as two different explanations.
plus if you dampen inertia it makes it easier for the ship to move….big duh.
@saquist Actually dampening inertia keeps the occupant from being crushed by the back wall when the ship is travelling just under the speed of light. Basically it allows the crew to travel with the ship instead of being crushed by the G-forces. When going to warp the dampeners are no longer needed because the ship is not moving through normal space. But you’re close enough. Whether you’re traveling at warp or sub-light the dampeners would be on to protect the lives in the ship.
@Trekfreek Yes, inertia as a property of matter inhibits motion or a change of direction. Dampening means it’s easier to turn, easier to accelerate. Star Trek is very silly on this idea though…the description of subspace fields and warp fields are similar to IDF. Anytime you lighten your mass shadow or gravitational field you’ll also have less inertia.
@saquist Exactly. In Gene Rodenberry’s Star Trek inertia dampeners were needed because of Einstein’s theory of E=mc2. The faster you go the greater the mass you become. But with warp drive you are warping Space time, doing so reduces your mass allowing you to travel light years in minutes without going faster than light. Gene Rodenberry’s Star Trek had real scientific theories in it; this new one is based on Bugs Bunny science.
Yeah that’s true but it was a good movie as Fluff movies go. It got people to theatre to spend money. Not bad. Not Great, not incredible
@saquist You must think that fluff movies are movies like Titanic, Godzilla vs. King Kong, Lenard Part 6, and Plan 9 from Outer Space; if so than you’re right. However, think of fluff movies are movies like Benji (1974) and Old Yeller (1958); corny movies for the whole family but still have no plot holes or unbelievable out comes.
This movie is a trash. In the truest sense of the word.
Don’t be so hard on Sulu. If he hadn’t made The Lady fashionably late,the Universe would’ve been ROYALLY screwed.
@SR71ABCD Oh no…. do you know what the Firewire is???
Star Wars is Rock in Roll, Star Trek is Classic Music… They Mixed Bouth and creat a New Universe…. a STAR TREK METAAAAAAAAAL NEW UNIVERSE HAHAHAHAH
JJ Abrams should have done the Star wars prequels.
The alcubierre drive is actually a viable design for superluminary travel. The major problems faced now are cost and the sheer computing power required to intermix a hydrogen/exotic matter reaction safely, and the massive calculations needed to generate a stable “bubble” around a capable vessel, and the calculations to destabilize the bubble.
In the alcubierre theory, inertial dampers wouldn’t be required because the ship itself is not exceeding the speed of light, it is sitting in a patch of normal space, with an expanding wave behind it and a contracting troth infront…sorta like a slinky…..
Plus none of the warp jumps would be accurate nonetheless. A ship entering a warp bubble would simply be a, if anything, a distorted image as the bubble forms…no forward motion. Also the “deflector shield” would not be necessary. In a warp bubble any outside space is bent around the ship…the defense I see for a real vessel would be an electromagnetic grid able to reverse polarity and repel metallic objects.
When it is outside the protection of the bubble.
Also the view from the helm here would be fairly accurate…visible objects would The view from the helm here would be pretty accurate…visible objects would appear to come towards you,but would then follow a curved path on the sides and top, the bottom would have a drop off point, ….
28 people forgot to take the parking break off.
Is the parking brake on? Good one! xD
… needs more lens flare.
@chaosTUBEgmail nero is not from the futur well he is but not from this universes future his ship had borg tecnology as well he and ambasador spock tried to save romulus in the prime universe but spock arrived too late spock jetesoned the red matter at the super nova he and nero were pulled in to the alternate universe nero waited for spock instead he waited 25 years because that is howlong it was before spock arrived
The external initial dampener? That’s the freaking parking break of spaceships!
@SR71ABCD HD screen plus HD camcorder does not equal HD video.
I know you meant well, but next time please upload an original video file and not a camcorder, boot leg copy. The audio track in this copy sucked! And so did the video quality!
