A New Vision
– J.J. Abrams’ vision was not only to create a Star Trek that was a bigger, more action-packed spectacle but also to “make that spectacle feel real.” Every aspect of production – from unique locations to the use of classic Hollywood camera tricks – was guided by this overall objective.

Starships – Abrams and production designer Scott Chambliss were careful to pay tribute to the design of the original Enterprise, but they also wanted to make it “futuristic and cool” for a modern audience.
