First full look at the new Enterprise

Star Trek's latest take on the ship is unveiled

The first full of shot of the USS Enterprise is JJ Abrams’ new take on Star Trek has been revealed.

Yesterday, Total Film’s Sam blogged about seeing the footage from the flick.

Now you can see the USS Enterprise, the starship made famous in the series as she appears in the film in our gallery.

Iconic look

And, as the first teaser trailer suggested, the shape of the vessel has been left largely as it was, albeit with some modernising touches and different nacelles.

"If you're going to do Star Trek there are many things you cannot change, Abrams tells  EW. "The Enterprise is a visual touchstone for so many people. So if you're going to do the Enterprise, it better look like the Enterprise, because otherwise, what are you doing?"

It just serves to make us more certain that JJ Abrams has nailed Star Trek. Now we can look forward to the new trailer, which should be online at the weekend.

      Looks wicked Classic with a modern spin. I hear that the half hour of footage that's been shown is good stuff too. This is a film to look forward to.

      It's the interstellar equivalent of a mullet- looks alright at the front, s**t at the back. What's with those oversized engine-things? Is this from a Galaxy Quest sequel? The Enterprise in First Contact is way cooler.

      Empire Online did the same article but with far less style and class. Plus they smell faintly of chips.
