Entertainment Weekly‘s PopWatch Blog has the first look at the U.S.S. Enterprise from J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek.
Yes, it looks a lot like the ship we’ve seen for the past four decades but, as Abrams says, “If you’re going to do Star Trek there are many things you cannot change.”
“The Enterprise is a visual touchstone for so many people,” he tells PopWatch. “So if you’re going to do the Enterprise, it better look like the Enterprise, because otherwise, what are you doing?”
Star Trek opens in theaters on May 8. The first trailer debuts this weekend with Quantum of Solace, and on Monday at the official website.
