JJ Abrams' Enterprise Feels Fully Functional

Harry Knowles got the chance to see some early footage from JJ Abrams' Star Trek. The few short clips he saw were early edits without proper cg or color timing. The one bit I found particularly interesting is the first description of the bridge of the USS Enterprise:

"For the first time in the history of Star Trek, [the bridge] looked amazingly functional. It echoes that classic Trek look – but imagine if you handed that design to the folks at APPLE and said... Make it really work. I instantly believed in the functionality of everything. That's hard to quantify, but it is true. Remember when you saw the war room underground on Hoth in EMPIRE STRIKES BACK? How it just felt functional – that's what this looked. And it looked Star Trek, without looking as cheap as Star Trek. It was a tech-fetishists wet dream."
