I will never watch this move as just like the Star Wars prequals it is too far removed from the original spirit of Star Trek. The tech also looks far too advanced and even Enterprise had this issue. The SW prequals made this a serious issue. Did the universal tech devolve that much after the Empire took over (including their own)? Alternate timeline/universe or not everything in Reboot (from what I've seen) looks far too advanced. But in true JJ form he needs the shinies and over-the-top explosions to disguise what generally amounts to terrible writing and directing. The gaping plot holes and myriad of issues in this game are bad enough but at least it's set in the future not the past.

It was enough of a stretch bringing in the NX-01 "replica."

And as far as rights go, the company that has the IP rights that could be used in a game also has to want to sell or license those rights. And I'm sure it would be for a price Cryptic or PW couldn't afford at this point if they're still trying to get F2P to remain viable by adding original content and game fixes.
Well, we have mirror universe incursions. Why not Abramsverse? It's feasible in Star Trek that the two timelines could converge again.

And why was the NX-01 such a stretch? I loved that show and that ship..... They need more NX content.

I think them making a replica of a centuries old ship was the stretch part...

Additional Irony: Roddenberry first pitched Trek to CBS, who rejected it because they already had "Lost in Space".

I would like to see those two bridge layouts become available. And I really hope they use something other than a brewery or waste processing plant for the engineering section in the upcoming movie.
Krung's BoP in "Voyage Home" had some sizing issues also. I wouldn't mind seeing an "older ship" pack in the C-store, with the Constellation class, and the single nacelle "destroyers" from StarFleet Battles, I'd buy it. Not sure how you'd work 300 year old ships flying around storywise, however.

The tech in 2012 looks more advanced than in Star Trek. They're stuck between a rock and a hard place visually because we've surpassed the visual design they had back in the 60s and 80s but they need to make things look futuristic.

I'd like to fly Spock's jellyfish around. Classify it as a shuttle so I can hang out with the escorts in the shuttle event.

I always imagined the TOS bridge redone with the panels from Enterprise. Kinda sacriledge I know, and should definitely have the choice. But I think if they were making TOS today, it would look more like Enterprise.

Well, people today make and sail replicas of 18th/19th century sailing ships, though no navy would seriously consider sending one into real combat outside of war games or historical reenactments.

I will try to sum up the general respose I see to similar questions throughout the past 2 years. Please forgive if I do it in a way that is not good enough:

NO!

The USS Constitution is still considered to be in "active" service. Though it is used for training purposes only. I could see Starfleet using an NX for brown water training missions (intra-solar system only).
