Check This Out: J.J. Abrams' Slusho Enterprise Revealed!
One of the many off-the-wall marketing ideas that Paramount came up with for the new Star Trek was to have various artists paint models of the USS Enterprise in whatever quirky style they wanted. I've seen these models in movie theaters in Los Angeles, on display at ShoWest, and everywhere else Star Trek has been marketing, but Paramount has only now launched a full gallery of all of the models online right here. One of the ships hidden in the gallery is painted with the Slusho logo (listed as Enterprise #12 in the gallery), as done by Amy Vatanakul, an "artist and animator working at Bad Robot Productions." Check it out!
My personal favorite is actually the Enterprise #21 model, in the lower left corner, as that ship just looks frickin' badass with the alien creature being integrated into it. I'd really like to buy that one, please!
There are ships designed by Robert Rodriguez (#4) and Jim Lee (#23), so be sure to check out the full gallery of models. Too bad I can't bid on these, as I might actually shell out some good cash for one of them.

Star Trek is directed by J.J. Abrams, of "Lost", "Alias", and Mission: Impossible III previously. The screenplay was written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, of The Island, Mission: Impossible III, Transformers, and the upcoming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. This is the 11th movie in the Star Trek universe, following most recently Star Trek: Nemesis in 2002. The original "Star Trek" TV series first aired in 1966. Paramount will debut Star Trek in theaters everywhere on May 8th this summer!
