"There she is! THERE she IS!"

The guys at CBS Digital have crafted a new Enterprise model, and more importantly have done some serious-ass work on figuring out artistic lighting design for model shots. I now officially withdraw any complaints I might've made in my three posts on the topic (1, 2, 3).

Take a look at the shots from "The Trouble with Tribbles"[TOR] . . . damn that's a fine ship. For comparison, I'm including some similar shots from other remastered episodes . . . if you have to ask which is which you're frakking blind.

  1. I knew that shot of the Enterprise leaving K-7 was evocative of some movie shots, and I finally figured it out:

    The lighting and orientation are very close, but I swear the TOR shot looks better. This shot is also pretty close in some ways:

    . . . but though it has the station in the background it was the other shot I was thinking of.

  4. It looks like the right engine on the top shot is on a bad angle...

    Just like the plastic model that you used to be able to buy decades ago - one engine always twisted to the wrong angle...

  6. I must admit that looks nice.

    Not that I couldn't live with the oh-so-campy effects of the original series, but this does look nice :)
