Do we know, for a fact, that the same people doing the FX for the movie did the trailer? Or could this trailer have been "subcontracted?" Happens all the time in other fields... and we see plenty of FX houses doing work even on a single film. So is it possible that what we saw there is "studio A's" take on a sequence which will never even appear on-film, while "studio B" is doing the stuff which we'll see on-screen?
In the past, lower-end facilities have knocked out fx for trek TNG trailers, but I don't think that was the case here. ILM does farm out overflow or model work, but this doesn't qualify as either. Plus the shots in the middle of the trailer look good, now that I have seem them in higher quality (though I still don't like the last shot that rises up to show the E, way too painterly for my taste.)
