This is a silly argument...CGI bad because they have to be lit to be seen on screen?

A good CGI model can look as detailed as the real thing, and the dynamics of movement from CGI work makes the medium superior to motion control. ST 09s ships are by far the best, most solid and realistic ships I have ever seen in space FX.

Then you need to see more movies.

Just based on the trailer, that stuff in your trekflick doesn't begin to compare with SOLARIS ship CG, or any number of miniature-based shows ranging from SPACE COWBOYS to EVENT HORIZON or 2001, 2010 ... hell, I don't need to give you the list.
I've seen them all...and several of those don't have CGI btw...but the ST 09 movie surpasses any CGI ships ever, including the previous best, Solaris.
