With that out of the way, here's a couple shots of the Enterprise.

A nice shot from EaF:
Beautiful. There's my new wallpaper.

And the CG flyby from the Inner Light toward the end of the shot. I'm pretty sure this is further over to the right than the original.
Ugh, not good. There's my new toilet paper.
The CG replacement is certainly detailed, and perhaps even accurate, but there is a definite 'plastic/unreal' quality to it that just doesn't hold a candle to the photograph seen above.

I'll admit I haven't seen the shot in motion, but this still (and the earlier one released with the stars 'color-banding') have not impressed me. Perhaps it has to do with the lighting more than the model. I appreciate that the CG model follows the lines of the original 6-foot model, but I hope that the quality doesn't take me out of the story as many CGI Enterprise shots did for me in TOS-R
