Re: Tomorrow: 20 Years Ago

I don't recognize the shot from any early Season 1 DS9 episode, so yeah it's almost certainly an f/x recycle from TNG to pad out the trailer. Even in the theatrical trailer to Generations about two years later Paramount reused TNG clips to fill gaps left by the film's then-incomplete visual effects.

Paramount loves to cut corners where it can. Can't say I blame them, though there are times when it's painfully obvious and even a little laughable. The Starship Bozeman emerging from the temporal rift in Generations....really?
On Halloween Night the Great Temporal Pumpkin rises out of his chroniton patch and flies through space with his bag of new timelines for all the children.
