Yes, it looks most unusual. But so do the glossy reflections that make the hull look like it's made of plastic and you wonder where the light comes from (in contrast the illumination of the original shot is diffuse - made me never wonder about the light source and contributed to the illusion of just being there).

Sometimes "less" actually yields "more" but try telling this to the CGI artists.
