Looks like the opening shot of the Enterprise over Earth is Tobias Richter's 3D mesh. This is probably one of those elements that was moved down the line into another episode's collection.
Noticed that too, pretty good replacement CG shot as well. Though I do hope the film element turns up in the future, quite like that pass of the 4 footer.
The only small complaint I still have with this two-parter.... are those goofy looking rainbow-colored phaser beams they constantly use on the Borg. I get that they had to look modified, but couldn't they have come up with something that looked a bit... cooler?
If you look at the shot of the saucer section firing at 1.15 in the trailer the phasers are fluctuating in colour. I thought it might just be an effect on the Borg viewscreen but the photons fired from the stardrive section are all orange.
