Can you provide a review of the contents of both the book and the CD? I'm curious as to why they went the route of recreating everything in CG rather than use the source images used in the interactive technical manual (at least in part).
I think the problem is those images were only at a 640X480 resolution, and wouldn't be quite the size or HD quality we're used to now.
Not to mention licensing. Simon & Schuster probably still have copyright on the old stuff.
My question stemmed from the fact that it would make sense that CBS (or possibly Paramount) would still own the rights to the original photographs of the sets that were used to composite into the panoramas and also the original photographs (assuming they were saved, which it makes sense that they would be) would have a much higher resolution than the scaled down files released on the Tech Manual.
