That still looks CGI, because it is. CGI will never look as filmic as model work. It looked like CGI on the DVD as well. To say otherwise is a bit silly. With digital techniques, they could make the CGI look more like film, but I will always see the difference.

The most important thing is that the improvement in quality is staggering. And we should all be thankful that these companies saved their files.
Yeah. The point isn't how well that particular shot looks, the point is just that there is a lot more detail to the FX the producers of an HD DS9 have to work with than was known before. That's a good thing in and of itself.
