A pet peeve re "official": who's "officiating" or what "office" makes this "official"? For Pete's sake, the word has a meaning...
- I don't think there is a previously shot version of the Klingons' destruction other than the pyrotechnic tests seen in some of the behind the scenes stuff.
- Also re the Klingons, everything in the film was shot in widescreen, not "possibly".
- By various accounts the spacewalk/memory wall was largely shot, but scrapped.
