ILM refurbished and used the 6 foot model for the physical shots of the Enterprise D, the 4 footer was even used at one point. John Knoll built a CG model that I believe was only used for when the ship went to warp.
Yes, I think the CG Enterprise was used for the two warp entry shots, but I didn't know the 4-footer was used. Do you know what shot?
Sure, its this one
Thanks! It looks good in that shot, dark and far enough away that all the "detail" is lost! It seems strange to use it for that one shot, surely ILM had a stage big enough to film the 6-footer for that. I wonder if they used it to justify the expense of refurbishing it.
