It bums me out all the more that the D had to bite the bullet in the film. Those sets and the 6-footer looked amazing.
I still say blow up the ship for wow factor, but undo it with the Nexus. Best of both worlds.
(Say, that's a catchy title...)
I thought the Enterprise-D looked beautiful too including the new lighting on the sets, surely they could've just changed the sets for First Contact? Looking at First Contact, I could never really see it being filmed on TV sets.
