The shot was created by CBS-D for "The Inner Light".
And it looked pretty fake. The improved lighting seen in season 4 makes it appear much more real.

However, the telltale sign that it's CGI is still there in that it is perfectly sharp and defined when it's far away from the camera. The real model appears much softer farther away.
To me it was the blue glow of the warp engines that was the tell that it was CGI

The bussard collectors looked odd to me and gave it away that it was CGI.
