Here is an early publicity shot shortly after completion of the model for TSFS:

Thanks, I was looking for this one but unfortunately I misplaced my ST III trading cards.

What I'm trying to say is I was looking for stern shots of the VFX model from the ST III (to determine whether that part had undergone alterations or not).
Looks like this is the only one we have, but am I imagining things or does the structure inside look like the propeller blade of a submarine?

Then that's it, some kind of futuristic "caterpillar drive" as this definitely carries allusions concerning propulsion (and I don't have to feel bad still thinking like a kid ).
