Yay! You did the asteroid space dock! It was perfect!
Indeed. That, and the Archer mention were two nice shout-outs to Enterprise (the series). ROCK ON!
Oooh, the asteroid spacedock pre-dates Star Trek: Enterprise by quite a bit! It was part of the original Ralph McQuarrie concept artwork produced back before Paramount decided to go with Phase II. Here's a link that shares some of that artwork and discusses early ideas for the cancelled first film.
The article is interesting enough but not entirely accurate. The film and its production art was discussed in some depth in this old thread "Planet of the Titans Revisited" <link>.

Well done. For a 9 minute clip, it engrossed me FAR more than I would have expected.
Very, VERY well done.

It's Longfellow. Though I got a word wrong in it. My fault and I didn't notice until just now. :-/

Not to mention my favorite Trek starship ever, the movie Enterprise with the cool new nacelles. Life am good.

It's not the movie Enterprise. It's the TOS Enterprise with Jefferies-designed Phase II nacelles and some visible airlocks and other details.

Re: Phase II "Going Boldly" (new vignette)

Having rewatched it a bit, I probably could have done without the TWOK music and the nearly-shot-for-shot recreation of the ship exit from the end of TMP. Your mileage may vary of course.

I did like how they threw in a literal mention of "Phase Two," and in a perfectly acceptable, diagetic and non fanwanky way.

Exactly! They basically tried to combine the best aspects of both designs.

Both the TOS ship and Jefferies's Phase II version? Yep.

As far as the ST:TMP Enterprise is concerned, I don't see a single element from it incorporated into this version. I may be missing something.

I noticed that the exterior bridge dome still has the one turbolift shaft, which is consistent with the interior set.
