That's the Matt Yuricich Vulcan, the one that SHOULD have been in the film. (STARLOG published a shot of him working on this with the approved smaller concept version of the shot next to him.)
Here it is.



And here is a composite (maybe a test):

BTW I saw the featurette days ago then lost it on youtube, it's not an EASY find to make.
This is why it is safely stored on my Trek Hard Disk since I first saw it!

Unlike the theatrical AND the DE, that image lives up to the "hot as Vulcan" line for me.

I kind of wonder if the really awful side profile view of the saucer during the wingwalk at the end of the movie was painted by the same bozo who wrecked this thing, because it is hard for me to believe Yuricich could have done that one either.

OK, I like pictures galleries...








Well, they are not that bad...

Re: STTMP vignette from the 1970s

That last one you posted looked incredibly good in the cinema, but once dvd and BR came along, the transfers made it look bad (a problem with a lot of VFX -- they are printed one way for theatrical, hence the 'garbage matte' boxes all over the place in 2010, for example.) The one that was terrible in the theater and just as bad now is the shot after that one, where you see the side profile of the dish (which looks to be smaller than a basketball court all of a sudden) that you can practically see brushstrokes and the lettering looks bad.

Ah, this one:


Well, there IS a size issue:

Re: STTMP vignette from the 1970s

That was neat! I could watch hours of that stuff. I like going behind the scenes, especially when it comes to movies that are ingrained in my psyche after so many years. TMP came out a little over three months before I was born, but by the time Star Trek IV rolled around, I was hooked for life. So seeing all of these things going on while I was too young to really notice, that kind of helps me recapture a bit of that childhood in a different way. Thanks for posting that video, RAMA.

Re: STTMP vignette from the 1970s

Wow - I wish I'd seen that a year ago - some awesome shots of zaranites and arcturians that I could have used in my youtube comic. I've saved over 100 screenshots so I'll definitely be using some in story three.

Yes she was. Felt so sorry for her watching her get her head shaved.
That guy shaving her hair did that about as gently as I've ever seen. I like to believe he was trying to be delicate for her sake.

Here's a similar scene from THX-1138.

The lower one is the same image as seen at the bottom of the photo of Yuricich and his painting. It's a matte concept, which were usually painted onto a photograph of the live-action plate.

You are right! I didn't notice that. It can be seen even better in this other picture.

Re: STTMP vignette from the 1970s

Why haven't they produced a widely available picture of that shot of the Rec Deck scene to the the left in that last photo? It looks amazing! A high definition rendering would be stellar too.

I have this (tighter) image as an 8x10 publicity still, from a set of eight shots (not the bigger lobby cards) - one of those photo sets sent to the media, with the title and details printed along the bottom:


Whole crew, TMP by Therin of Andor, on Flickr

I added the ruler myself, to help me plot the aliens and fan extras for a blog entry:

What's great about that angle is you can clearly see the nacelle strut through the lower windows.

Yeah it's cool. There are also some hi-res screenshots on Trekcore but I've never seen a shot that goes as high or as wide as the one in the pic here. I love the concept art too. Visually, the Enterprise shots and interior in TMP were things of beauty and they dismantled that Rec Deck after that one day's shooting. That wide angle pic is the only one I've seen that really does the set justice.
