Re: Early CGI test footage of the E-D

Don't know if it was pre-Probert or concurrent with, but Syd Mead mentioned (I think this was in a STAR TREK THE MAG interview, possibly the TMP-DE issue) being approached to design the new Ent for TNG early on. Pretty sure this was while they were considering doing the exteriors via CG (Peter Lauritson mentioned CG ship tests in CINEFEX 37 - maybe this was part of that?)

If you look at THE LAST STARFIGHTER, there are a few shots of the Gunstar that look pretty damn amazing with respect to dynamic range lighting and shadows. If they'd had another month or six weeks, supposedly they'd've been able to put motion blur into everything, and IMO that might have changed history in the way they'd hoped to do.

Also, check out the E-A unboxing video. Wow!

Yeah, just looking at that screencap and the short clip on amazed me - I had no idea they could get that high qulaity back in the day.
What clip on Star Trek dot com? I can't find it.
Here you go.
That clip is a test for the Director's Edition of TMP.

Oh, I've seen that one. As Tosk said, it's from the Director's Edition of The Motion Picture, not from the TNG tests.
