GEN was the first Trek film to use CGI, that I'm aware of, but it was only for a few seconds (when it's firing the deflector dish)
That is not quite correct.

All the shots of the Enterprise-B where there is interactive light with the Nexus-ribbon are CG. Basically everything after leaving the drydock and before the final shot of the hull-damage on the added pieces. (The warp-shot doesn't count, as this is stock-footage from TUC)

And there were a few CG-shots of the E-D

If they did CG for 1701-B, why the hell did they modify the Excelsior model, then ? They could've done the rest in CGI, too.

Not in 1994 for those kinds of beauty-shots.

Maybe. Anyway, now that I know it's CG, I can tell fromt he screenshots that the windows on the edge of the saucer section aren't very convincing.

Yes, they are simply mapped on the surface.
But it's not really noticeable in all that flickering light and motion.
