    Sorry if this was discussed before and I missed it, but what does "Production used" means for those CGI models? Because I see a few that were not used in any TV or movie production there, like the CG Centaur, the Foundation Imaging Sovereign-Class model (which they literally did in their free time and not under contract for anything), the USS Musk (yuck) Oberth, or the Constellation renders by Rob Bonchune.

    Also, Eaglemoss' 3D model for the Steamrunner was used for one of the Confederacy's ships in Picard, so I guess the images of said model on Meshweaver's site should also be added? :)

    Those are from Rob Bonchune's artstation, he's been rendering out CG assets from Voyager/Enterprise/Post-Enterprise-PreDisco era official star trek productions.So either screen used in the afore mentioned series, or used in officially licensed media after those series ended.
    The foundation E was used in Nemesis for a few shots, The Constellation was from TNG-R's "Peak Performance", the Oberth was used for Star Trek Borg Invasion 4D at Vegas.

    I know where they're from, I literally mentioned it on my post. :p

    The Foundation E (actually from Digital Muse, my mistake) was built by David Lombardi in his free time in an attempt to show Paramount they could tackle the FX work in Insurrection, a bid Digital Muse eventually lost to ILM. So the model was never used, it just remained in their archives which is why it later resurfaced on Doug Drexler's blog. It was certainly never used on Nemesis, as the ship was redesigned so it wouldn't match.

    The Constellation model is NOT the one used on Peak Performance. Leaving aside the fact that it's clearly visually different, I confirmed it with Rob myself on an ArtStation comment.

    I was under the impression that the idea was to add only those CGI assets which were used on the show/movies, because if that's not the case, then why not add all the Eaglemoss renders from Meshweaver, rather than just a few? It's an official publication after all. Hence my original question. :)

    Sidebar question: where's the best section to discuss how to get that magazine revived as a continuing publication?

    Probably Sci Fi & Fantasy, I would think, considering it covered all those genres (along with horror VFX and others).
