If anyone is a member of the STAR TREK THE MOTION PICTURE APPRECIATION SOCIETY on Facebook, check their feed NOW. Someone posted a video that appears to be a VHS demo real from one of the effects companies that worked on the film, and it features several shots of the opening Klingon battle that I have never seen before. Some examples. The shot fo the Klingon Cruiser's torpedo launcher lighting up continues onward until the ship almost leaves the frame. You can clearly make out the Klingon Insignia underneath the ship! The shot showing the Klingon ship firing it's first torpedo up close is much longer and we see it fire two whole shots (Some of this shot was used in the publicity material). An entirely new shot showing two Klingon Cruisers firing torpedoes at the Cloud. An alternate shot of the torpedoes approaching the cloud that now features two rows of Torpedoes instead of one. If you look closely, you can see the torpedoes closest to the Cloud disappear! A new underneath shot of a Klingon Cruiser (Similar to the in the finished film) being hit with V'Ger's plasma bolt head on. This is clearly meant to be the Klingon ship that we didn't get to see vaporized. The Epsilon 9 footage goes a bit further showing the station coming even closer to the camera (Even for VHS quality, it looks really nice) A much later cut away from the shot of the second Klingon Cruiser getting hit by the plasma bolt. A few more frames to the Klingon Bridge being engulfed by the plasma bolt. A close-up shot of the Klingon warp nacelle being engulfed by the plasma bolt. This one is very interesting because as the plasma wave makes it's way through the cruiser, you can see that they swap out the nacelle portion of the model with one that's partially gone! The effects team actually had model shots showing the plasma wave eating away at the ships! I can't find this video anywhere on youtube but it IS in that facebook group!
