No, they deepened the shadows and gave it more shine. Probably to make it look more realistic now that the energy beam is a light source.

What do you mean 'no'? The nacelles are pink in the original shot. I noticed the more realistic lighting.

Agreed. I think the ship looks like an artist rendition of the ship one might also find on deviantart for example.

It certainly looks less real, correct lighting or not.

Its probably because we are so used to the way E-D looks in TNG. Flawed or not.

They look the same shade of red both before and after to me. :?

I have to agree, the collectors look pretty much the same to me.

You think so? I don't know..maybe....but to me one looks clearly like a computer generated picture (not even a particularily good one, mind you, there are far better ones to find on the net from casual artists).

It's just to detailed and perfect to look real to me......idk, the only thing I would change is the enviroment (planets, stars etc.) and special effects, since I highly doubt they have enough of a budget to make the SHIP look more real than a 6 foot model.

Well from what I understand there are no new CGI shots of the E-D, so what you are seeing is the actual model.

Agreed, although in this case I would have corrected the beam location as they did except not to the phaser strip, maybe to the deflector. What i really dont like is the ship itself.

According to something I read -- If I can track it down I will -- the script has Picard order "main phasers" fire the energy beam, so they corrected it, erm, correctly...

I haven't looked at the script but it's on an analysis of the Encounter at Farpoint sampler on Ex Astris Scientia -- -and Bernd is usually pretty accurate.

They used a CGI version of the ship in the scene with the energy beam.
I am tempted to render an image of that shot for the fun of it because i think this could look much better.
