"Young minds, fresh ideas. Be tolerant"- Admiral Kirk After having some time to look at the new beauty shot, I am becoming more interested in seeing what these new effects will look like. And also, I have a recollection of Gene Roddenberry commenting at the time of Star Trek The Motion Picture that the film will have the budget and means to do things he couldn't do in the series. In the series, he was limited to plywood and foam sets. With the film, he's got the means to build the sets and models the way he would have liked to. So I would think that if he were here today, he'd be open to this. Though we still have to see the final product. On a Trek forum, there was a side by side image like the ones above CGI next to live action. The difference is still a bit jarring. CGI is so clean and sharp and the live action film is a bit soft from the film grain.
