For the Directors Edition of Star Trek: The motion Picture, director Robert Wise was able to, atlast, complete the film that was originally released in 1979.
To help create this Foundation Imaging was charged with creating and completing many visual effects shots and scenes. A version highly detailed computer model of the USS Enperprise was required. Starting with two CGI models provided by VFX Supervisor Daren Dochterman and Jose Perez, I was responsable with creating the Primary Hull (Saucer), the Bridge and Warp Naceles (Engines). Helped by having unlimited access to the original filming miniature, the finished model replicates the look and details of the filmed version to blends the new elements and shots seemlessly into the film.
