Few great pictures of the Enterprise in Drydock from STMP!I never tire of shots of the space dock. Still the best space dock in all the films. The only one close was the one holding Enterprise B in the opening of Generations(and Knoll was heavily inspired by Trumbull's fx from TMP for that film, even down to the look of the photon torpedoes.

Never knew the drydock was so red as per those photos it always looked a pink washed out red & brown on the big screen & home video. I am old enough to have seen STMP on the big screen back in 1980 when it first came out to this day there has not been a better or more awe inspiring sequence in a Star Trek movie than when the Enterprise is in space dock for the travel pod tourI like that the first Trek film takes its time too in these kind of moments. I wonder if the change in color of the model was due to some lighting of it or maybe the change came from the composite on the optical printer?
