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?
Wait, that is the Director's Cut. That is a mixed bag for me. Love some of the new shots they did clarifying V'ger threatening Earth but some of the vfx replacement shots aren't an improvement.Seeing STMP 4K with HDR is enough for me I did not care for the Directors Cut at all but have to respect its close to Wises's original vision (all the new FX for instance were based on the original storyboards).
Okay, SDCC dropped the trailer for Picard...The tone looks terrible yet more Discovery style PC nonsense wrapped around a few cameos from 1990s TV Trek & TNG
My only real complaint is I am tired of these dark interiors. One thing Beyond did great was this kind of Federation space station utopia for the Yorktown. Same for STTMP's Earth. I miss that optimistic vision of the future. The interiors here look like leftover sets from Enterprise and DS9. Daaarkk. Interiors must be dark in order for our show to be...daarrrk.
Just realized there was no trek content above, sorry. But, sos long as I'm screwing that up, I oughta mention that I haven't raved about TWIN PEAKS yet this week. Started rewatching the third season again this week (sixth time through, not counting the number of times I've watched episode 8, which probably numbers a couple dozen by now) and it is just sublime. What is weird is how I remember the tension I felt during the first viewing (was convinced Cooper-while-stuck-in-Doug-E would be killed for shock value) and how ridiculous it seems in retrospect, but my appreciation is wholly undiminished.
Did anybody ever consider Kyle for a DICK TRACY project? Or think of casting him as Robert Vaughn's son? Back when my chin still had incredible definition, I sometimes wondered if I was actually Vaughn's son. My mom often mentioned that when she was a stewardess for Western, he was practically the only gentleman among the celebrities she had to deal with. 'the less you know' ... right?
