Planet Genesis in 2285. (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)

This shot was neither created by creating a matte painting nor filming a planet maquette, as was hitherto customary, but rather as CGI. It was the very first digital matte painting used in Star Trek, created by Chris Evans for closing pull-away sequence of the "Genesis Demo" having used one of the earliest paint computer programs that had been developed in-house in 1981 by Thomas Porter at ILM. (American Cinematographer, October 1982, p. 1050)
