Constitution-class USS Enterprise upgraded CGI studio model by CBS Digital. (TOS-R: "The Menagerie, Part I")\
A near identical, higher resolution, image of this one exists, having been featured in TOS-R: "Balance of Terror", shown on the right. That one was the original version of the CGI model used initially for the remastered
Original Series. Yet, due to cost considerations, the decision was made to cut down on the rendering time by dialing down the (pixel count) resolution of their highly detailed original CGI Enterprise model, which however, due to the "spatial resolution" effect, resulted unexpectedly into the more crisp and more sharply defined imagery, even though being of far lesser resolution, as featured.
