To set things straight...

... the SFX are all completely new.

Here are some comparison shots of the in-game-cutscenes and the newly-for-the-movie created shots (the first image showing the game video, the second the movie version):

The Battle

Most of the TREK movies feature a breathtaking space battle sequence. From the classic Enterprise vs. Reliant dog-fight in THE WRATH OF KHAN, to the dynamic fire-exchange between the Enterprise and the Scimitar in NEMESIS, those sequences have been a special moment in most of the TREK movies.

A FINAL UNITY will follow this tradition and feature a spacebattle between (for the first time ever on screen) the Galaxy-Class Enterprise-D and a Romulan Warbird.

Those of you, who played the game, will remember that a short outburst of war between the Federation and the Romulan Star Empire changes the action of the game completely, and reveals the true storyline.

The film will do likewise. Here are some Animatics and finished shots from the around 6 minute long sequence.

The style of the battle is a mix between closeup shots like featured in GENERATIONS and flyby shots as seen in NEMESIS.

Expect some animated footage soon!
