Starbase 11. What a great picture, and it even includes Starfleet personnel walking down the street.

Running Time 1:40

Crew of the Relativity

  • Captain Chris Sixx, a Trill

Episode Info

Starfleet accuses Kirk of negligence in command, as even the computer shows that he killed someone by making a mistake (even though it was bound to happen eventually, ergonomically speaking).

For a good view of the original compared the remastered versions, check out this article at TrekMovie.com.

Episode Pictures (click for hi-res):

 

01 damage

Here, we clearly see where the pod was ejected from.

02 matte painting

The HD remaster SFX group was absolutely on top form in this episode. On the Starbase, you can seep offices and people in the windows. It was a nice touch of them to keep the original painting and simply add to it.

03 Star Ship Status - 10 ships

Commodore Stone’s starship status chart. This shows how important set design can be. To the viewer, these small touches can really make a world seem “lived in” and more real, even if the original show didn’t have the resources to show another starship in orbit.

04 kirk signing paper

Kirk reading papers and signing them with a surprisingly long pen.

The infamous "space baby" or "baby sailor moon" dress.

Another superb shot added into the HD upgrade. If you look carefully, not only are there people in the windows, but there are two people in space suits moving a temporary cover to the hole left by the pod ejection.

Look carefully on the left on the bar, and you'll see the sign for the "Starbase Club." Also, behind Kirk, you can see someone stubbing out their cigarette. Overall, the Club set was really well done.
