CBS have released an image from "Spocks Brain" Remastered. It is the new ‘ion ship’
In the episode "Spock’s Brain" the ion propulsion spacecraft spotted by the Enterprise in 2268 certainly impressed Scotty with its design and technology. The comparison between the original and the remastered version provides two totally different looks, with styles defined more by the contemporary technology. The original (bottom photo) is a standard rocket-shaped configuration. At the time, "spaceships" tended to fall into a one of two classic looks, the other being the the flying saucer.The new, remastered version (top photo) of the ion propulsion craft is smaller and more utilitarian, reflecting its single-person occupancy, and it ditches the unnecessary missile/rocket configuration. The design also reflects more modern-day ion propulsion prototypes.
UPDATE: Aint it Cool News has a new shot of the the beam down with a new glacier
