Star Trek: First Contact Easter Egg - Millenium Falcon in Borg Battle

John Knoll, ILM visual effects supervisor, worked on the effects for Star Trek First Contact and the Star Wars special editions. He slipped the newly made digital model of the Millenium Falcon into the Borg/Starfleet space battle. This was reported in several Star Trek fan magazines and can be seen if you have a DVD player with zoom and slow motion features.

The ship is quite small and is flying typically above and behind the Borg cube in several shots of the battle. If you can zoom and slow motion your DVD image, you can make out the shape of Han Solo's ship.

If you watch the movie with text commentary by Michael and Denise Okuda, they mention that the ship is "strikingly similar to" the Millennium Falcon.

The falcon might be true but is it true that there was an Akira(?) class ship named USS Thunderchild in tribute to (H.G Wells) The War Of The Worlds? Can anyone confirm this?

How do you know it was the Millenium Falcon, it could have been a Miranda or an Akira class ship. They look very close to the Millenium Falcon.
