The sphere creates a temporal vortex, realized by ILM as bright, dazzling waves of
energy, similar to Digital Domain's re-entry sequence
for APOLLO 13. The Enterprise enters the rift and
both the sphere and the Enterprise travel back in time to the mid-21st Century. The
CG vortex was accompanied by a CG sphere and the CG Enterprise.
The Enterprise follows the sphere into the temporal rift
At first, the vortex completely surrounds the Enterprise.
A bit later, the crew realize that the Earth has been Borgified.
