Default Space Plane on the Enterprise intro

Does anyone know what the name of the hypersonic space plane Star Trek Enterprise shown in the intro for about six seconds starting at about the 0:95 second mark? It shows the space plane in orbit undocking from a space station and descending toward Earth. Below is a pic of it.

I'd like to build a model of it but I can't find any info on it. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Can't really make out a name but I think the letters on the side say OV-111. OV might stand for Orbiter Vehicle.

EDIT: Did a search on memory Alpha. It's OV-165.

That's one of the reasons why I enjoyed ENT so much. It felt very realistic in regards to where we could be in the near future. The clothing and even the colorful language also added realism for me. Movie night was a great touch, but I always hoped they would watch something that wasn't black and white, maybe something more modern.

Indeed, finally some uniforms that did not look like pyjamas or spandex training suits.

There was a nice conversation between Phlox and Cutler in "Dear Doctor" which reflected Trek's suggestion that there will be no more cinema or TV in the 23rd century. Phlox said something like his people abandoned a similar from of entertainment when they discovered that the real life was more interesting and Cutler said that it does not hurt to get away from it all from time to time.

The inside of the ship doesn't look so clinical either. it looks more like a place where people work, rather than an airport lounge which is what the bridges on TNG and VOY look like to me. DS9 also looks a bit more like the type of place where work is actually done.

I agree the overall design is a nice bridge between today and TOS.

NX-01 bridge was a cool design and very functional. But I didn't like the light bars they added on the E2 NX-01 or on the Columbia. I never saw the point of them. I'd think if they were some type of plasma conduit, they wouldn't pulse but always be on, and then they would be green as the shows have always showed that plasma is green.

Columbia Bridge


This was the best screencap I could do.
E2 Bridge
