Chroma key, also known as blue screen or green screen, was a colored backdrop used for shooting scenes whose backgrounds would later be filled in with CGI scenery.

Green screens were used in several episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise such as the first season episodes "Terra Nova", "Breaking the Ice", and "Civilization".

For "Terra Nova", a green screen was used for the scene in which Captain Archer and Nadet watch Enterprise NX-01 through the window of the Shuttlepod 1 cockpit, as noted on the call sheet.

A scene from "The Andorian Incident" where a green screen was used before a moving starfield was added

The call sheet for the episode "The Andorian Incident" listed a green screen in the mess hall scenes, replaced later in post-production by a moving starfield. Another green screen was used during filming of this episode and raised on a platform for a view through a metallic door in a Vulcan reliquary, depicting later a CGI-created matte painting of a Vulcan listening post. ("The Andorian Incident" call sheet)

A green screen was also used and placed on the monitor in Archer's quarters at the beginning of the first season episode "Fortunate Son". Later, the monitor was "filled" with a recorded message from Admiral Maxwell Forrest. ("Fortunate Son" call sheet)

Star Trek: Discovery used green screens to film Michael Burnham's spacewalk scenes in DIS: "The Vulcan Hello", as well as scenes aboard the USS Shenzhou's damaged brig. [1]
