If they did it like their other commercials, then it's a combination of clever editing and full scale replicated sets.

If he's talking about the split-screen Shatner-meets-his-double shots, that's just good compositing on the part of ILM, and it might have been done in an optical printer (this was right around the period when ILM was switching over to only digital compositing.)

The new DIRECT TV commerical where Shatner is the current old Shatner talking about how direct tv is *great* but he's on the bridge of the Enterprise in STAR TREK 6: Undiscovered Country.
It's amazing.Really amazing.

Umm, it's pretty standard editing. No CGI, and the only thing that doesn't really age in the shots of Shatner and McCoy where they're talking about DirectTV is Shatner's whig. I'm not really sure where you're seeing CGI at work.
