That's cool to see those old school effects techniques. It just kills me to see them blowing up that Klingon ship though. I'd have loved to have had one of those models back then.

I'm of the opinion models should be blown up repeatedly in true Supermarionation style and then the remains set fire to!

Apparently, those were castings off of the TOS Klingon ship. Once those experiments failed (and failed they did), Abel and co. realized they would have to go bigger. Hence the 48" miniature (though by the time they got that built they had abandoned the idea of blowing up a model and decided that any "explosion" would involve an optical).

Just as well. I like the static electricity effect they used for V'Ger absorbing them better.

Actually, there are some neat ideas in the Klingon ship sequence that Abel had to abandon. Looking at the original boards, there was supposed to be a lot more "evasive maneuvers" and a feeling of speed and mass. The Klingon ships were going to roll more and one ship was going to have it's warp engine blown off and just drift dead in space.

Along the way, the concept of the whiplash bolts changed to a digitizing effect and, overall, the entire sequence was simplified (due to schedule pressures) by Apogee.......

Maybe we can persuade Darren Dochterman to do some animatics/pre-viz based on the original boards.

Yeah... kinda breaks your heart to watch her start crying when they started shaving off all of that beautiful hair. God doesn't often put THAT kind of beauty on the planet. But when He does... man.

These videos are great, it's amazing how much still hasn't been seen before.

Persis, pics damnit pics!









Persis was cast as Ilia for the Phase 2 series, she wore a bald cap for this costume test.

It was sad that we lost her so early in her life. She was a beautiful woman.
