DS9 Model behind-the-scenes
 
Just happened upon this awesome video on youtube! I'm so jealous of these fx guys! LOVE seeing all of those shots of one of the first DS9 models being built!

The owner of that youtube channel has uploaded lots of other Trek videos too! :techman:

I just noticed the same video has been posted on another channel for 3 years. Oh well, it's the first time I've seen it! Somebody give me a ribbon! LOL

Where is the DS9 model now? I would hope it is in a museum somewhere, not in someones garage.

Thanks for the link! I hadn't seen that. That's the kind of thing I hope they'll include as a bonus feature in a Blu-ray release of Deep Space Nine. The insight it provides into the making of "Emissary" is amazing. I hadn't realized the effects for the hell planet Sisko sees inside the wormhole were that elaborate. The work of all those guys Legato, Jein, Meininger, Hutzel, Drexler was always extraordinary. Plus, most of them seem to be such nice people. It's always cool to see their work appreciated.

As for the model of the station itself: It looks freakin' gorgeous! One of my favorite models ever build for television or a movie. I'm so looking forward to seeing it in high definition. By the way, does anyone know of high resolution photos of the model? I would love to study the detail on it.

Garage? God forbid! It's probably in someone's vault.

That was good. I'd forgotten it but I used to love that show.
