Well, maybe he just wants to finish it sometime sooner rather than later and is only taking on the big NEW shots instead of restaging some shots that weren't that horrible to begin with.
For instance, doing the powers of ten shot he described as taken from Shatner's original shooting script is gonna be a pain in the ass to shoot.
Yes, they were that horrible.
As far as I am concerned, there is nothing sacred about the original FX in STV. As I mentioned before, the staging of the original FX was horrible!
Why keep it the same?
All I can say is, I wouldn't...
