Could be. I'm not predicting these things any more.

I spoke to Jimm Johnson last Thursday. Work is ongoing, and he told me something about a practical effect that he's working to integrate with the CG that sounded quite cool. You have to remember that Exeter basically started with Jimm's interest in duplicating "old-fashioned" movie tricks like half-silvered mirrors for laser effects and swirly-stuff-in-a-blender for transporter beams.
Did you tell Jimm about the "alka-seltzer trick"?
Didn't think to mention it to him - he probably has read about it. In any event all the transporter work is done - this new gimmick of his is for an odd spatial effect that the ship encounters. And further this deponent sayeth not.
