A fun fact: the two equipment cases in this shot were just plain solid colored cases that were "taped" to add detail. It's amazing what a few inches of narrow art tape can do to make something visually interesting. The little rectangle was deliberately taped with white on two sides and black on the others to make it look like a raised detail. It actually works surprisingly well.
Reminds me of Mike Okuda, who turned that into an art form. He probably ordered masking tape by the truckload during his work on various Trek productions.
