Re: The recycled footage of BOP exploding in Generations

As good as ILM is, they seemed to have some limitations when it came to shooting the Enterprise models for Trek. Either that, or they just didn't like working with a model someone else designed.

In TMP, Doug Trumbull shot the Enterprise model in 50 different ways and made it look fantastic. From TWOK on, ILM was always complaining that the Enterprise model was near impossible to work with and could only be shot from 2 or 3 angles and look good. Similarly, the Enterprise-D was used on the television series for seven years and with good results, and looked good in Generations. Yet ILM claimed it wouldn't work for the big screen and that they needed a new model.
