Thanks for the interview! Indeed, some very interesting facts in this one. I didn't know a phaser beam consisted of so many elements. Also, that Dan Curry shot his FX work with 30 fps. Why exactly did he do that? I have to admit, though, that I snickered when I read about their process of removing boom mics, tripods and such, when there's still some of that in the remastered episodes.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to the other parts of the interview.
Oh, and what exactly is R&D?
