Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

This process of destruction - overlaying the explosion over a model - was done for budget reasons. Models were expensive; they couldn't afford to build a model that was designed to self-destruct.

It wasn't until CGI that ships were actually being destroyed. My favorite moment of a ship being destroyed was a Steamrunner-class starship that was walloped by a piece of Borg ship.
