Thank you for clarifying. The question stands.
They probably went with HTV-Illuminate since Dan Curry works there. Even if they did go with the lowest bid, that shouldn't automatically indicate shoddy work...it all comes down to how much the people working on it care about the product. If this place doesn't pay people, like the person on that website said, then it's a possibility that the place is populated with a group of disinterested, disillusioned workers.
The product we're seeing certainly doesn't reflect much in the way of 'love' for matching the look of Season 1 or even making Next Generation look good.
There is no love in those shots, it simply comes across as "get the job done and get paid".
