Just finished Q Who in my linear watch-through and the compositing of the Borg cube really does look pretty bad. Very flat and gray looking.
Would you consider the Royale to be an example of sticking to the script even though the details of it are completely contradicting to what we are seeing?
Data: He's been dead for 283 years sir. The lack of any advanced decomposition is due to the sterile environment.
And yet, it's a freaking skeleton. Why didn't they just say it was a skeleton? Why does the dialogue imply that we should be seeing a somewhat preserved body when we're looking at a skeleton with skin flakes underneath it?
Do you know what... I feel very stupid as I had never noticed that before.
I always assumed Data meant that the skeleton was still somewhat preserved and not crumbled completely to dust. But, on thinking about it more, Jeyl is probably correct.
