I painted the plane of the galaxy used in the distant background, and a few of us worked on the developing solar system model with the swirly coalescing planets. All of the art was new; nothing reworked from COSMOS, though some of the 3-D VFX flight through or past different objects did seem reminiscent of the COSMOS travels, though that was likely due to our VFX folks mentally channeling that earlier effort.
I just want to thank Rick for being cool and communicating with us fans.
