These shots are all amazing! How are these guys doing this - turning a cheap looking 80s TV series into something modern and cinematic? It's an absolute credit to the outstanding talent at CBS Digital!
Yes, and also to the original camera crew and VFX teams that did this work in '89 & '90. With the exception of the planets that were done on the Quantel Mirage in video res, the miniatures were shot on 35mm film and look fantastic to this day. So, it's a case of quality in, quality out. You need both working in concert though!
