I was hoping that they would form into a rock monster that Capt. Kirk would have to fight hand to hand.
Tha scene is from Galaxy Quest
All the pillars were supposed to turn into monsters and fight Kirk but the budget wasn't there so they just shot one monster.. and apparently the scene was so bad they cut it.
All the flashy effects and cgi wouldn't have saved STV as written anyways. Not even Sean Connery.
