Good eye! Yes, David Stipes was a visual effects supervisor for Star Trek: The Next Generation and we were so lucky to get his help for our show too. The CGI model is created an animated by Sigil FX by S.E. O'Brien, in Australia, who was a fan of Season 1 and wanted to help out.
We're an all volunteer outfit, no one gets paid, and its been really awesome having the help from so many talented people who just want to help us run around with ray guns and lizard masks!
