Re: How Far Should TOS-R Have Gone?

I have a couple of problems with TOSR. First of a,ll Eden FX (the company that did the FX for In A Mirror Darkly) put in a bid for the job by doing some test shots for Tomorrow is Yesterday (pix below) but CBS decided to play it cheap and went with their own "in house" effects crew. Another problem is that the Enterprise (a character in her own right) looked too flat, cartoony and digital. The real model approach of Trials and Tribble-ations would have flowed much better. I must admit that some of the matte paintings were quite nice however, but all in all a missed opportunity for a show that deserves the utmost respect and effort. I also found their approach inconsistent. Some things were fixed, some not.
