Re: TOS Enterprise Interiors -- Unreal 3 Engine

I've been intrigued by that standing "array" with the prismatic translucent pieces (at the far right in that "Turnabout Intruder" shot). I endearingly call it the "optic lava lamp".

Now I know TOS rarly (if ever) employed anything akin to a "foreground miniature", but if the production had used that technique, I can imagine them positioning this prop near the camera for an establishing shot in engineering. It does look vaguely like some kind of "intermix" tube...at least to me.

Sincerely,

Bill
