Re: Matt Jefferies, creating a world...
I think a lot of people are sometimes cynical about Mr. Jefferies' genius, simply because they think that the sands of time have puffed his talents up as they have some others, but I couldn't disagree more. His thoroughness and common sense approach to the design work on Star Trek IMO is what helped set it apart, and helped the design concepts stand the test of time.
