This is an interesting tidbit that I didn't know. To what degree can this be attributed to start-up costs?
Much of it was start-up costs, I believe (the bridge set and the standing planet set couldn't have been cheap). There's also the fact that it took 16 days to shoot, 8-10 days longer than it took to photograph a typical episode of the series, which added plenty of expense.
