Re: rare production photos from "Operation -- Annihilate!"

^ Don't worry, that's just the torture.

PICARD: What I didn't put in the report was that at the end he gave me a choice between a life of comfort or more torture. All I had to do was to say that I could see two pictures, when in fact, there was only one.
TROI: You didn't say it?
PICARD: No, no, but I was going to. I would have told him anything. Anything at all. But more than that, I believed that I could see two pictures.
Oops, a TNG reference in the TOS forum. I hope that doesn't cause the universe to implode or anything.

Re: rare production photos from "Operation -- Annihilate!"

This got me motivated. Today I visited deneva. The last Saturday of the months the ham radio swap meet at Northrop Grumman . I grabbed my camera and went. I recreated all the camera set ups, took photos and then- during the last section - noticed a sign that said photography prohibited. Ironically the signs were located on the cafeteria of the facility. So my last few "then and now" we're a bit hasty. But it hasn't changed all that much in 45+ years. It was a lovely visit to deneva, albeit overcast.

Actually, the coats and dressing gowns are probably to protect the costumes more than the actor. Coffee stains, or back then it was probably cigarette marks are probably why you see the costumes covered up.

^Sounds good in theory, but then why is the "yeoman" the only one wearing a coat in the photo? That suggests it was more to do with keeping her legs warm.

Re: rare production photos from "Operation -- Annihilate!"

Just noticed this thread. Thanks for posting the photo - it's one I don't recall seeing prior to this. It must have been a hoot being employed there and getting to stand on the walkway while they were filming.

From the board FAQ (link)

When posting images, please make sure you do not post more than 50-70kb worth of photos, as a courtesy to those with slower connections. Images are to be no larger than 640x480.

Plus, you should only include an inline images from web space that you own, or with the permission from the webmaster on which the image is located to avoid what results in costly bandwidth theft to the originating site owner.

Instead, please post a link to the image.
So upload to Photobucket or Flickr or something like that and then use the image button in the message editor and paste the picture's URL into that.

I was just kidding although I would love to see how the place looks these days.

As noted above; posting photos is pretty easy. Let me know if you need any help.

A bit chilly that day? Or maybe just having that many people gawking at your legs would make anyone feel a bit shy.
The temperature the day of filming was a low of 48F and a high of 65F. The wind was 9 knots, however fast that is.

Re: rare production photos from "Operation -- Annihilate!"

My desktop is on the fritz. Should have it going in a week or so. I replicated all the shots from the show and also annotated a map of the facility showing the camera angles. With luck I can share. I also replicated the behind the scenes shots. Angles weren't perfect as I learned that photography is not permitted.
