I've seen photos of the location shoot for "Operation -- Annihilate!" before, though maybe not those particular photos. In any case, thanks for sharing them.

TRW Corporation was acquired by Northrop Grumman in 2002, and the big white building at the Redondo Beach complex where the episode was filmed now bears the Northrop Grumman logo.

Northrop Grumman at one time had a page on their website about the filming of "Operation -- Annihilate" at Space Park, including several photos. The first of your pics was one of them; the second might also have been, but I'm not 100% certain about that*. Unfortunately, the page was removed or made unavailable a few years back, and I haven't seen the content anywhere since.


* Edit: probably just the one photo - in this post, where I'd linked to the Northrop-Grumman page, I mention "one [shot] of filming in progress".

A bit chilly that day? Or maybe just having that many people gawking at your legs would make anyone feel a bit shy.

You see quite a few shots of cast members on location wearing jackets.

I've noticed that, too. "Annihilate" was filmed in February, so it makes sense.

Judging by everyone's dress; yes it must have been chilly that day.

When I run into situations like that, trying a different browser often works.

Or you could try clicking on "quote," switch to HTML mode, and copy and paste the URL for the image into your address bar. Sometimes that helps.
