I'm still wondering what the other four lights on Captain Pike's wheelchair were for.
The gray rectangular panel looks like a mini etch-a-sketch, with the knobs as the controllers. It was an experimental way of communicating with him, beyond the limitations of the yes/no questions.

Re: Matte Paintings and Backdrops

[QUOTE=Christopher;9998764]The matte paintings were all by Albert Whitlock, weren't they?QUOTE]

Whitlock is a legend... I love his matte paintings in Dracula (1979) Those were some of the last ones he did and Carfax abbey never looked so great in color!

Its a pity that many of the glass matte painting from Hollywood history were simply wiped clean and the glass reused for another scenic painting. Wouldn't one love to have painting from a roger corman Vincent price film!?!

Does anybody know the status of the trek backdrops mentioned above?
