    Just happened upon this awesome video on youtube! I'm so jealous of these fx guys! LOVE seeing all of those shots of one of the first DS9 models being built!

    I just noticed the same video has been posted on another channel for 3 years. Oh well, it's the first time I've seen it! Somebody give me a ribbon! LOL

    Where is the DS9 model now? I would hope it is in a museum somewhere, not in someones garage.

    Thanks for the link! I hadn't seen that. That's the kind of thing I hope they'll include as a bonus feature in a Blu-ray release of Deep Space Nine. The insight it provides into the making of "Emissary" is amazing. I hadn't realized the effects for the hell planet Sisko sees inside the wormhole were that elaborate. The work of all those guys – Legato, Jein, Meininger, Hutzel, Drexler – was always extraordinary. Plus, most of them seem to be such nice people. It's always cool to see their work appreciated.

    As for the model of the station itself: It looks freakin' gorgeous! One of my favorite models ever build for television or a movie. I'm so looking forward to seeing it in high definition. By the way, does anyone know of high resolution photos of the model? I would love to study the detail on it.

    Garage? God forbid! It's probably in someone's vault.

    That was good. I'd forgotten it but I used to love that show.
