    Going a little off topic, of all the movies The Search For Spock has always felt, in places, a bit made-for-tv to me. This is very evident in some of the earlier Enterprise bridge scenes and I suppose lighting has a lot to do with it.

    Having said that ILM did some exceptional stuff with Spacedock, the Bird of Prey and the Enterprise blowing up.

    I always smile upon seeing him at the helm, especially because The Search for Spock was released before Robocop.

    How many of you realize that Count Rugen was manning the tactical station on Enterprise before Chekov took over in TWOK? ;)

    Are you sure about that one, FormerLurker? Doesn't look like Christopher Guest to me.

    His name is in the credits. And remember, it was 1982. He was a bit younger then.

    While I like the retro sixties-esque styling of the original Excelsior bridge, it's clear that it's just a cheap n' dirty mock up rather than a full set. The distinct lack of different levels is also somewhat distressing. There's something a bit "flat" about it.

    The NCC version seen in TUC is better, natch. :)
