    I hope they're joking, because some of this doesn't exactly sound super competent on the production's part...

    Does Troi have black eyes? Has she always had black eyes? Have I gone 33 years without noticing that?

    Why was she at Universal? That has no connection to CBS.

    The new version is much better than the SDCC trailer.

    Probably a mistake on her part.

    At least some outdoor scenes for the show were filmed at Universal; Jeri Ryan mentioned at a convention she had to wear a full-length coat with hood to hide her outfit while standing only a few feet away from a bunch of tourists on the Universal lot.

    Universal has terrific facilities that are available for rent by anyone. Studios aren't (and never were) confined only by the real estate they own.

    The Riker/Troi house is there.

    Concerning production team incompetence... they forgot or didn't know about Pike's rank stripes initially until someone finally pointed it out XD

    About deciding that Data CGI was too expensive and not to do it and Spiner having to talk them into doing less extreme version and not knowing that Troi wore contacts and not have them prepared and Sirtis having to bring her own stuff from ages ago. (I mean, that cannot even be be safe. Almost 20-year old contact lenses!)

    "
    SIRTIS:
    You looked awful.

    SPINER: Yeah, it didn’t look good. But they’ve repaired all that since. They just hadn’t finished yet."

    Got to love her blatant honesty.:D

    SPINER:
    Yeah. We had had dinner with Patrick when he told us about the show –

    SIRTIS: When he apologized for doing the show without us! He [bought us dinner] "

    She's not bitter at all :lol:

    This is a team who haven’t worked with Sirtis before, probably had no idea. First I heard of her wearing a wig in NEM was today, myself.

    The make-up department does not even not that Vulkans and Romulans have yellow-green skin.

    I knew that she wore hair pieces in TNG (the curly ones) but I always thought that her hair in the movies was hers.

    It has been so since the JJ reboots. It seems that at some point they just forgot. It is weird, as all this is very well documented. They used the exact same make up formula for T'Pol in ENT that Spock had in TOS. It kinda bugs me when vulcanoids are very noticeably pink.
