Models, Sets, Props, Technicians from Star Trek TOS 35mm single frame film clip restorations
This glimpse into the history and the admittedly primitive models and special effects, at least by today's standards, gives a great view of how Star Trek the original series was produced. As documented in several places including Bob Justman's fine book the budget for the shows was fairly modest by the time production started and decreased continually through the three seasons. In that context one has to respect a number of the accomplishments creating stange new worlds and the beings that inhabited them as well as the creative reuse of materials.
