Also old enough to have worked at Paramount and built some special effects hardware for the original motion picture after Trumbull took over.
The capabilities of the hardware far exceeded what made it to film in the worm hole.
Was a part of a crew who built a bridge set for an LA ST con back in around 1974 in the garage of John and Bjo Trimble. It was the bomb.
Wrote a letter to NBC back when there was the save star trek letter writing campaign back in like 1966
I remember my brother having a college friend whose father ran a company (Howard Anderson Studio) that did special effects for some of the original Star Trek episodes. I used to watch the credits to see if they were mentioned.
