Update on the high definition remastering of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine that’s apparently underway, on the TrekCore blog:
As part of an upcoming feature profiling the original CG artists who worked on Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise, I set about researching and contacting a number of the team who were responsible for CG work back in the day for effects houses such as Foundation Imaging and Eden FX. A startling breakthrough came during an interview with former Senior CG Supervisor Robert Bonchune who worked on all three post-TNG spinoffs and won a host of Emmys for his CG work on several famous episodes. During the interview - which will be published later this month - Bonchune revealed that he still has in his possession all of the original CG scene files which he worked on during his time working on Star Trek.
This is one of the things I love about the digital age: how easy it is to archive stuff like this. Of course, it’s balanced out by how easy it is to lose stuff like this.

Good night, sweet prince.

I couldn’t resist one more Andy Rooney related link. Joe Mande has been editing Andy’s segment’s down to the just the first and last lines since 2007 — new to me though. As a swan song, Mande posts his top five favorite entries of all time and boy, they’re great.

Finally, we’ll round out our tribute with Andy on the calendar. His final line here is what I consider to be the greatest thing he’s ever said, and I think it forms a fitting ending to our day.

I want to stress that 60 Minutes is a show on prime time television. This was aired nationally.
