When we started out with the Borg, we certainly never did expect them to be such a recurring theme.
Voyager was more sleek and more advanced technically.
The production designer is responsible for everything you see on the screen, except the actor.
The difference between the Voyager design and The Next Generation ship was the Voyager ship was more a scientific exploration ship.
Sometimes I just hit the keyboard in a way I'd like the rhythm of the tracks to sound.
One of the most fun sets and one of the most fun episodes that we did was Bride of Chaotica.
It was funny but usually the holodeck sets were elaborate.
I'm a really good hacker, but I'm not a sensible person.
I would say the Borg presented us with a great deal of imagination.
I went for a much cooler look whereas the Enterprise for The Next Generation was a much warmer palette.
I used to make up names when I used to catalog my stuff.
I just mixed some sandpaper together for a bit and then played a food mixer and threw it at someone.
I got a feeling I had loads when I was in primary school, 'cause I had red hair you know, like Duracell.
I did a tremendous amount of research, and I was in contact with one of the Sherlock Holmes museums.
I could be quite happy working with, like, about four bits of my favorite equipment forever, 'cause it's got infinite possibilities.
Basically no, but if the actress would be in high heels, and my floor is going to be something that that's a real problem, we'd have to work that out.
And the ship was described as a vast endless chamber of Borg, as far up as you could see and as far down as you could see and as far forward as you can see.
And the actor is under the direction of the director, and make-up and wardrobe.
The Borg were always very time consuming, whatever episode they might be in, they were always difficult.
Over the course of thirteen years we've done some remarkable pieces and some of the things that came out of the special effects shop are quite beautiful.
I loved science fiction, but I was not really big on the original series.
It sounds really arrogant, but my music's my favourite music ever. I prefer it to anyone else's.
Can't really despise people you don't know.
Within the art department of Star Trek I had an illustrator, an animation artist, for computer animation, two graphics artists, two video feed technicians, two set designers, an art director, and a set director and his crew.
I'm not sure I can say it's my favourite but what certainly came to mind when you asked me the question was the computer that we put together for Elementary, Dear Data, a hologram episode.
