Star Trek XI stunt coordinator Joey Box explains what it took to create the scene where Kirk, Sulu and doomed redshirt Olsen skydive down to the Romulan drill to attempt to disable it.
As reported by Titan Magazines, the skydiving scene was a challenge to produce. “There were a lot of unknowns,” said Box. “That was all stunts, with a little bit of visual effects. Our fantastic visual effects director, Roger Guyett, added to it tremendously.”
