Curry Says 'Enterprise' Sets Are 'Incredible'

Last month, a panel of fourteen visual effects personnel from all four Star Trek series gathered to look back on some of Trek's effects wizardry, and also briefly commented on Enterprise.

"The Enterprise sets will be the most incredible sets done for any TV show," said visual effects producer Dan Curry at the 2001 Visual Effects Society festival (via StarTrek.com).

In the promotional video shown at the UPN upfront presentation, Production Designer Herman Zimmerman said that "The Enterprise that we're watching now is going to be much more hands on for the crew."

At the festival, Zimmerman said that 'Broken Bow,' the two-hour Enterprise pilot, took over six weeks to shoot in May and June. The crew used over forty different sets and locations during the shoot, in contrast to many feature films, which use less than thirty.

'Broken Bow' was reported to have been shooting near Redondo Beach, Westward Beach, Malibu, the Vista Del Mar, and the Hyperion Sewage Plant in Los Angeles.

The full report from the Visual Effects Society festival can be found here.
