Members of Voyager's behind the scenes team were honoured last night for their work at the Emmy Awards Creative Arts ceremony, held in Pasadena, California.
The series had been nominated for eight awards across six categories, walking away on the night with awards for music and special effects.
Jay Chattaway won the category of 'Outstanding Music Composition For A Series (Dramatic Underscore)' for his work on 'Endgame,' beating out fellow Trek composer Dennis McCarthy, nominated for 'Workforce, Part One.' Other nominees in this category were The West Wing, The Simpsons and Xena: Warrior Princess.
The series finale also won for 'Oustanding Special Visual Effects For A Series,' beating out 'Workforce, Part One,' as well as the Dark Angel pilot and two episodes of Stargate SG-1.
Visual Effects Producer Dan Curry led the Emmy award-winning team, which also included Visual Effects Supervisors Mitch Suskin and Ron Moore, Visual Effects Coordinator Art Codron, Visual Effects Compositor Steve Fong, Matte Artist Eric Chauvin, CGI Supervisor Robert Bonchune, CGI Artist John Teska and Visual Effects Animator Greg Rainoff.
In the costuming category, Voyager lost to The Lot, while it bowed to MADtv in hairstyling. The series also failed to win the award for makeup, which went to The Sopranos, and sound editing, won by ER.
Two Trek alumni were nominated in the category of 'Outstanding Guest Actor In A Drama Series,' which is handed out at the same ceremony. James Cromwell (Zephram Cochrane) was nominated for his role of Bishop Stewart on ER, whilst René Auberjonois was nominated for the part of Judge Mantz on The Practice. However, on the night the award went to Michael Emerson for his guest appearance on The Practice.
In the course of its run, Voyager won seven Emmy awards out of a total of 35 nominations, all in technical categories. Past wins include Jerry Goldsmith for the main title theme, and the special effects team for 'Caretaker' and 'Dark Frontier.'
