[EAS] Re-used props: viewscreens
« on: February 01, 2007, 02:25:01 AM »
I'd just like to point out that the Battle Bridge viewscreen was also used as a background prop in The Measure Of A Man (the courtroom, in fact, looks like a heavily modified Battle Bridge sans doors or consoles, except for the standing ones on the railings). I think the screen - or one that looked very similar - was also used for the Stargazer's bridge in The Battle.

I don't have the DVD's myself, however, I did find these screenshots at TrekCore:

The courtroom
The Battle Bridge
The viewscreen (note the rounded edges and box at the top)
The Stargazer's viewscreen

I hope this is useful  :)

This isn't a viewscreen, but it's a very interesting case of a reused prop (and didn't want to make a new thread).

The "flashing tubes with lights" prop that debuted it's Trek usage in "Wrath of Khan" was barely seen in The Last Starfighter being checked by the character Grig.

You can see the black parts that Grig was reaching for better in these pics:

The prop is talked about on this page: http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/inconsistencies/reused_props2.htm

I know the article on the prop mentions that it's not a prop built exclusively for Trek- I just found it mostly interesting since Wil Wheaton was supposed to be in the movie, but all of his scenes were cut.
