VFX supervisor Jason Zimmerman had an interesting challenge when faced with work in the third season Star Trek: Discovery: Setting the visual language of the show’s completely new age of canon, one that is far from established times anything we’ve ever seen in the series. What should it look like? How loyal should one be to what came before? Will it be recognizable to our heroes as well?

Honestly, it would be a very engaging interview show if Wheaton just let the guests talk more. All the same, Zimmerman has some interesting things to say here. Search Going to some fascinating places, and Zimmerman’s role in designing the visual language of those places, is important and really interesting.
