DNEG’s work on the series helped deliver an even bigger and better return to Star Trek’s beloved interplanetary universe. Across seven episodes our teams delivered shots offering everything from meteoric FX to earthy full-CG hero assets to holographic MGFX.



In the Emmy-winning Episode 11 ‘Su’kal’, our team helped create a full CG nebula environment through Layout, Environment, Lighting and Comp work. Working with live action plates, we also used FX to construct ‘programmable matter’ on the ship consoles, integrating this with both holograms and plate footage.

Congratulations once again to our amazing Episodic VFX team and to all our fellow winners!
