Trek Visual Effects Artist Matt Boardman stops by this week's episode to talk sh*p with Robbie and Alex. Their discussion includes ship VFX and art; ship design aesthetics; animation and rendering of CGI models; using VFX to tell stories; and more. An expanded chat with Matt is exclusively available to our patrons at or above the Constitution-class tier on Patreon. Also, answers to this week's Community Q are discussed, a new question is announced, and this week's All Hands on Deck Drill sees the community visiting the shipyards to re-commission pre-Excelsior-class-era ships. Lastly, this episode's post-credits easter egg is not one to be missed... Hailing frequencies are always open at www.shiptalkingpod.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
