The Borg Queen is lowered into her body in the
most dramatic effects shot in the film.
SHOT PRODUCED BY INDUSTRIAL LIGHT & MAGIC
The shot is worthy of study, due to its seamlessness. Krige was fitted with a prosthetic shoulders and spine, while the rest of her body was angled and covered with bluescreen material. She was lowered on the stage in a motion control rig, then completed the shot in full costume. The transition was handled by ILM with incredible morphing and 3D animation, with the empty Borg suit fashioned in CG. The shot was simply stunning.
as well as the Borg-vision shots and numerous wire-
removal shots for the show.
