This technical essay site was created to examine the digital compositing in the Star Trek: Deep Space 9 episode, "Trials and Tribble-ations" which aired 11/9/96. The DS9 episode incorporated footage from Star Trek episode 49, "The Trouble with Tribbles."

As a professional Digital Video Producer and former Special Effects Director, I was interested in the technical details. As I was examining both episodes for comparison, I thought that I might as well create a web site for others who don't have access to both episodes and side-by-side monitors.

You can explore the site chronologically or using the scene index. I have included some of my own observations and welcome your input. If you have any insight into the making of this fantastic Deep Space 9 episode, drop me a note:
