Responsible for the Delta Vega creatures in Star Trek XI, Neville Page talks to Animation World Network about his experiences working with J.J.

Bill Desowitz: So did you know from the start that you would be designing these two creatures on the Delta Vega Ice Planet?

Neville Page: No, when I read the script and it was originally a desert scene. I think they thought it was too similar to Tatooine.
