Great job on the Cygnus. I remember how excited I was when I first learned of Disney's "Black Hole" movie project... and how very, very disappointed I was in the movie. It had some good ideas, but they were applied in the most ridiculous way imaginable.
Well, right. Lucas and his team did an amazing job on Star Wars then. So much that it was ground breaking for so many things like Battlestar Galactica or The Last Starfighter. I'm just saying that SOME movies/shows in the 70's had "interesting" special effects. I'm not saying it's a bad thing. (Though these movies all had some kick-ass stories to them!)
