Zardoz,

Yeah, that's true. In some ways. But you know, tech seems to be catching up with Harlan's imagination. I've heard that he and Ed Bryant are trying to revive "The Starlost" and this time do the thing right. This is a good example of how Harlan's imagination is far greater than the talents around him: the "ark" was supposed to have been 1000 miles long. Now, for TV, even if you made a miniature 1/1000 scale, you'd have a miniature a mile long! Of course now, FX studios like Zoic or Rythum and Hues can do it without batting an eyelash.

I daresay that today, fans could shoot the script as originally written, and do it on their home computer, better than the Desilu and NBC could have!
