A historic visual effects VistaFlex motion-control camera crane system manufactured by Apogee and first used during the production of Robert Wise's Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Apogee, Inc. was formed by a group of key visual effects technicians that produced visual effects for Star Wars: A New Hope, including John Dykstra and Grant McCune. The company operated out of the same facility in Van Nuys where work on A New Hope took place. When Lucasfilm moved ILM North to the Bay Area, Apogee kept the original Dykstraflex camera that was built for the film, along with other camera equipment. One of Apogee's first projects was to assemble a new working stock of camera equipment, including the VistaFlex motion control system, which was designed by Don Trumbull (the father of Douglas Trumbull) in 1978.
