Was the lighting of the old Trek series typical of the time?
It appears to have the elements of classically lit TV of the 60's

But then there's a lot of "crosslighting" and colored wall washing with "party gels"

looking at the Internet Fan-Series Starship Exeter (starshipexeter.com) they have uncannily reproduced
the "look" of the 60's series with a couple of high 2ks with 216s and practicals washing down the instrument stations-shot with a canon xl1s.

I could mention New voyages (newvoyages.com) but the lighting was spotty at best and only the latest
episode really hits the mark.

LOoking at behind the scenes photos reveal either 3 -2ks or 5ks just touching the set .
no softlights or diffusion visible (world of star trek)

Thanks
