Shatner sought a grittier and more realistic feel to the Star Trek universe, and so the two worked together to visualize the film from start to finish.
Shatner was pleased with the results, especially with Rodis' designs for Shatner's most expansive or dramatic shots. Rodis' input in developing the early character and costume designs was significant.
Shatner praised his costume designs as being futuristic but plausible and in keeping with the continuity established in previous Star Trek films.
Bennett hired Dodie Shepard as the costume supervisor; Shepard's role was to oversee the costume fabrication and keep track of the clothes during filming.
Rodis and Shatner also drew up sketches of what the various aliens seen in the film would look like.
Shatner picked Kenny Myers as the special-effects makeup artist. Myers discussed the sketches with Shatner and made casts of actors' faces using dental alginate.
Shatner hired Herman Zimmerman as production designer. At one point, he was building five sets at once. Zimmerman created a sketch of the town's layout over three days, drawing inspiration from a circular Moroccan fortress.
Tim Downs scouted possible areas for location filming. He looked for a location that could stand in for three different venues without the production having to move or change hotels: the film's opening scene; the God planet's establishing shots; and the Nimbus III Paradise City.
Downs was familiar with the Mojave desert and thought that locations near Ridgecrest, California , would serve the production's needs, so he took photos based on sketches Rodis had provided of what the locations might look like.
Downs also shot photos with filters and tried to accomplish dust effects with his car to replicate ideas for how some sequences would be shot.
Principal photography began in October , in and around Los Angeles, California. After one of the production's camera trucks exploded in the studio parking lot, the non-union drivers headed to Yosemite National Park under cover of darkness with a police escort.
The film's Yosemite scenes were all shot on location. The overhead shot gave the impression Kirk was climbing at a great height, while unnatural background features such as swimming pools were camouflaged.
In the scene, Spock watches Kirk's ascent, levitates up behind him as a pest giving suggestions with the outcome that Kirk slips and Spock has to saves him using levitating boots.
Bluescreen footage of Shatner falling was shot later at Paramount and composited, while stuntman Ken Bates set a record for the highest American descender fall by plummeting off El Capitan —with a wire support rig—for long shots.
The scenes had to be reshot later. After the Yosemite shots, location shooting moved to desert locales. The town was created as a haphazard collection of spaceship parts and futuristic scrap.
Shatner called the resulting half-jogging pace of the dehydrated extras "the Sybok shuffle". The production spent three more weeks filming the rest of the desert scenes, finishing the last night scene shortly before sunrise and the trip back to Los Angeles.
At Paramount, the crew filmed all the scenes that would take place on soundstages, including the Enterprise and Bird-of-Prey sets, the Paradise City interiors, and the campfire location.
Production was smoother on set, and the crew shot scenes ahead of schedule. The crew fabricated a stand-in set for the God planet location, where additional scenes were filmed to combine with the location footage.
Shatner scheduled the campfire scenes to be the last ones shot, after which the cast and crew had a small celebration before a traditional wrap party later.
Shatner returned to Paramount Studios a few days after principal photography had wrapped to organize the film's post-production schedule.
Shatner recalled that the film received praise and left the screening "reveling" in its reception; it turned out to be a "momentary victory" once he saw the special effects.
During the writers' strike, producer Ralph Winter confronted what writer Paul Mandell termed an "unenviable" effects situation.
With a stretched budget and short timeframe, Winter had to look elsewhere. The producers solicited test footage from various effects houses to judge which was best able to create the film's main effects, including the planet Sha Ka Ree and the godlike being which resided there.
Bran Ferren 's effects company Associates and Ferren was picked. Associates and Ferren had three months to complete the effects work—around half the usual industry timeframe.
Shatner insisted on viewing much test footage before he proceeded with each shot, requesting time-consuming changes if he did not like an effect.
The studio called a meeting with executives and began cutting out effects shots. To reduce the optical effects workload, Ferren rejected bluescreen compositing, opting instead for rear projection.
This cheaper process, he reasoned, would save time, and would make sense for elements such as the Enterprise ' s bridge viewer, where compositing would lack the softness of a real transmitted image.
The rock monster climax of the film was ultimately dropped due to difficulties during filming. Effects personnel smoked cigarettes and blew smoke into the suit's tubing,  loading it with smoke that it would slowly emit, obscuring some obvious rubber parts.
On the last day of location shooting, the Rockman began suffering mechanical problems; the suit stopped breathing fire, and the desert wind dissipated the smoke.
The result, Shatner wrote, was that "our guy in the silly rubber suit ultimately just looked like Once back at the studio for non-location filming, Shatner and Ferren met to discuss how to replace the Rockman.
The agreed-upon idea was an "amorphous blob of light and energy" that would rise up and chase after Kirk, shape-shifting while in pursuit.
When Shatner saw the effects, however, he was extremely disappointed with the low quality. Bennett and Shatner attempted to get money to reshoot the final scenes of the film, but Paramount turned them down.
While production wrapped, Ferren continued work on the miniatures and other optical effects at his New Jersey studio. The opticals were completed in Manhattan before being sent west;  for example, bluescreen footage of the motion controlled miniatures was filmed in Hoboken, New Jersey.
In New York, the blue screen was replaced by a moving starfield—a single finished shot of a ship moving through space required as many as fifty pieces of film.
The Great Barrier effects were created using chemicals, which were dropped into a large water tank to create swirls and other reactions.
The "God column", in which the false god appeared, was created by a rapidly rotating cylinder through which light was shone; the result appeared on film as a column of light.
Ferren used a beam splitter to project actor George Murdock's head into the cylinder, giving the appearance that the false god resided within the column.
Days after filming was completed, Shatner returned to Paramount to supervise the film's edit, soundscape creation and score, and integration of optical effects.
Editor Peter E. Berger had already assembled rough cuts of various sequences,  and with only weeks before the film's scheduled completion, the production team set about the task of salvaging the film's ending through editing.
The false god's screen time was reduced, and Ferren's "god blob" effect was replaced with a closeup of the actor's face, along with shots of lightning and smoke.
At the time, Shatner felt that the edits "pulled a rabbit out of a hat", solving many of the film's problems.
Shatner's cut ran slightly over two hours not including end credits or the opticals ,  which Paramount thought was too long.
Their target runtime was one hour forty-five minutes, which would guarantee twice-nightly theatrical screenings. Bennett was handed the task of shortening the film's running time, despite Shatner's view that nothing could possibly be removed.
Shatner was horrified by Bennett's edit, and the two haggled over what parts to restore or cut. In early test screenings, the film received negative reviews.
Of the first test audience, only a small portion considered the film "excellent", a rating that most other Star Trek films had enjoyed.
Music critic Jeff Bond wrote that Shatner made "at least two wise decisions" in making The Final Frontier ; beyond choosing Luckinbill as Sybok, he hired Jerry Goldsmith to compose the film's score.
Goldsmith had written the Academy Award-nominated score for Star Trek: The Motion Picture , and the new Trek film was an opportunity to craft music with a similar level of ambition while adding action and character—two elements largely missing from The Motion Picture.
He focused on the God planet as his most difficult task. Goldsmith's main theme begins with the traditional opening notes from Alexander Courage 's original television series theme; an ascending string and electronic bridge leads to a rendition of the march from The Motion Picture.
Here, the theme is treated in what Bond termed a "Prokofiev-like style as opposed to the avant-garde counterpoint" as seen in The Motion Picture.
Goldsmith also added a crying ram's horn. The breadth of The Final Frontier ' s locations led Goldsmith to eschew the two-themed approach of The Motion Picture in favor of leitmotifs , recurring music used for locations and characters.
Sybok is introduced with a synthesized motif in the opening scene of the film, while when Kirk and Spock discuss him en route to Nimbus III it is rendered in a more mysterious fashion.
The motif also appears in the action cue as Kirk and company land on Nimbus III and try to free the hostages. The Sybok theme from then on is used in either a benevolent sense or a more percussive, dark rendition.

Even down to the broken shutter in the corner It was really quite spooky. But we felt very relaxed in such a familiar and well-trodden environment and I think this shows in the playing and the atmosphere of the album.
After a month in Nassau, the production was moved to Malibu, California, where the songs were mixed and additional vocals were recorded.
He's pretty hands-on like that. Adrian Smith [guitars] dropped in from time to time to hear stuff, and like in any band, not everyone has the same end result in mind, but we get there.
The album is the fourth for which Steve Harris receives writing credits for every track, following Killers , Brave New World , and A Matter of Life and Death , although the final track, "When the Wild Wind Blows", is the only song which he wrote on his own.
Adrian Smith explains that, in recent years, Harris has become "more into writing lyrics and melodies and arranging" other members' tracks and only "brings in one or two songs" of his own.
The album's first and only music video, containing the latter half of " Satellite The Final Frontier" along with its music video were issued as radio promos before the album's release.
In a 1 July interview with Billboard , guitarist Dave Murray commented that the album mixes "straight-ahead, uptempo rock songs with good grooves with some other tracks that are kind of longer and more complex", referring particularly to "When the Wild Wind Blows", the band's fifth longest song after " Empire of the Clouds ", " Rime of the Ancient Mariner ", " The Red and the Black " and " Sign of the Cross ":  Interviewed for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on 14 July, guitarist Janick Gers discussed the album's overall sound: "We're taking it to extremes We go through some different attitudes and take you to different places.
There's a lot of long thematic tunes on this album. And some very varied music. It's been happening incrementally since Brave New World.
That's great, after doing it all for this long, to still be figuring stuff out. We could just be bored by it all, but we're obviously not.
At Metacritic , the album has a score of 71 out of based on 15 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews". Many reviewers, such as Metal Hammer , deemed it "a demanding album, but one that most Maiden fans are going to absolutely adore".
The Guardian were more critical of the release, commenting that "with four songs alone clocking in at 40 minutes, The Final Frontier becomes less an exercise in experimentation than old-fashioned endurance, and the hushed-intro-bombastic-chorus dynamic begins to grate a little".
The album was ranked No. Production and performance credits are adapted from the album liner notes  and AllMusic.
