Banchoff with StarTrek:TNG animation Project Team at Prime
Tom Banchoff with a team of collaborators at Prime Computers, Inc. working in 1987 on animation for an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation called "The Stranger."
At the center is Nick Thompson, then a freshman working that summer with Tom. Nick later helped to develop the
fnord3D and 4D graphics software, one of the first interactive programs used by Banchoff.
At the lower left is David Margolis, by then a Brown graduate in Mathematics ('82), who worked with Tom on the project.
