    Star Trek: The Next Generation Screen Used Skeleton Prop from "Loud as a Whisper" (1989). A Johns Hopkins functional model of the human skeleton with hanging display, used on screen in the second season TNG episode "Loud as a Whisper" to show Riva's chorus - a three-person interpretation team - being incinerated. Painted by visual effects supervisor Dan Curry with a bloody-ash color scheme to resemble residual burnt soft tissue. The skeleton was aligned with each character's position, photographed separately on a blue screen, and composted into the disintegration scene with animation one by hand. The skeleton measures approximately 19", with the display measuring 22" x 8" x 6". Includes original teacher's guide booklet. Fine condition.
