The visual effects for Babylon 5's pilot were provided by a studio named Foundation Imaging, using a series of Commodore Amiga computers and NewTek's Video Toaster technology. For their work on the pilot, Foundation Imaging won the 1993 Emmy Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement In Special Visual Effects.


Two of the show's principal actors give their impressions of the revolutionary technology.

For me, the highlight is seeing actual Amigas in shows.

Amiga 1000s in original Miami Vice anyone?

But when the 1000 made an appearance in Stranger Things, that was the final straw - I had to have a 1000. But as you may have seen, I put a 1200 motherboard inside to make it "modern", easier to upgrade and more enjoyable to use.

I keep saying someone who has the software skills should reshape the ReAmiga 1200 motherboard shape to fit Amiga 1000 case without case modifications. How amazing would that be?
