Images from the Alien Nine Bonus DVD. The DVD features various behind the scenes footage. The Store section has tips on purchasing it.

A person sits at a very large desk with various screens, large speakers and a control unit with a vast array of sliders, switches and buttons. The three main voice actors, Juri Ihata, Kaori Shimizu, and Shitaya Noriko sit infront of three male members of the production team standing behind them wearing borg cosplay hats. A television playing the Alien Nine show along with a counter.
Timing screen for the voice recordings.

Some of the key members of production staff for the Japanese version of Alien 9 have some impressive credits. Including producer Taro Maki who became president of Genco animation studio. Series planner Sadayuki Murai also wrote for Cowboy Bebop and my other favourite obscure anime series, Kino's Journey.
