Evans and Sutherland's "Digistar System" and "Picture System" were used to generate the star field images and tactical screens used on various ship displays in 1982's Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. John Warnock, one of the "Picture System" designers, left Evans and Sutherland shortly after the film's production. He co-founded a software company that developed and marketed a programming language utilizing technology originally created for rendering the vector graphic-based displays. The company was Adobe, and the software was PostScript.
