- Aside from these specific items, she has served as supervising producer on most of the special features produced for the 2001-2005 "Special Edition" DVD releases of nine of the first ten Star Trek films (Star Trek: The Motion Picture – The Director's Edition being the exception), in conjuncture with special feature Director Donald R. Beck and Producer Stephen R. Wolcott, her most frequent collaborators for Star Trek in that period of time.
As a fresh twenty-three year old freelancer, Duignan started out in the motion picture industry when she was introduced to George Lucas by John Dykstra in 1975, landing her first job later on as a production staffer on the production of Star Wars: A New Hope (1977). She followed Dykstra when he left ILM to work on the pilot of the original Battlestar Galactica television series (1978) as production assistant. She, however, did not follow Dykstra when he formed a company of his own, Apogee, Inc., but instead opted to return to ILM, where her first assignment was as production supervisor on The Wrath of Khan. She stayed on at ILM until 1987 with two more credits to her name as production supervisor/associate producer for Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (1983) and Star Wars: Ewok Adventures – Caravan of Courage (1984). Most of her duties at the time, however, were taken up as member of the senior staff, among others as operations manager and as director of marketing.
From 1987 until 1990, she worked at ABC Television, producing documentaries and specials, among others The Storm Over Amerika (1987) and War and Remembrance: A Living History (1988), before joining Paramount Pictures/CBS Television in 1990. A non Star Trek documentary she worked upon during her Star Trek years, was Platforms and Polyester (2007). In between she, again for ABC, worked as producer on the television show Bump in the Night (1994-1995).
In 2008 she joined, as visual effects executive producer, the visual effects company Kerner Optical, split off from ILM three years earlier. In that capacity she has worked on productions like Terminator Salvation, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Avatar (all three 2009), Iron Man 2, Killers, The Last Airbender, The Other Guys (these four 2010), I Am Number Four, Priest, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Cowboys & Aliens, and Abduction (these six 2011), her last 2012 credits being Big Miracle, 21 Jump Street and Red Dawn.
