I think this one is very problematical. It's an established fact that the closer a robotic or in our case, rendered "human" gets to reality, the more unsettling and "creepier" the effect is. In a similar vein, the closer the attempt, the more likely a viewer is to react critically to the effect.

So whilst it's a bit counter-intuitive, we might be better off with crew figures whose mouths do not move all all, rather than a "nearly realistic" implementation of crew speech with moving lips.

Just watch an old 1960's "Thunderbirds" episode!
