The Art of Star Trek: Reanimated - The Sequel
 
Just thought I'd post a couple new shots, now that I'm starting to find the time to do a bit more modeling again. These are WIPs of the Klingon briefing room, seen in "The Time Trap" in TAS; the general layout of the room is based upon what was seen in the episode, but I'm trying to flesh out the design a bit. There will be considerably more detail when this is done, as there will be the equivalents of Enterprise's tabletop viewer and comm stations, as well as hardware and comm screens on the walls and at the doorways.

The chairs used are nothing like those in the episode; I designed them with this project in mind, and added a more robust chair on the long edge of the table where I consider the ship's captain would normally sit, in the place of honor.

Standard chair
Captain's chair (removed the arms for the briefing room)

It's hard to see in this shot, but the briefing room has a cathedral ceiling, with a large lighting module hanging directly over the table; the image from the episode gave me the impression that this room was considerably larger and more impressive than Starfleet's utilitarian architecture.

I don't know- those chairs look a little too comfy for Klingons... How about some spikes.

Seriously- looks good. The steps up seem a little too much. I didn't see that ep. Where they there in it?

They did appear. Ptrope provided an image link just under his render, but one can easily miss it. Here's the link displayed a bit more obviously:

BTW, Ptrope, that is impressive and surprisingly close to the original Filmation design.

Sincerely,

Bill

:D Actually, I was trying for a look that would be in keeping with much of the design from TOS - these chairs look like they could possibly be redressed designer chairs, like the Burke chairs used for Enterprise - I suppose I could go with solid wood or stone chairs ;). (XCalPro, who has many Poser freebies for Star Trek, modeled the exact chairs from "The Time Trap" that turned out great! And they look a LOT less comfortable :lol: )

Thanks! If you look along the bottom of the linked screencap, you can see that the table is on a raised platform in the cartoon. :thumbsup:

Thanks, Redfern! I wanted to provide continuity with the animated episode, but as you well know, I'm not exactly restricting this to just a 3D 'enhancement' of the original Filmation artwork - the inspiration, along with the appearance of TOS Enhanced, was seeing the original animated series and thinking, "Man, these stories were pretty good, but, sadly, the visuals haven't really stood the test of time." ;) YMMV, of course, but I'd just like to see what potential lies in approaching the visual side with more advanced technology and no real budgetary or time restrictions, while also keeping in mind TOS, especially, as a natural "barrier" beyond which the production design shouldn't extend too drastically. That being said, it's probably paramount (pun intended ;)) to show a shot of the STR Enterprise bridge, to demonstrate just how far I'm willing to go, even with these restrictions:

Regarding the Enterprise's bridge:

Did Sulu's helm station still have that hooded viewfinder from TOS' seasons 2 and 3?

Ptrope August 28 2007 02:49 AM

Re: The Art of Star Trek: Reanimated - The Sequel
 
Yes, it did, at least in this episode, and I have to model it (and finish the graphics for all of the various stations) before I can offer this bridge as a freebie. (BTW, not seen here, this bridge also has the front exit on the port side, with a curved corridor outside - far from canon, of course ;) - along with a widescreen main viewer).

Wow! I have not seen that pic before (of the bridge). Great work. I'm not a huge fan ot TAS, but great work.

Why is the nav/helm brown in front?

Klingon conferance room is way cool!

Because animated Kirk wants his helm to match the naugahyde on his armrests. :D

Great job Ptrope !

Ya know, call me crazy, but I never really noticed that before!

It's been a few months since I 'took' that picture, and I need to redo it, anyway, with the newer, cooler chairs (chardman's), but I do recall that I had a blueish spotlight shooting back from the viewscreen to cast light on the bridge as if the screen itself were doing it - the console is orange, but the blue light makes it look brown (elementary color wheel stuff :) )

I'd love to see these, but my browser will not load your page and my AV software has fits. Any suggestions?

Glad to see that this still has a pulse. I thought it was dead in the water. Nice work on the conference room, Ptrope. I eagerly await more updates/pictures...
