Every Star Trek Blueprint in existence!?!
 
Hey guys, Check this out while you can. This appears to be every blueprint ever published that I have ever seen (and some I hadn't).

http://www.cygnus-x1.net/links/lcars...ints-main2.php

I get the feeling this site isn't quite legal as I am sure the artists of said blueprints would be upset to find them online for easy download instead of for sale. Still, a great resource while it lasts...

This is revolting!

I was wondering why no one was buying my blueprints! I'm sure that Casimiro and Sinclair are equally shocked that this site is hurting the sales of their work.

:rolleyes:

Just out of curiosity... Do you want to buy a copy? :techman:

For the ones currently for sale, only samples appear to be offered. If you know of a set still currently for sale which is offered in full resolution on the site, contact its administrator and I am sure he will accommodate you.

It's a great site, even if many of the fan-produced blueprints are more notable for their shortcomings than their successes.

We already know about this - The owner of the site posts here on occasion. :guffaw::guffaw:

Obviously not every ST blueprint in existence - I know of a few omissions - but it is a valuable reference anyway. ;)

Yeah, he'd been "called to the carpet", so to speak, for making available ones that were for sale before. He's since made amends. But it is a good resource!

So here we go again :)

As others have already pointed out, those blueprints which are currently for sale (which is illegal in and of itself, but that's another matter) are only represented on my site with limited details (usually all of the thumbnail images along with a couple of full-resolution images).

This is done with the full permission - and appreciation - of the artists. I'm helping to spread the word about their blueprints so all can benefit.

As for Charles and Alan -- they approached me about having their blueprints represented on the site - as have many other illustrators.

My site was created to serve as a resource and a means to celebrate the incredible work the fans have created over the years. It was NOT created with with any malicious intent towards the artists.

I hope you can all find it useful.

Let's see, I've got MSDs for Danube class, three classes of shuttlecraft, and 15 classes of starship and might submit them to Cygnus one of these days. It's somewhere on my to-do list. I haven't even put together a gallery of them for my own Web site. Too busy.

Cygnus has a lot, but not everything.

Huh, well, I have been lurking here for at least 2 years and don't remember seeing anything about the site before.
Kudos for getting the permissions on everything posted onsite! I actually have a few of the older one and think I will go back to your site now and pick some choice new images for my desktop background!:)

More to the point... I don't think that they have ever tried to sell their work (and neither have I for that matter)... so your site sure hasn't hurt sales. :techman:

Besides, it has been around long enough that I doubt anyone is worried about it not lasting. I'm surprised that it isn't better known, as it is one of my favorite Trek sites.

When ever I reference any of my finished works, I link to them on that site (such as here). It is a great resource in my opinion.

Since this seems to be on the up-and-up, and it is undoubtedly a valuable resource for modelers, artists and fans alike, I'll go ahead and sticky it - at least for awhile.

Re: Every Star Trek Blueprint in existence!?!
 
Thanks Ptrope- I appreciate it.

On another note - and something I was going to post on a few other forums within TrekBBS - is a recent addition I've made to the site which contains blueprints/schematics/rough drawings of the little know 'Enterprise That Never Was' which also goes by the NX-1701.

You can see the prints here http://www.cygnus-x1.net/links/lcars...-nx-1701-a.php

A question for those of you out there: Does anyone else have these blueprints? My set, which I purchased long ago as part of a larger Ebay auction, is incomplete. I was able to piece together some missing pages from other material that also dealt with the NX-1701 but I'm fairly certain I'm missing a couple of important sheets.

I'd really appreciate it If anyone could shed some additional light on them..

Wow - 2 posts in one day from me... Starlock must be in shock :)

Whoa, whoa, back up! Some people actually charge for this stuff? And here I was giving it away like a sap.

It's actually illegal to sell it. Paramount would pitch a fit if they knew about it.

I'm looking for interior blueprints of Deep Space Nine or set construction information for the series.

Any Ideas?

BTW - I might be able to contribute a couple of additions to the site. I just need to see how the scanner I'd have to use treats them.
