Re: TOS Enterprise Interiors -- Unreal 3 Engine

Fracking impressive! At some other threads there had been the discussion whether TAS should be redone in CGI (but - of course - keep the original voices of the original cast), and Donny illustrates the potential for such a thing, too.

Seeing the insignia that close I couldn't help to wonder what these might symbolize.
  • The star is apparently a star whose top extension could symbolize warp speed or to expand beyond the known
  • The Science Division seems to display what could be a 2D suggestion of a sphere
  • The Engineering / Services Division features an odd pentagon that allows moving inside and out of the center. Looks like it conveys a sense of protection in the center, either for a starship operating in the icy cold vacuum of space or as a shield against attacks (security personnel)
