MGagen here, with another 3D project.
Many of you may recall that Matt Jefferies began the task of designing Space Station K7 before he hit on the idea of using components from a rejected NASA habitat model. Here is his original design:
There's no need to guess how big it is; it's one of the few examples of MJ placing real-world dimensions on a design. You probably recognize a few features that were borrowed for Wrath of Khan
's Regula One outpost. Even though this design didn't make it to the screen in The Trouble with Tribbles
, there's no reason it shouldn't make an excellent TOS-era space station of its own.
So here are the beginnings of my 3D interpretation of this "lost" Jefferies original:
