How bout it CTM? Are you game? I'd even help out. Maybe 46 decks is a little much for one person.
let me finish this project before I move onto the next one. I'm actually working on some stuff for a Loknar (FASA) re-work for an RPG group, and would probably build that, then Excelsior, then I might be open to a Galaxy Class. Truthfully though, the Galaxies are just too darned big. It doesn't sound like a fun project, it sounds like a tedious project.
I think as you.
I was actualy wondering if you would go aver the Excelsior.
To me Galaxy is nothing more two ships in one. I would love to chart out it's EPS system, ODN relays and Jefferies tubes. The floor plan would be just the begining.

[nerd]Actually it's 42 decks.[/nerd]
Oh that's right 42, thanks.

Sounds like a job for some kind of WikiCAD application where a group freely contributes time to laying out complicated 3D models. You might not be interested in closet spaces on deck 13, but I promise you there's a geek out there somewhere who would delight in the opportunity.

Unfortunately, there are also scoundrels out there who would put obscene materials into a Trek model -- or worse, Star Wars stuff! But, a properly maintained wiki is also one with editorial policies to deal with ruffians like that.

Re: WIP - TMP Enterprise, deck by deck

Not to derail the thread from the NCC-1701, but I would love to see a Galaxy-class build-up, deck-by-deck. That's the ship I grew up with, and if there were a 3-d walkthrough of it, that would make my year.

Back to the 1701 - how's F-deck coming along there?

F-deck? F-deck? I haven't even finished G-deck yet! My paying job keeps getting in the way.

Tell me about it....
That's why I took off Friday to have a 4 day weekend to design a new Stargate ship.

Why the same thing he needs with a cracked pot like me .

Now, if only he would help my Hokies win tonight's game...

Re: WIP - TMP Enterprise, deck by deck

I built the quarters on the outer ring of G-deck tonight. Still have the Rec Deck, lower deck of Impluse Engineering, the neck interface, and the Transporter Rooms/Sick Bay/Laboratories to build.

The void space is where the hull goes concave on the underside of the saucer.

Re: WIP - TMP Enterprise, deck by deck

Very nice! I like it! As for the two turbolift shafts hanging out there - those are just for neck passthrough, right? And the three hallways that deadend in the center portion - are those to the outer hull access, or something else? And the extra hallway? And the four areas around the saucer's edge - are those lounges?

Likely simple questions, but I'm just having a hard time placing those bits in the grand scheme of the ship. You're doing great work on the ship.

Turbolifts hanging in space - yes, in the neck pass-through. Actually in Impulse Engineering.

Hallways extending from the core outward connect to storage and "equipment spaces" where the floor-to-ceiling height is below standard.

The "extra" hallway would run from the back of Sick-bay to one side of the Rec Deck. It is so positioned on the 2-d plans, but will not fit (it would extend through the concave portion of the saucer underside). In my wire-frame it is in red - indicating to me that I need to see about rerouting that.

The four areas around the outer edge are RCS thrusters, fuel, and equipment areas. There will be windows in the corridors between them, but I have not yet put them in.

Re: WIP - TMP Enterprise, deck by deck

I think as the saucer develops my mind will be blown wide open once again by the detail be presented as it was in the engineering section.

Could be. This deck and the next are the critical pieces. I will probably build the Rec Deck and Impulse Engineering on both decks at the same time - meaning I will leave them as voids until I finish the remainder of F and G decks.

Sick bay, the brig, the transporter rooms etc. will take a fair bit more time on G deck. At my current pace and other workload, it will be some weeks before I finish them.

Re: WIP - TMP Enterprise, deck by deck

So which bridge are you going to use to cap this baby off?

TMP, TWOK/TSFS/TVH or TFF/TUC?

Re: WIP - TMP Enterprise, deck by deck

he's been using TMP schematics so I imagine it will be the orignal refits bridge. I'm sure he won't go to every detail on it though.

Re: WIP - TMP Enterprise, deck by deck

Well, I got some time to start adding transporter rooms. At least two of these will change into Assault and Security Transporters before this deck is completed.

^^a closeup^^


more to come when I get the time....
