Very sweet! I love the "gemini capsule" shaped pipes.
Star Trek nerd question : This room is starting to look pretty big, will it fit into the deckplans?

It occurs to me that the way you have the ship laid out, aren't the "travel tube/s" close to the center line and shouldn't they be somewhere near the center of this room?

The main fuselage is about 50 feet across at the location I had in mind for this space. Technically, I might have exceeded that in this illustration but I don't think by much.

It occurs to me that the way you have the ship laid out, aren't the "travel tube/s" close to the center line and shouldn't they be somewhere near the center of this room?
I am deviating from the original "travel tube" concept. Given that it's been decided this ship is capable of landing on a planet's surface, I didn't think it would be wise to depend on null-gravity tubes several decks high for getting around the ship. Ladder wells would be better, but still rather dangerous. Lift tubes would be better yet, but would require a lot of space and you'd really need at least two separate shafts.

I decided to move these shafts out of the main fuselage and into the disc section on either side of it. I'm figuring a total of four, two ventral and two dorsal, with a gap between them to allow access to the cargo bays and other areas outside the fuselage. Two of the shafts have lifts and the other two are compact gangways or staggered ladder wells.

So no, no travel tubes passing through the middle of Main Control. However, depending on the cropping of these shots, the access to one of them might be visible way off to the right.

I kinda want there to be a few ladders in there to let the engineers climb up and bang on the pipes and junk above.
I actually had an idea about that. Port and starboard access to the upper level:

Re: Star Ship Polaris

So, in the spirit of "Jefferies Tube", might I suggest Vektor Conduits?

Re: Star Ship Polaris

Re travel tubes, shafts, etc. I for one wouldn't mind seeing such a thing passing through part of the room. I've toured enough Navy ships to know that you jam the equipment in wherever it fits.

re the ladder. You put them exactly where I imagined them!

I'll work with Dennis to see what we can do about getting some greenscreen footage of engineers to put farther back in the space. I have my own simple greenscreen here so if I had a costume or two I could shoot this stuff myself. Hey, Dennis, ship me back the mesh engineering jumpsuit and a Suarez suit!

Re: Star Ship Polaris

Rough beginnings of the interior of the lander module:



As far as I know, we will never see this in the film, but some exterior details relate to the interior layout so I figured it would be useful to know what it looks like. Not to mention being another useful addition to my portfolio.

Incidentally, the intent here is that the pilot and copilot chairs as well as the console in front of them actually tilts from the upright position shown here to a horizontal "takeoff" position.

Re: Star Ship Polaris

How about we call service tunnels Vektor Orifices? Sounds legit to me!

Got to say these engine and lander cockpit modules are quite impressive looking.

Re: Star Ship Polaris

Well, we didn't specifically shoot anything to go into the lander, but I had a though on how we might get a shot of someone piloting it. There's a plot point about loading something bigish into the ship (we can discuss in email as I don't want to give away to many plot points here), so we should probably talk about that.

Last one on the lander for now. Back to engineering.
