Re: Decoration in Voyager's Briefing Room

This reminds me of the way TD Possum always analyzed the backgrounds of photos in the sexy janeway thread.

I'm so used to watching the show I never stop to look at the set decoration... although I do like the Leonardo DaVinci drawing (I assume "he" did it) in her ready room.

Re: Decoration in Voyager's Briefing Room

It would be so cool to have stuff done by a hologram. You could even tweak it, "I want Leonardo to do a sketch from his blah blah period but make it more.. abstract."

Re: Decoration in Voyager's Briefing Room

I want to hear what Dix thinks these things are. Unless an object's specifically referred to, we can assume it's just there to add interest to a wall, whether for the characters or the camera.

I notice such details. It's not like I'm looking for such things and analyzing every frame. When a certain detail catches my eye I wonder what it is. In Star Trek we can often see such details, like models of ships, shuttles, paintings, or artwork. For example, the observation lounge of the Enterprise D (and E) had sculptures of all previous Enterprise ships on the wall, which I think was a nice little detail.

Well, I already said what I think it is. My guess is that it's some abstract art. It looks like a decoration. But I couldn't find any specific information about it. There's only this on Memory Alpha:

The briefing room of the USS Voyager was decorated with various objects of art.

Re: Decoration in Voyager's Briefing Room

If a wall item isn't interacted with in some way (through action or in dialogue), it's probably safe to assume it's wall art. Device props usually had a few blinky lights on them. In the 24th century anyway. Kirk's Enterprise had wall art in some rooms, and the corridors and engineering usually had some odd pieces usually thought of as equipment.

Re: Decoration in Voyager's Briefing Room

It's a terrible art choice. Why make art that looks like devices when you're on a ship surrounded by devices?

I've been asking the same thing for years about why people surrounded by gum trees have paintings of gum trees hanging on their wall.

You'd be amazed at how many paintings of ships there are on a navy vessel. Or worse... plain old paintings of the ocean.

BWA etc..

I reckon if you had a reset control in your own house most people would be totally out of control with it.
