Very cool! I assume the rectangular doohickey just forward of the arboretum is the emergency turbolift connecting the main bridge and battle bridge?
Yup. - Rick

Re: Sternbach blueprints question

Rick, do you think there's going to be a digital release of these? Also, what program do you use to do these?

Also, if you don't mind me asking, I always wondered why Deck 9 of the battle section was basically blank, with just an outline of where the bits on Deck 8 were (ie battle bridge, the rear section with the phasers).

Wow, this stuff is looking good! I hope you can talk CBS into a print release of this update very soon.

Re: design package: Seems like there is no standard package to design with - I asked Doug Drexler recently and he said he uses Adobe Illustrator.

Re: Sternbach blueprints question

Question for Rick: was there any thought out into the emergency turboshaft detail we see here? Any thought on why it would be different from the "standard" shaft we see below it?

That's why they didn't saucer sep much -- the one rectangular turbo shaft tends to get easily damaged during a battle.

I don't know why the emergency turbo was rectangular; maybe just to make it different and special. You'd have to ask Andy Probert about that one.

As to the mag coil liners in my vector illo, it *was* to make it look special.

Hooray for specialness! Though for all we know, the squareness was to accommodate extra inertial dampeners to counteract the extra jostling from the higher speeds that lift went at, of course, to get everyone down there soonest. Likewise, the mag coil liners were specially made for that extra speed, and to get everyone around right angle corners a la car from the 1984 show "Automan".

There, that feels better.

Re: Sternbach blueprints question

Heh... I wandered off and started nitpicking the hull thickness issues over in Trek Tech and look what happens...

Anyway, the screen shots of the revised layouts look great! Thanks for posting those, Rick. But, I don't suppose you were able to deal more with the varying deck height issue?

As I've contemplated putting this together in Blender, I took some time and did create generally uniform deck heights throughout both hulls - worked out fairly well, really. But of course, I had to pretty much ignore the hull facade to do it...

Re: Sternbach blueprints question

Say graffy, since you can see people in his elevation view the hull thickness can't be more than a head and a should or about a foot and a half (estimate).

Re: Sternbach blueprints question

Given the back and forth we've had in the hull thread, I don't know that I'd consider the hull lines representative of the actual thickness at *any* particular point.

But yeah, that seems reasonable.

That actually answers my question about the shape and design of the windows - I have never thought of them as skylights before!
