DB 5, huh? Is that a reference to Connery's Aston Martin from GOLDFINGER?

Re: concept art and set photos!

Okay, HERE is my annotated, perspective-corrected composite of the "powerwall". It's huge.

HERE is the plain version. Also huge.

HERE is the early prototype version, with annotations.

Enjoy! Feel free to point out any errors or omissions.

Can anyone identify what's written below the screen of the Narada hangar and Jellyfish? It looks Welsh.

I did, that's how I got the 1024, they were 500 before that. Somethings not going right.

You might have to click the magnifying glass one more time.

I'm glad you like it (and that it works, I was cursing Photobucket for a second). It's got to be my all-time favourite Trek graphic. A million Trek nods and not one Buckaroo Banzai reference.

Fine work deconstructing and analyzing that, King. Ditto on the unmakin' the Makin.

Re: concept art and set photos!

Suddenly had a thought: might DB-5 mean "Docking Bay Five" rather than refer to the name of the design?

I'm wondering if the DB-5 designation stands for 'Docking Bay 5' perhaps, or something along those lines?
^^^ @ Praetor - Yep, that thought occured to me a few posts back as well...

'great minds' and all that...

That sounds like a good bet. (Besides, if it had been a James Bond reference, you'd have people grousing that the movie used a DB5 to show off Aston-Martin's newest model, while in the novel the chapter title was "Thoughts in a DB III".)

Interestingly, the designation next to the USS Enterprise appears to be VH-5 / VB-5 - so I'm not quite sure (if DB means Docking Bay) what this designation could mean...

(Vehicle Bay 5, Vehicle Hanger 5???)

The smaller constitutition class starship (the mini-connie) has what appears to be the designation: AF / AP, while the even smaller Excelsior starship has VB (?)

The plot thickens...
