Thanks!

There's more to come. RealLife™ has been taking priority recently, but I do have an update almost ready to post.

Re: Space Station Jefferies

A bit of progress.

Mr. Comsol made some good points, so the FJ cargo doors had to go. In addition to the doors,
I have textured the habitat rings and added windows to the outer surfaces.





Still to do: The docking bay and radiator array, the inner habitat ring windows,
and the overall hull markings.

Eventually this station will have a Starbase designation. Since we already have a DSS K-7,
and SS Jefferies is contrary to known Federation naming conventions, I am taking suggestions.
I'd like it to be a Starbase mentioned in TOS dialog, but never shown; ideally one that by implication
is a major one (this is a big, honkin' beast). Ideas, anyone?

Re: Space Station Jefferies

If I researched correctly then the TOS Starbases 4, 10 and 27 had been mentioned by dialogue, had not been shown (neither in EU materials) and are not necessarily a planet.

Not necessarily. There's been several "named" stations (some planet-based), like Jupiter Station, Star Station India, Starbase Earhart, and Starbase Montgomery.

This is of course true; but I was limiting myself to TOS.

I'd like it to be a Starbase, so I'll likely use one of Mr. Comsol's suggestions.

Re: Space Station Jefferies

Almost done.

Here is the rest of the exterior mapped and a good start on the interior of the docking pod. I've given it three landing areas. It is a big hangar. There is one large cargo door in the center and two smaller ones on either side. The four side alcoves are meant to be roll up doors that cover equipment bays.

A bay this large would be difficult to pressurize. Perhaps the alcoves contain docking travel tubes. The original drawings do not indicate any type of door. Perhaps this was an early example of a semi-permiable force field. Any suggestions?

There is more detail to add to the hangar, as well as markings to the exterior.

The original K-7 model just had a black chasm. There was no illumination from within (dark flight deck as in "The Conscience of the King"?) but I'd say that AMT got that right with the model kit by suggesting a physical hangar door (once closed).

As for your Starbase 4 suggestion, I'd be inclined to look for inspiration from the orbital complex in TMP or Space Station Regula in TWOK.

Re: Space Station Jefferies

I would also think at least the capability for a horizontal, shutter-type hangar door would be likely, similar to what you've got on the cargo pods. In fact, the hangar opening isn't all that much bigger.

One difference being that my cargo pods are not pressurized. The containers themselves would be, along with the offices that are built into the outer walls. But the large void in the middle of each pod would remain a vacuum.

I have already built shutter doors for the hangar and will try to get renders up soon.

Pretty cool. What are those gray panels at the sides intended to be?

Roll up doors over equipment bays. The texture is not final. I'll need to make them segmented.
