Re: Space Station Jefferies

Absolutely gorgeous work.

She looks the tiniest bit shiny in a few spots around the rounded corners, but I can live with it. Actually, the effect works out well for the hangar bay floor...

I like this quite a bit. Very good work.

This would not feel out of place in an actual TOS/TOS-R episode.

Re: Space Station Jefferies

Well, it's just about complete. Textures have been adjusted, markings added, as well as lights. Here are some views:







As you can see from the markings, I have tried to distinguish it from K-7, which is a civilian station. We never saw what kind of markings a Starfleet facility would carry, so I've used my imagination. The "WP" stands for "Warehouse Pod."

How big is it? Jefferies specifies 1800 feet from top to bottom on his sketch. Here are some scale comparison views next to the Enterprise and DSS K-7:





This has been a really fun project. For years I have wanted to bring Matt Jefferies' more ambitious, original concept for K-7 to life. I think it makes a fine Starbase in its own right.

Re: Space Station Jefferies

Most impressive! Great job!

I just have one minor suggestion: Earth Spacedock (ST III) featured several small hangars or cargo bays.

One on the exterior read "12", one on the inside (next to Excelsior) read "34". Looks to me like those bays are in general distinguished by numbers, not letters.

This is really an impressive piece of art. I love how work like this really expands the Star Trek universe as we know it.

Re: Space Station Jefferies

Thanks, guys. Most of the credit goes to Matt Jefferies. You can't go far wrong if you stick to his designs.

Here is a desktop sized render "At Starbase 4." Enjoy!

Thanks for the desktop. It's wonderful how natural they look together!

Re: Space Station Jefferies

I like how you handled the weathering on the Enterprise, too. That's a good 'un.
