Re: Every Star Trek Blueprint in existence!?!

That's a little odd - I had a look at the "Big Jim" plans last week and they don't seem that accurate to the model (the engineering docking port is too high).

They're lovely to look at, but that one point niggled me.

Specifically the "Big Jim Slade" refit plans.
Wow... It's pretty sad when folk can't take the time to do their own work, instead pirating that of others....

Re: Every Star Trek Blueprint in existence!?!

Why are they called "Big Jim Slade" and what do they have to do with Kerr? I'm confused.

Re: Every Star Trek Blueprint in existence!?!

Don't know why they're called that, but Gary saw them and realized that they're the plans he drew, stolen and renamed. He has overlayed the Slade plans with his own originals and has no doubt they're one and the same.

Re: Every Star Trek Blueprint in existence!?!

Note: The above posts constitute my entire involvement in this controversy - simply relaying Gary's concerns to the owners of Cygnus/LCARS, because it made sense for them to know. I have no dog in this fight. My involvement is done. Please leave me out of future Facebook rants and threats.

Of course now the allegations made here have been proven false conclusively. The navy men had the good sense to check the facts and to discuss the issue in private until they were sure of the situation.
If the fact-checking work has been done and proven, can you share what was found?

Not if it is done in the fashion of the original post.

If the issue exists on another board, between members of the other board, it has no place being dragged out here, as well.

Re: Every Star Trek Blueprint in existence!?!

So just my two cents here since I'm the person who runs Cygnus-X1.Net where Big Jim Slade's prints are currently being shown...

I've talked to both Jim and Gary separately on this issue, along with several others from both of their camps. There are clearly two sides of the story here and, frankly, it's not up to me to decide who is right and who is wrong. This is not a clear-cut issues. Gary presented me with details that show how Jim's plans must have been copied from his, yet other analysis show that not to be the case.

So I may or may not remove the plans from my site. I have more information from several people to review.

Thanks-

-John

@Bernard you are AMAZING!! but i'm trying to put the pieces together. that link shows "an early version of unigraphics" do you mean autocad? was autocad an early version of unigraphics? Also, why was los Alamos labs producing these images? I have an original framed autocad blueprint of the image from the link. what do I have?
AutoCAD and Unigraphics (now called NX) are two different CAD packages, and neither was an early version of the other. As for your framed blueprint, does it actually say "AutoCAD" on it?
Yes, actually its says
"MC AUTO UNIGRAPHICS
CAD/CAM DRAWING"
