On a side note, we sat in our bridge the other night and watched, on the view screen, Star Trek Phase II, "The Child". If you have not watched this yet it is a must. They have done an incredible job and achieved a new level of quality for a fan film. Great acting, Great story, Great sets, Great CGI, Great directing. It is really like watching a brand new TOS episode. I can't wait for the next episode which as I understand it, won't be long.
That must've been a surreal experience, sitting on the bridge watching a Star Trek episode on the viewscreen.

Re: Star Ship AJAX Production

Just FYI, work is being done to recondition and rewire the old EXETER center seat. It's gotten a little banged up and dirty, but soon it'll look just like new! BTW, does anyone know the dimentions of a commisioning plaque? I'd like to get one made for the AJAX...in fact, I'll take suggestions on what shipyard she was built in...

Fire away!!

Re: Star Ship AJAX Production

Roddenberry.com was selling replicas. The product description should have the dimensions.

Or someone could ask Mike Okuda.

Hey Jim, got a couple of pics to help answer your questions. The first from the lower right corner of the Saladin blueprints.


The second is from the Enterprise Bridge blueprints. It doesn't give exact dimensions but it has a scale so maybe it will get you in the ballpark.


By the way, I Photoshopped an Ajax bridge plaque but it's on my computer that 's now in storage. I'd could dig it out if you'd like me to send it to you.

The reality is that unless you're doing super tight closeups of the button, the difference isn't going to be noticeable. It can become a problem if you lose sight of the set as a film set with a practical function and start treating it like a "museum piece".
But I want to add that this is also the type of thinking that I feel plagues fan films. So overly concerned with inconsequential minutia, such as matching a button detail that won't even really be seen, rather than things that should really matter —*the story they are telling.
I wanted to clarify this. My job is building the studio, I have very little to do with the production. Because we are opening the studio to other fan films we have separated the studio and production into two different projects. To put it simply, I'm building the set for Ajax Studio, the first production to use the studio is going to be Starship Ajax.

Since I don't have things like story writing, casting, costume... to worry about I can and should get the details as close as I can, but believe me there is plenty of small details that I'm letting slide by.

Well, here it is, so the proportions can be figured from there...

Depends on what it is and whether it needs to come to the production in Oklahoma City or to Jim the "Prop" Builder in Vermont. If you don't want to discuss it here email me at richard@starshipajax.com.

Keep it "cannon?"

Oh, canon.

If you want starship shipbuilding facilities, there actually aren't that many to choose from in The Canon.
