The new DS9 -- photo gallery

Doug Drexler has just posted a Facebook gallery with dozens of images of the novels' new Deep Space Nine, including behind-the-scenes material about the design and rendering of the station (by Trek legend Andrew Probert and digital artist "deg," who I believe posts on the BBS as deg3D), and close-ups on many details.

DS9 gallery

So what do you all think?

Cool! That'll certainly help my mediocre imagination skills the next time I'm reading a DS9-R-Relaunch novel.

Re: The new DS9 -- photo gallery

So where is the Memorial Park? From the text it seems to be up near the hub? Or is it at the top of the sphere?

As always, anything Doug and Andy help design is packed with neat little details, but this design just doesn't look good. I think the size of the central sphere and the docking ring make it look smaller than it actually is.

Re: The new DS9 -- photo gallery

I don't like it, looks far too friendly and safe, its an iSpaceStation. DS9 should be dark, forbidding, mysterious and dangerous...

Very nice! I was right about how the Galaxy-class ship is docked

Re: The new DS9 -- photo gallery

Overall, I like it. I'm good with the station being slightly more Federation/Starfleet looking. I actually would have been fine with the new DS9 being a full-on Starfleet 'space dock' looking thing.

I enjoyed the 'behind the scenes' look at how it all came about as well.

Re: The new DS9 -- photo gallery

The details really make the station. The close-up details give it a lot more commonality both with existing Federation designs AND with the original DS9. Things like the "Sail tower" phaser strips look like the stuff from the older design's retrofitted weapons fit.

Ugh, Facebook. Oh well, hopefully they'll find their way somewhere else someday. I sure miss Drex Files...
