USS Enterprise bridge turbolift area schematic

Does anyone know if this diagram is available for sale? I didn't think it would be this difficult to find something so simple and cool :-) Im looking for a higher quality other than a poster too...maybe a plexi-glass type item

Thanks,
~bOb

I have NO idea how you got such a monstrous address for the image you were trying to link to, but this is it.

I see you're new here, buy just FYI you're not supposed to embed images from websites which aren't yours (like a photobucket account, etc.). Also inline images don't show up in posts from users with only a few posts to their credit (for SPAM control reasons I suspect).

Re: USS Enterprise bridge turbolift area schematic

Thanks! Yes that is the one I'm looking for and thanks for the advice about imbedding pictures. As you so cleverly pointed out Im just a cadet :-) Do you know where this might be availble for purchase?

Re: USS Enterprise bridge turbolift area schematic

You mean something like this??? PM me if interested.



This graphic is very interesting because it is so wonky. Not sure if the ship design was nailed down yet when this was made. I can imagine that early in production they were constructing the set and trying to pin down the dimensions of the ship design. They probably thought that nobody would ever notice that the turbolift graphic was off, lol. Boy were they wrong!

Enterprise was originally a smaller ship in The Cage, with a much smaller crew, correct? This graphic makes sense in that context.

Sadly, that diagram is pretty inaccurate compared to the one Shaw drew up.

There's supposed to be turboshafts in the pylons?

Re: USS Enterprise bridge turbolift area schematic

If that were the case then, according to the top view, the Bridge apparently has to be a turbo lift car depot (and the ventral saucer dome, too).

You may find the corresponding discussion in this earlier thread interesting: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.ph...49#post8682949

Re: USS Enterprise bridge turbolift area schematic

The reason the bridge is in red is because the diagram is on the bridge and so this serves as a "you are here" indicator. Any other diagrams like this elsewhere on the ship would no doubt have the corresponding deck level and/or area highlighted in red.

An example would be the pressure hull compartment diagram from “Day of the Dove” which shows those levels accessible in that situation highlighted in red, as opposed to those areas in which the rest of the crew are sealed off in, shown in different colors.

But the entire ventral saucer dome is also in red (accurately shown in Shaw's reproduction of the schematic), and they are most definitely not there.

This schematic could merely serve as a damage indicator like this one from TWOK.

The pressure schematic is a can of worms. Notice that according to the side view of the saucer the entire saucer is pressurized but this contradicts the top view. And there should be at least one level that's pressurized until the hangar deck, but there isn't according to the side view.

^^^You're assuming you know what the colors on that diagram mean.

Re: USS Enterprise bridge turbolift area schematic

According to the side view all saucer sections feature orange "hull pressure com[partmen]ts". Since this is the inhabitated area of the ship it stands to reason that most or all compartments there are pressurized which is neither necessary for the warp nacelles or usually the flight or hangar deck.

Re: USS Enterprise bridge turbolift area schematic

Again, that's an assumption. Maybe it means sections which are related or connected to the same pressurization systems (or none). There's no way to know for sure.
