Re: TMP-era fan productions

We have a "Plasma Conduit Maintenance Center" which is right above Engineering. We also have used a partial set with green screen, but neither of them are "full scale replica." I'd hate to think the cost of creating such a set.

Re: TMP-era fan productions

Yeah, I meant those uniforms. They are definately not common in the fandom. Only a few people seem to really like them.

I was just curious if anyone used them since the title of the threat was TMP-era fan productions, which to me means 2270-2277 (the time of the theoretical second five year mission and the days before the uniform change to all red coats)

FWIW, I like the TMP costumes. They had a nice variety that is lacking elsewhere in the Trek franchise.

I don't like the ones from the first movie, but do like the "Santa Claus" stuff in the rest. Easier to hide your love handles.

Re: TMP-era fan productions

I've noticed quite a few players on Star Trek Online with toons who wear the TMP uniforms.

I don't mind them, myself.

Re: TMP-era fan productions

I tend to like the "Monster Maroons" uniforms, more than the original TMP versions and the TNG style, and just a bit more than the TOS uniforms.

Anyway, as a subtle (or not) change of topic, has anyone tried to figure out what the various displays on the latter movie bridges (specifically V and VI) are? What controls and displays would be required on a starship? Does anyone have any hi-res images of the varied displays shown in those movies? (Yes, I know they had a lot of repetition.)

Re: TMP-era fan productions

Our bridge sets are fairly accurate to Star Trek II, IV, V and VI, depending on what we could capture on the screen or from the glorious HD screen caps at Trekcore. Thomas Sasser provided a good deal of material, as has Rex (Keiichi-K1 at Deviant Art). Other excellent sources include the Cygnus X-1 website. We used CorelDraw to replicate some of the screen caps as graphics, and Photoshop to animate them.

The best example of what we've done can be seen "Duty Bound," the first vignette from Project: Potemkin's second season. John Northam did a fabulous job animating our bridge set: http://youtu.be/zKtAWNufSz8

Re: TMP-era fan productions

While I admire your bridge and your effort to bring us a movie-era production, I am afraid your bridge set isn´t even close to the TWOK bridge set. This is probably most likely due to the size of the set, which seems to be a lot smaller then the real set was, so everything seems to be very much condensed.

Re: TMP-era fan productions

Starshipfan was asking about the displays. They're pretty much spot on, if derived from different films. The smaller size of the set, indeed due to space limitations, mainly resulted in the removal of the empty areas between the consoles.

We recently considered expanding our new sets into an additional 2000' sq ft warehouse adjacent to our current one, but frankly, spending an additional $12,000-$15,000 on a wider set is not prudent for our production at this time. Unless you'd care to make a donation?

Some of them are kinda weirdly sized, though.

Re: TMP-era fan productions

Sadly, not all the sources had measurements, and we had to take some creative license with their sizing. But they are, as I asserted, fairly accurate. YMMV, of course.

Actually, I was referring to the "classic cast" movie era as opposed to TOS or TNG and beyond. I feel they did start to get the look and feel more consistent when they changed to the Monster Maroons. Although, they could never seem to settle on the bridge layout for 1701-A...
