Shaw, I thought I was nuts tackling the TOS and TAS shuttlecraft, but going over this thread you are certifiable.

Well done.

I think that depends on how much progress I eventually make. Right now the final goal can seem pretty far off. But I also have to wonder if I was in my right mind when I started this.

By comparison your TOS shuttlecraft has reached a high degree of refinement.


One of the things I can share is how I've decided to do the internal arrangement... illustrated by what didn't work while sketching this out.


The failure of this sketch of cabins on deck 5 was assuming that I knew the positions of the radial corridors before putting the cabins in. The cabins are pretty much fixed in size, and even with the option of shared bathrooms I realized after this attempt that I should arrange the cabins first and only restrict the radial corridors so that they match up with the corridors of the other compartments. That little bit of freedom actually makes a world of difference.

Things left out of that diagram include the impulse engine arrangement, assignment of anything at all to the aft quadrants of ring 1 and the layout of sickbay in ring 0.

Re: Another fan attempt at TOS deck plans

Just to clarify, the red lines are the corridors, right?

Yeah... but I've decided not to be as restrictive about the placement of the radial ones (which were originally set at 22.5, 45 and 67.5 degrees).

Re: Another fan attempt at TOS deck plans

Beautiful... I love watching this evolve.

On a side note, I've always thought it must suck to have a cabin next to a turbolift shaft. As sound proof as they might make it, you know they must hear or feel something.

I love that layout. It is so much more elegant than what I had in my head.

Yes Shaw is doing a tremendous job here.

Just have to say, "Great Job!" This thread is one of the reasons I joined this forum. I have tons of TOS stuff on the back burner and this thread got me excited to start working on them again.

Re: Another fan attempt at TOS deck plans

This is my most recent sketch of the cabins on decks 5 and 6...


Even though I haven't sketched out deck 4 yet, the number of cabins in ring 1 of that deck should be similar to the number in ring 1 of deck 6.

Also, you guys might notice that there is a ton of room across the corridor from the cabins in ring 4 on deck 6. That area isn't deep enough for cabins (like what we saw in the show), but there is a lot of room for something else before the deck narrows to a height shorter than normal use.

Re: Another fan attempt at TOS deck plans

Now, are we talking "cabins" as in crew quarters, or just generic rooms for any purpose?

This is all strictly crew accommodations at this point. All of those cabins are based on a generic form factor derived from the original set plan like seen in this image...


As most of the crew doubles up (depending on rank) there may be open cabins that could also be used as shared office space as well. But the main idea is to use the decks specified for crew accommodations to house most of the crew.

There is obviously still a lot of open space, but I am attempting to be conservative at this point (better safe than sorry).

I also made sure that the corridor in ring 4 of deck 6 made a complete loop... I figure this would make for a nice jogging track at certain times of day.

Could be that during the first season the Captain and senior officers quarters were located on the saucer edge with windows. Reason being
that the Real officer quarters were being refurbished by engineering at the
time.

Would those windows even match the window sizes and locations on the hull?
