    Speaking of smart phone communicators, here's a little something I whipped up a while back trying to design a more Trek fitting JJ communicator:
    [​IMG]
    The button on the left is to open the flap and to talk (it's essentially a walkie-talkie, press the button to open channel.) The buttons on the right are for volume, when closed it adjusts the chirp, when open it adjusts the volume of the speaker. The light blue displays are for power, signal, frequency, and the one at the bottom flashes when you're getting a call (along with chirp). The Green power button is to turn the comm on and off, the red target one is to scan for a signal. The middle grey part is a small "mouse wheel" that adjusts frequency range. Oh, and the dark grey part at the top is the antennae and the black square in the middle is to access it's internal components.

    Inspiration was a Razor phone.

    It's cool, but I think the power button and the button with the crosshairs are too obviously like cellphone buttons in shape.

    That's really, really cool.

    The second one's broken, unfortunately, but I'm sure it's cool too. ;)

    Thought I'd throw something into this thread. Not sure exactly what it is, or why...
    As if somebody got stoned in 1982 while looking through a Pontiac brochure, and drew this...:)

    Apparently it's aerodynamic, perhaps the whole thing lands (instead of using those damned transporters).
    All done up in "StarFleet Red".

    Lorna, I like your Excelsior design, though to me it looks like the Starfleet version of a luxury liner.

    Very cool design, with or without the red color! The paneling design make it look to me like something out of the '70s or '80s.

    Thanks guys.

    You know, Kaiser, I've always been intrigued about the whole civilian side of Trek. Certainly not the kind of stuff for a series or book, but...you know. What DID "normal" people do with their lives in that universe? Save up some credits, build a nice ride, perhaps? Have it painted red. Cruise Main and Mars...

    Save up enough eloquent speeches, and you can be evolved enough to afford a luxury cruise.
