    I was wondering if out there floating among the net there was possible schematics for either the original or enterprise captains chairs..

    I have some technical drawings I found on the Net once. They were corrections of Michael McMaster's version of the TOS captain's chair. Unfortunately I'm at work and can't locate them. If I find them I'll let you know.

    ^Google Images shows a few nice schematics of Kirk's chair from the original Enterprise.

    I would personally be more interested in schematics for the chairs used in the TMP refit with the folding arms and auto-adjusting headrests. Always loved those things, but info is more difficult to come by.

    I am, yes, but I think the OP was wanting info on the TOS chair. Sorry to derail the topic. :whistle:

    Then there's this image from the Haynes manual that looks like it could catapult the Captain up and over the nav/helm controls, head first into the view screen. I honestly don't know where they came up with that idea.

    I don't get it either. Maybe it's booby-trapped in case someone sits in the chair without permission.
