    In other words, they're about as authoritative as TOS itself. :D

    A lot of this boils down to bouncing back and forth between putting together what's depicted on screen and putting together what works and looking up on screen references to justify it.

    Fortunately, so many of the tech references are so all over the map that it's not hard to do, just as it's possible to justify Cary's version, or Aridas', of FJ's, for that matter. It's all a question of which parts to embrace and which to ignore.

    Who's to say the captain didn't just move cabins at some point? That works perfectly well!

    The tricky bit is fitting his cabin, Rand's cabin and a stretch of corridor into Deck 12 (usually a small amount of space in the dorsal!)

    Yeah, that's the main reason (for me) that this location doesn't make sense, if it was just the referance to the deck level alone, we could fudge it as you suggest, but being it's compounded by the visual cues, it's probably best just to chalk it up to a mistake and ignore it altogether? Anyway, what are we to make of deck 3? It seems that we might as well give it over entirely to recreational facilities, perhaps with the fancy round rec room from season three in the middle w/other briefing room style rec/lounges surrounding it?

    Not to mention enough corridor for Bele and Lokai to chase each other around for 5 minutes!

    Guess we can assume they circled a few rounds before entering the turbo lift again?

    Well those corridors do look awfully similar! ;)

    Ever see the third season blooper reel? There's one bit where Bele and Lokai actually run into each other, then run in opposite directions (with a dubbed in "Hey, shmuck! It's this way!").

    I'm wondering if a small technical section could be included in the Concordance.

    At the very least, I think a size comparison chart is in order.

    I assume that comment relates to this thread?

    Reminds me of Julia Sawalha's line in the Doctor Who parody "Curse of Fatal Death":

    "Doctor, all these corridors look the same."

    Not really. Just thinking that a few technical diagrams might be in order, especially with so many more ships running around.

    Very true. On the plus side, it turned me on to the Concordance project, of which I wasn't previously even aware!

    Well, there really hasn't been an official announcement yet, so it's not like you're out of the loop or anything.

    Speaking of the Concordance, the submissions window is now open.

    More info in the relevant thread....

    Just need some nacelles on Shaw's cutaway and I can restart this mofo....

    Have you completed the layout for the Primary and Secondary hulls? There's no reason they'd be affected by the nacelles, no matter what their shape.

    I'd rather wait until the whole thing is ready to dive into, since fitting the plans to the page is a part of the process.

    Anyone want to poke Shaw and see what's up?
