    Does anyone know what this decoration on the wall in Voyager's briefing room is supposed to represent?

    In case of emergency break glass.

    That's the death inhaler, right there. For really bad briefings.

    Air freshener in case of gastric distress from Neelix's meals.

    It's a steering wheel so they can turn the ship ;)

    "janeway to engineering, i've relocated the dilithium crystals to the briefing room in case the kazon board us and try to steal it, they'll never look there. also it has the added effect of sterilizing harry on the other side of the wall"

    Maybe it's what Harry holds on to when Janeway orders him to bend over and assume the position.

    :D

    @JanewayRulz!

    It's from the episode "Repression". But it's visible in other episodes as well.

    This is from the episode "Nightingale":

    You can clearly see it in the background on the wall of that passage leading to the turbolift.

    It looks like some artwork to me. But I don't know exactly what it is. I was hoping someone here might know what that is.

    It looks like from that last picture that Harry knows exactly what it is.

    He's staring at it.

    He's plotting his heist.

    It might simply be a wall sculpture. Wall art is pretty common throughout Trek. Sometimes you'd see a prop used on some alien planet show up later as something else in someone's quarters.

    Harry seems to be looking directly at it in that one shot, but unless he said something specifically about it, it's likely just wall art.

    Most of their art is hideous.

    I do like one hotel painting in ENT's 2 Days, 2 Nights though.

    Mark Allen Shepherd, who was inside DS9's Morn suit, also did a lot of abstract art for that show. If he sold some of those to the studio, they might have been recycled too.

    Wall art? :confused:

    In Voyager??:cardie:

    Wasn't that one of RM's gripes, that Voyager didn't dress itself up more? IIRC Moore wanted "a tree" at the end of a corridor... :vulcan: not that I ever recall him putting a tree in any of the Galactica's corridors. ;)

    Maybe when you spin it, it reveals a hidden alcove leading to Janeway's Batcave.

    That's the on switch for the second warp core (look at the MSD) that's needed to power Janeway's hairdryer.

    Yes. Janeway reveals to Harry the secret of "the object on the wall" - it is a communication device she obtained on their last away mission, and which will enable them to contact the Caretaker. Just kidding. The screen cap is misleading. He is actually only turning around before leaving.

    I didn't know he did abstract art for the show. Thanks for the info. This does look pretty strange and abstract. I guess it's possible then that he made it.

    I sounded like Shepherd only did paintings though, not sculptures. It's just a guess.

    The thing is it is ship colours, it looks more like a device than art.

    Maybe it's the thermostat? For when you have aliens in the briefing room who need it hotter or colder than humans?
