This has got me excited for revisiting the Refit sickbay! Great job, Rekkert!
The ideal sickbay. I really like the TNG and VOY combination.
I'm also curious to see your interpretation of the very brief Enterprise-A sickbay set we saw in TUC.
Very impressive work!
That sickbay looks phenomenal! Great mix of all existing Sickbay sets!
I always had it in mind with the sickbay that they only showed the 'main' ward, and that the rest of the sickbay facilities stretched out to other sections or decks. But yes budgetary concerns mean we never saw the full thing.
Well, that seems to have changed in the Star Trek future, since the computers on VOY track your brain waves 24/7.
Will you be doing the Enterprise E bridge?
Thanks for the comments, I'm happy you all liked the Venture sickbay, I quite enjoyed working on it myself.
@The Primeval: Soon™
First, an update on the Probert concept bridge. I've been focusing on the ceiling to get some finalized lighting, and while I did manage to get the shape right, I needed to essentially destroy the viewscreen to get it to work, so now I have to redo the front of the set. I've decided to let that as it is for now, and to focus on the center of the bridge first. I've finished the area behind the main couch, though I have yet to fill it with plants and properly texture it.
Second, another commission I have been working on for a while, the bridge of the Constitution-Class USS Gibraltar, brought out of mothballs and hastily modernized for the Dominion War. This commission is, of course, being done for our very own @Gibraltar.
The base for this bridge is the classic Constitution bridge, but given its "quick and dirty" modernization, some aspects will be brand new (like the pit area, inspired on the Prometheus), while others will retain the 23th Century look (like the ceiling and rails).
Still a lot to do here, like adding a tactical console behind the Captain, and modeling the 4 Prometheus-style consoles that will go on the pit.
2019 won't go away without a fight, it seems. Last Tuesday my aunt passed away due to cancer, she was 46. My mother and I were the only close relatives, so we had to take care of things, it hasn't been an easy week... Can this year end already?
With this preamble, I did get some work done as I got a timely request for a very simple commission during the weekend. A redress of the Frontier bridge as the Galaxy-Class USS Nimitz bridge. A more militaristic ship launched during the Dominion War, the ship has bare metal components on the bridge replacing the wood seen in peacetime designs.
I'll be doing a battle bridge for the Nimitz as well, based on the designs of the Frontier and Galaxy battle bridges.
Sorry for your family's loss, Rekkert.
Wow, the all-metallic look with this bridge layout really pops! Functional, austere, and all business. The perfect warship bridge.
Very nice work!
Sorry to hear.. Hope things get better for you..
Good to see you work, good job!
That looks great, the reflections are cool and I like the pattern on the floor.
One of the best bridges you have made. I like it very much.
Sorry to hear about your aunt. Take care!
Sorry to hear about your aunt. RIP.
In a more positive note; I love dropping in to see these fantastic sets realized. The sickbay, the revamped bridges; loving it.
I am sorry to hear about your aunt.
Regarding your bridge, congratulations on making that style appealing to me in both styling and addition of stations and layout.
Thanks everyone for the nice comments, I really appreciate them in a time like this.
Been working on the Nimitz battle bridge, and I'll probably finish that commission before working on this some more, but I wanted to start the conversation about this, as I could use the feedback. Given recent events I've been working on a little side project: Fontana Station. A starbase orbiting above Babel, built in the late 23th Century.
I wanted to honor DC Fontana with something a bit more important (in-universe) than just a random "USS Fontana", so I retooled my old and unfinished USS Valkyrie bridge project into a starbase ops center. The location of the starbase obviously makes reference to what might be her most famous contribution to Trek, while all the red accents are a callback to the TOS era she helped define so much.
The name "Fontana Station" rather than "Starbase" in a callback to the fact she wrote 'Encounter at Farpoint', and on that episode the first term is used to refer to Farpoint, rather than the latter.
Finally, I was gonna make the starbase just a simple Regula I clone, but after reading about Babel in Memory Alpha I came to a realization. According to Star Trek Maps, it's a small planetoid with 3 moons, and that reminded me of a certain painting by Rick Sternbach.
So, I did a quick and very much low poly model of that station, which I always liked very much, and retconned the painting from Picard's quarters in my head-canon to be a painting of Fontana Station over Babel.
The ops set itself is mostly done, but LCARS and other details are still missing, and will have to wait 'till I finish the Nimitz. I decided to add the little model as an hologram, though I don't know how good it works in the late 23th Century aesthetics. What do you folks think, does it work in there?
Very nice! I always wanted to see more advanced looking bridges in the shows. Even as advanced as the Prometheus was for its time, it was still a fairly conventional bridge design, just brighter. Holo-projections definitely bring it to a more believable high-tech future.
Multi-level bridges also pique my interest. Kind of surprised that it took them as long as it did to finally show us something like that in Disco with the S31 double-decker.
All these things, of course, were restricted by budgeting considerations IRL.
