    The only way is through the retractable walls. I know, it's kind of silly.

    I am always amazed by these CG sets/interiors, but these are astonishing! All the little details and textures, and all the research that you do (and the collaboration with others) to work out what's what and where it goes is just astounding. No wonder it all looks so real :adore:

    Well, that's film sets for you! :biggrin:
    I seem to remember a floorplan sketch (?Probert's) which had an access corridor along the portside edge, but after seeing your renders in 3D it's clear that while there is just enough floorspace present, the angle of the wall makes that impossible without dropping the floor several feet first

    Always liked the lounge. Beautiful renders especially with the gaming pieces, like the chess set,

    When they were working out what that space was going to look like, was that before or after the upper and lower domes were redesigned? The earlier Richard Taylor version looks larger enough and the shape is more rounded out like the upper dome on the TOS Enterprise that maybe a corridor could have fit along the edge on that one.

    The miniature set was built to conform to the outer hull of the upper dome after the geometry was changed from the more rounded version to the sleeker, more tapered version we see on the finished model.

    There's certainly the suggestion of a portside access there...but I wonder if my brain was also mixing up Mister Scott's Guide To The Enterprise - that layout has tons of extra space on both sides!!!

    The "Privacy Area" is moved forward in MSGTTE. I could've done this, to allow room on either side, and I experimented with that. However, I ended up liking my version more, with the "Privacy Area" moved forward and with the drop-down screens. I just like the way the space felt more cozy my way.

    TWOK Lounge final renders. I never came up with an "idle" screen for the viewscreens, so I've just left them "off"

    While I prefer TMP as a movie over TWOK, I do prefer your TWOK version of the VIP lounge. I'm a sucker for a nautical aesthetic.

    Yep me too. TMP was much too cool and antiseptic. TWOK gave the old girl a far warmer and lived-in feel; much more inviting and enjoyable to be in, IMO.

    God this looks cozy.

    I'm reminded of an old cartography room at my college. I loved going in there for the maps and the solitude... it was a nice cozy corner of the main building on campus. Once people realized it was there and started going there to study I stopped hanging out there, and before much longer all the cartography stuff was removed. But the lounge here gives off that same vibe of a space to go to for some peace and quiet on break.

    We'll never know this answer obviously but I wonder how often this area of the ship was used. Designed to be more trafficked and never was, making it one of those sitting areas that hardly sees visitors? I wonder.

    This will come as no surprise to you Donny but I love the look of the TWOK version. ;)

    Yeah, I'm really satisfied with the way it turned out this time around. It's fun doing this stuff that we never got to see. I should do more of it!

    Both of them look great, but the TWOK version is definitely the one I'd hang out at if I were a member of the Enterprise crew. :techman:

    Those are both wonderful, but I'd definitely choose the TWOK one to spend time in!

    I only belatedly realized this, but it's a bit unclear where the entrance is. In the film, Spock came into the lounge from the green-lit section to screen left/starboard. You seem to have placed a doorway there next to the food dispenser, and the last shot seems to be through it, but there's no clear image of the door itself. But that's the only possible way in.

    Although having the door on the side wall there seems tricky -- in line with the earlier questions, is there room for a corridor outside of it? I have to wonder if it's a good idea to follow Johnson's precedent of putting the dispenser on the forward wall. The original set design sketch has that wall open, and it seems a more logical place to put the entryway. Maybe the food machine should be on the side wall instead.
