    I had the same thought. IIRC, we never see the Office side of the Travel Pod entrance either so maybe that was used for either.

    I believe they were separate sets, just on the same stage. The doorways may have been borrowed and repainted but I don't see any other shared items between the two sets.

    We do see the adjacent travel pod entrance from the office side of things, btw, and blueprints of this set confirm that the two docking ports of that set were the same

    Wow, it seems inefficient that there isn't a door in the starboard turbolift to reach the bathroom directly. Instead, you have to go into the portside turbolift, step into the security lobby, go into the docking port/airlock chamber, and then step into the head. Was that just to give people a place to congregate in case there was a line to use the facilities?

    Alternatively, having a crew member wait in the bridge turbolift for the bathroom would inefficiently reduce access to the bridge. Better they wait in the airlock.

    But then again, how often would more than one member of the bridge crew need to use the facilities at the same time?

    I kinda see that airlock/security lobby as a break room of sorts for the bridge crew. I doubt it's a very busy airlock during most situations, so it would make sense to otherwise use it as a place for single members of the bridge crew to take a small break. I plan on even adding a TWOK-era replicator/food slot there as well.

    Luckily, this design is 100 years apart from Neelix's chili...

    Just make sure the airlock door controls are a long ways away from the flush option.

    I hated that the "solution" to the bridge having a single jammable (power out, no move) entry/exit point was to put in TWO lifts instead on having the second door open into a ladder or stair, which also would have made access to the airlock and even a head easy. *sigh*

    He was apparently just further back in the turbolift when Spock makes his dramatic entrance. When it cuts back from everyone's shocked faces after Spock steps out, you can see Chekov finish stepping into position behind Uhura. Apparently, the editor chose to spare him the embarrassment of having all of us seem him sidling out of the lift behind and around an uncaring Spock. Were that they'd been so kind when they were stealing the Enterprise from Spacedock.

    (Total aside, but my favorite part of Chekov's terrible dutch-boy collar is that its awfulness means that he's apparently the only person who brought a change of clothes with him when the crew went space-graverobbing, given he loses the collar right after they leave Earth, and he's in a totally different outfit in TVH).

    I'm sure there was probably a change of clothes for humans somewhere on Vulcan. ;)

    Everyone else just REALLY loved the outfits they were wearing two months ago. Hell, Scotty felt so bad he demoted himself.

    (Honestly, Kirk had that amazing blue and white thing he wore when Sarek came to his apartment.)

    Kirk's tracksuit is indeed quite something.

    The Mr. Scott's Guide diagram showing a bathroom door doesn't match the onscreen wall seen there. So the bathroom can be handled/located differently if need be.

    That set BP is new to me. Thanks for pointing to it.

    I'm taking it fairly easy this weekend (I've been diving into a space flight sim in VR this last week....the game Elite: Dangerous for anyone interested), but I did manage to get the turboshaft exterior modeled and in place.

    [​IMG]
    As previously discussed, the shafts are a tad bit wider than they were in both the live action plate and the mattes (the shafts were painted over in the mattes to look quite different than the way they appeared on the set). I widened them so that I'd actually be able to fit the turbolift model inside. I made the exterior shell as thin as I felt I could without it being too unbelievable (3 cm...1 cm for the door slot, 1 cm for both the inner and outer wall of the shell). Anyway, although they do appear wider, I don't think it''s egregious. (Note: the shaft on the starboard side appears even wider in the above shot because of lens distortion)

    Besides, being able to walk into the turbolift is pretty damn cool ;)

    Unfortunately, the nature of the Unreal's reflection model means that some of the reflection from outside the turboshaft spills into the inside of the turbolift (notice the bluish reflection inside the turbolift....realistically this wouldn't be there) I'll have to tweak my reflection captures a bit more to see if I can alleviate the problem.

    Having those cargo doors closed really changes the whole feel of the Cargo Deck.
    It's still big, but perhaps TV series big instead of movie big?
    I am reminded of those shuttlebay matte paintings in Voyager where we would often see the Delta Flyer and one or more large closed doors behind it.

    ALSO - is that a little ramp I see by the airlock? Great stuff! :techman:

    I think that already looks quite amazing, @Donny! I can‘t tell you how surreal it feels to finally be able to see other perspectives of a set that since childhood I‘ve only known from that limited view we got in the movie. I‘m so looking forward to how this will progress.

    Funny, I'd always heard that line as "Powerful stuff, that Romulan Ale," as in McCoy was commenting on his hangover, but I just checked Star Trek Transcripts site and my copy of the TWOK script, and it does indeed seem to be "Wonderful stuff." Learn something new every day.
