    Given that all you had to work with was a black ceiling, that's a very decent solution! I agree that any additional details should be minimal (as per the TMP aesthetic) so I'm not sure any ribbing is necessary, but I very much look forward to being proved wrong! :techman:

    There is an indent down there. Might be hard to see depending on the brightness of your screen. But yeah. I agree about something closing up the holes, although there’s never any evidence there was such a thing.

    Thanks for that!

    I heard through the Starfleet rumor mill that an ancestor of Dr. Pulaski's was a warp technician on the Enterprise refit, and plummeted to their death because they didn't see the hole. ;)

    How many decks do you think her chin hit on the way down? That’s a narrow shaft.

    Here's the ceiling complete, with ribbing around the "socket", which I actually quite like:

    Another shot, looking up from P Deck...

    Love the ribbed look. Fits the tmp aesthetic well.

    Looks awesome! So what's on the other side of that? Is there an impulse engineering deck in the saucer?

    Oh wait, that's just the top of the secondary hull. So presumably above that is the torpedo launcher complex, then it continues up the neck to impulse engineering.

    Here's the set as it was for the TV show. You can see out the top of the set here to something white.

    I guess you coulda made the core disappear into one of those toroidal things if you'd wanted to.

    That breaks up the mass of black very nicely! :techman:

    Very nice solution for that.

    On screen, due to the 50 to 70 foot long corridor in front of the engine room, I put the vertical shaft between 50-70 feet aft. Of course, once the shaft extends up (one or two decks as Donny shows), it transitions to angle up the rear of the neck to connect with the impulse crystal features on the top of saucer. Also, the power shaft no longer plunges through the center of the torpedo room, rather it is well aft of the room. The horizontal power shaft to the nacelles might be shorter than we think, or goes up the rear of the nacelle pylons instead of the front of the front of the pylons. YMMV :).

    Yes, you're correct.

    As I was attempting to fall asleep last night, I started imagining what the Impulse Engineering deck would look like, and am very excited to eventually flesh out that area. Is going to be fun! And as I stated in a previous post, I'd like to also flesh out the neck, and how the shaft runs through it, but that will be at a later date.

    This is obviously not the set but apparently from the licensed theme park show STAR TREK ADVENTURE at Universal Studios. Looks like they forgot the branch to the starboard nacelle. Whoops!

    That's ok, it just means that the Enterprise will fly in circles for a while...:lol:

    It does seem to be a rather odd omission. Why go to the trouble of putting together a huge wall-sized matte painting like that, clearly based on existing footage, and miss that little bit completely? I'd love to see the whole thing as it was used in the theme park exhibit.

    Not a matte. :) But your point is taken.

    Thanks again for all the amazing refit images you posted last April, Donny. I had to crop one quite a bit to make it fit the 2.4:1 aspect ratio of my monitor, but it looks pretty great!

    I was just looking at the shots of my Refit model yesterday, as I hadn't looked closely at it in a few months. I even made one of the shots my phone background yesterday!

    I must say, this looks great on your ultra-wide monitor! I'm glad you enjoy the work!

    On this topic, I noticed how clean I depicted it, as if it was fresh out of drydock. I want to do a more weathered version soon, to depict the duller, dirtier surfaces seen in TWOK.

    There's nothing quite as fun as taking a model into Substance and just making it really dirty and beaten up looking. Sometimes I have to hold back because I end up making things look like they just barely survived a nuclear war.
