    That photo with Shatner on the bridge looks like a scene from that horribly awkward and il-conceived promotional bit announcing the new movie (TFF) that he and Harve Bennett did for the press. IIRC, the cast members clearly looked less than thrilled to be there in costume after filming had wrapped.

    Well, I for one am glad they had that shindig, because it has provided me with the best reference I could find featuring the ceiling structure

    Note that the ceiling structure was rotated 45 degrees for it's appearance in TUC, compared to its appearance in TFF.

    It's true you don't often get a good view of the bridge ceiling like that. It is an excellent reference.

    Reminds me of that one POV shot from the inside of the turbolift in TOS (I think it was an early episode) that showed the ceiling wall of that bridge. Almost looked like it went straight up, as opposed to curving in. Of course, it's been years since I saw that view, so my memory might be failing me.

    Your memory is just fine.

    If only they'd changed the miniature we wouldn't complain. Oh who am I kidding? We wouldn't complain about this?

    That's the one! :techman: The ceiling both curved in AND went straight up. Always liked the different angles they tried to film back then - experimenting with different points of view.

    I was wrong about one thing though, it wasn't an early episode. It's at least season 2. Chekov is at the Nav station and Spock's scanner is light gray, as opposed to the early black. In fact, it may even be season 3. Kirk seems to be wearing his girdle and it looks like he's got the extra-bushy sideburns. :D

    Definitely season 3: "Is There in Truth No Beauty?"
    Side note: I love the season 3 uniforms.

    There is a similar view in WNMHGB, the shot where we see the screensaver on the viewscreen.

    Wow, I think you can actually see too much of the ceiling here. Maybe they should have made a full ceiling for the bridge like they did for the later series.

    Wow...forgot about that one. The ceiling looks like it was made out of comstruction paper! At least the later one looked like it was intended to be a viable part of the structure. Thanks to all for the pics! :)

    I never saw those shots of the TFF bridge before. The ceiling just needs a dome in the middle!

    I didn’t see them until a few months ago. I saved them away for the eventual day I’d be working on this bridge. Thank god for Trekcore.

    But all those ribs were removable. The solid section with the dome was suspended from the catwalks, so if you didn't angles where the ceiling ribs would be visible, you could yank them all out.

    Nice view of Doohan's missing finger.

    Makes me wonder if he ever got frustrated wanting to flip someone off while his left hand was occupied.

    Progress update! Spent the weekend crafting the floor pieces and the railing.

    Thanks! The biggest challenge I think will be all the various viewscreen and control panel graphics around the bridge, which I'm obviously saving for last. They're a little more animated than what I'm used to working on, but nothing that's impossible. It'll just take a good chunk of time.
