10-Forward is not on deck 2, as the video depicts.
Which is why the lounge was called "Two-Forward", is behind the large windows on the lip of the large "island" the bridge sits on that makes up the bulk of the main shuttlebay and -incidentally- looks nothing like Ten-Forward.
^Well, it does resemble 10 Forward in layout, but the direction of the curve on the windows is reversed.
Incidentally, this would have been the Lounge Picard was in in the very first shot in "Encounter at Farpoint".
Don't bother with the review and watch the film. It's a great movie!
Probably the easiest to model. May have even used existing meshes for the furniture.
This picture shows one of the few nits I have about this project. The fonts are wrong, and he's using lower case letters. That's probably an easy fix though. Other than that...
It was amazing.
The nit thats that stands out most to me was the diameter of the upper decks. the arc of those corridors was consistent with the decks where the saucer is widest. it was especially problematic on decks 1 & 2.
I appreciate the demo though. I just pretended it was deck 6.
All those lounges are just space. For the E-D, in peacetime, they were lounges. But maybe for Galaxy Class ships in deep space, they were reconfigured to be science labs, or for diplomatic ships, set up as luxury suites, or during the Dominion War, as troop transport quarters.
It's possible that in addition to shuttle craft, and runabouts, the main shuttle bay is able to take on small freighters, as well. Who is to say that some floors aren't retractable to make room.
Not to mention, during war time, the Galaxies could also be converted to basically troop transport and aircraft carriers. There is a lot of shuttle bay space for runabouts reconfigured as fighter craft, as missions call for. Not all battles need to be fought by capital ships.
I think I could spend quite a few hours roaming this model. Something like this could push me to purchase a VR headset.
"This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by CBS."
Too many bars and lounges
Yeah, that sucks. This one's still up, for now:
Welp. That was fun while it lasted.
I doubt anything will come of this then.
Thhis sort of thing would be great and inspire me to get VR...imagine seeing inside Rama, or Niven's RIngworld...take a ride on a transparent General Products hull!
I really can't see how such a claim can hold water - this is ART, regardless of what inspired it. Did CBS really think that the video contained footage from the TV show?
It might be just automatic copyright flag as well. Either way, the creator should dispute that claim.
It did, however, contain dialogue excerpts from characters while on the Bridge. That's certainly a justified copyright claim. And possibly the ship's hum FX sound could be held as well (does somebody know about that?).
The stairs bothered me, because in some instances they seem to be in places where there is no ramp or elevator. Or, maybe I just didn't see them. For example, the lounge overlooking the main Shuttlebay seemed to be accessible only by the stairs.
What about access for non-bipedal species or disabled humanoids?
Also, wouldn't stairs at least have railings? If someone was on the steps when the ship hit a temporal anomaly, that person would be thrown 50 meters into the opposite wall!
It's the future, man. There's no OSHA to enforce those kind of standards in the future (or a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away for that matter):
Especially that plasma stream in "Eye of the Beholder". If that safety door is down while some kind of repair is in process and the stream is active, all you have to do is trip and fall in to it. Even if you miss the stream, who knows how far that hole goes down.
