    I do not draw the bridges, they are collected. Yes, that is how the USS Jenolan was.

    Bridges are bridges. Add what one thinks is appropriate.

    This thread reminds me of the Miravi rendering of the Captain's Mate. :eek:

    to make this post on-topic, I liked one of the conceptual Voyager bridges where the captain's seat was in the center (of course) and the other stations were set on the walls to the left and right of it. The bridge was rectangular. Don't know where I can find an image. Sorry.

    awesome.

    Seems I confused the bridge set with engineering.

    Still, I think a rectangular bridge would be highly cool.

    Just put the captain's chair 1/4 of the way to the warp core, loose the warp core in favor of a viewscreen and it's good.

    ^ There was a lad some time ago who was planning on doing just that. He was modelling in SketchUp if I recall correctly but I have no idea where the project went to...

    Redspar, that is so cool! I just realized that the control panel side looks like the Starfleet insignia. All I have to say is:drool:

    Hmmm... now that's fascinating... great minds think alike I s'pose?

    Your Aries-class bridge has an almost identical layout the the bridge I developed for my refit Sawyer class scout... including the location of the stairway... back when I was in Jr. High School (that would be roughly 1980).

    Granted, it's not done in the TNG_era style (mostly TOS with TMP influenced elements... remember, this was around the time that Sternbach's "Starflight Chronology" was out, and that's where I selected my ship from).

    But the overall layout... including slat-type windows overhead... I mean, the mind just boggles. ;)

    That said... unless you're one of the "Psychic Friends," it's pure coincidence. And nicely-executed coincidence as well!

    Wow, thanks all, you made my day.

    Cary L Brown - OK this is REALLY weird then.. I originally drew this Aries gunboat back in 1983 for the Star Trek Role Playing Game my friend and I played back in the day. I found my old drawings in a closet a few years ago and since I was learning 3d modeling at the time I thought I'd try to make my teenage drawings in 3D (I'm now 42 yrs old)

    Here is a pic of my original drawing from 1983:

    3d model of it I made 2 yrs ago:

    If you look close enough you can see the innards of the bridge thru the windows.



    You still have your drawings Cary? I'd love to see them. Very weird though.. We must have tapped into the sci-fi collective consciousness of the time. :eek:

    sbk1234 - You are the first person to catch that, and yes it was intentional! The insignia make a perfect console shape ;)
