    It appears that the Star Trek Home Tour was so popular that people wanted all the houses equally, so now we've got to decide the door prize ;) - a 24-hour runoff poll to determine the winner, with the moderator recusing himself and voting only as the tie-breaker, if needed.

    Good luck, guys!

    I voted Klaus

    BUT

    If I ever become rich enough, I'm building Bernard's.

    Wow, you folks have made it tough! Both the voters and the artists!

    Again, we have a tie! So, it comes down to the moderator to cast a vote and break the tie, and it's not an easy one, let me tell you! Bernard Guignard definitely thought big, giving us a complete house based on not only the bridge, but several of the upper decks, and given a massive lottery win, I too would be sorely tempted to build such a place (although I'd probably build it as someplace I could get away from my more conventional house to. My particular Trek structure dream is a full-size TOS 1701 that is a resort hotel ;) ).

    But ... I have to be true to my artistic tastes and cast my vote for Klaus, who thought smaller, but was a bit less literal in embracing a room that shows definite attributes of a bridge without actually building the bridge. In truth, this design could easily work within the other, larger structure :bolian:.

    And so, Klaus once again gets the honor thrust upon him to challenge our creativity (not to mention his own!), but not before we thank and congratulate Bernard Guignard for participating and tying twice! Well done, both of you - it's great to see such different styles and concepts appeal equally. IDIC :).

    Obviously, my contest idea didn't appeal to many, but the two members who did enter did some fantastic work! Really well done, both of you. Congratulations, Klaus. Anxious to see what you come up with for the May Challenge.

    I think the problem was not the idea's appeal but its narrowness, more-general themes usually get a better number of responses. Great one though! :D

    Wow :cool: First time entry and I tied it twice. Congratultations Klaus. :bolian: This was fun. :) When I get some other projects out of the way I'll keep working one, this one since it combines my love of trek and house design :)
