    Something tells me that they may exist in RedGeneral's archive, I am going to save them anyways. Another thing that is worth mentioning, each category album at http://archive.frogland.co.uk/ has the ability to be downloaded and saved as a .Zip file.

    I recently downloaded all of the images, and am going to start saving copies of what we find, not sure where to put them that would benefit others.

    I've corresponded with RedGeneral in the past so I'll try to send him an email to see how he's doing. I've also had plans to download the archive, just in case. It's a good thing to have multiple people do that however. I don't think we need to worry about hosting them somewhere unless the current site is no longer active, or it gets very much out of date.

    I was just contacted by RedGeneral, who's getting back to the things now. He says he's going to continue to maintain the blueprint archive, so that's safe for now!

    Yay! It's good to hear he didn't kick the bucket. I hope he comes back soon and that all is well with him!

    I've been away longer than I intended. During my break, my other health problems deteriorated and I wasn't well enough to stay in touch. However I'm now back to state I was before I left and will now be resuming the Archive and the Voyager Project.

    I've gone though the posts I missed and I think everything is now caught up on and added to the archive. If I've missed something, just let me know and I'll add it.
    New to the archive is a Picard folder - http://archive.frogland.co.uk/#16073655574069

    The Archive Update RSS feed: http://archive.frogland.co.uk/plugins/rss/

    One of the posts that caught my attention was the research into the chairs - this has solved a lot of problems for the Voyager Project. I'm currently going through the manufacturers documents and 3D files with the aim of adding the information to the project.

    Work on the Voyager project has resumed and the Standalone Junction Room has been completed and blueprinted.

    Also the Set Dressing chapter has been updated.

    With that there is a new release v4.0.0: https://www.deviantart.com/radishdalek/art/The-Voyager-Project-set-blueprints-680169230
    There is a new numbering system: [Main release].[Sub Release].[Error Fixes]
    * Main release - essentially when a room or equivalent is added
    * Sub Release - when a console or room element (such as the transporter chamber) is added but the rest of the room isn't there yet.
    * Error fixes - corrections etc.

    The Galaxy and Runabout Projects are currently on hold as I'm avoiding spreading myself too far for now.

    Great to have you back. I really like that standalone junction - it didn't get enough screen time!

    Welcome back man, it's been too long for sure! Hit me up if you need help with the Runabout project; I paused my model for the time being because, well, doing an interior from scratch is a pretty big leap. But with your plans and input, I should be able to get something done for release pretty soon!

    Welcome back! And thank you for everything you do with the Archive.

    In the voyager projects, for the Wedge, I think they may have used multiple different sizes of these. I stumbled upon an auction page that had one that appeared on the set. Of course I am struggling to find it now.

    EDIT:
    Here is one auction listing, but is not the one I was looking for:

    Here is another one but also was not the one that came to mind:

    @Lt. Washburn - that is a great photo of the lights - I can see couple of details I missed and so will remodel to match.

    @batboy853 - There may be three size variants of the wedges. I think the corridor alcove and standalone junction room used vacuum formed wedges, so they might match the panel in the propstore link.

    Wow, great timing. I've been doing some research on the conn/ops stations and had just gone looking for anything on them, including your repository. I remember seeing some blueprints years ago, a little small and blurry, but I couldn't find them. What was the source of that image?

    It was on the twitter page for the TNG bridge restoration project, but it was a very early post - a lot of scrolling involved.

    Also the TOS dish in Starfleet Communicator 132 was found in Internet Archive magazine section.

    Also worth noting that the stasis chamber in the thaw ended up being re-used any time they needed a stasis chamber, such as in Resolutions, One, and Dragon's Teeth.

    Also nice find on the conn / ops console!

    I'll echo everyone else — that conn/ops console is an awesome find. :techman:

    The next version of the of the Voyager Project will have the corridor layout blueprinted. Hopefully it should be out before end of January.

    WIP placeholders used to make sure that the corridor fits:
