Sorry, I'm only seeing this now: @Star Trek Apolgist, I understand you probably just mean well, but as I told you before, your repeated schtick of “suggesting” or “requesting” stuff artists around here should do for you is absolutely inappropriate and unacceptable. As I said the last time this came up, should you do it again it would earn you a formal warning. So here we are and this is it: I'll issue a reply-ban for this thread and you receive a warning for ignoring moderator instructions. Comments to PM.

Does anyone have a larger version of these side and top views? I just really like the design.
That borg maturation chamber is mislabeled. "One" was the episode where Seven was in charge of getting Voyager through a nebula while the crew was in stasis.
There was no maturation chamber in that episode. That's the stasis pod that the crew used when the ship flew through the nebula.
@Batboy - you're right about the pod. I used the auction description without checking
I've updated the title and moved it to the Voyager folder
Voyager - One status pod

All great stuff. I'd been meaning to suggest looking at the upcoming Propstore auction. There's some good stuff that's not directly blueprint-related, but still useful, like high resolution LCARS panel images that all the words/numbers can be read, as well as good dimensions that can be incorporated into set plans.
Using the LCARS measurements is a good idea.
Also Heritage have this bridge panel - https://entertainment.ha.com/itm/en...269-142022.s?ic4=GalleryView-Thumbnail-071515
Also I've started to sort through my saved images of LCARS and I'll start uploading to the archive when done. LCARS with known measurements will have their dimensions in the title.
You know, it suddenly occurs to me that this should probably be archived here. Or somewhere. It was posted on Foundation3D (or possibly the Lightwave Guild, I don't remember which it was called at the moment these were posted) over ten years ago, and is a collection of screencaps of the V'Ger CG model from the 2001 TMP Director's Edition (and probably from the new one, it looks like only the texturing changed). I don't remember who specifically shared it, sorry.
V'Ger Geometry Previews
There's some really cool finds in there; one of the items up for auction is the PADD given to Picard with the charges against humanity at Q's trial in "Encounter at Farpoint." No wonder Picard said he could see nothing in the charges regarding them; the text is literally a bunch of random numbers.
If LCARS panels are to be added the archive, then keep in mind some of the panels have been given generic names in the auctions.
I spent a good amount of time today trying to track down when this panel was used:
It's listed as Voyager holodeck control panel. But its not the ones that were used for most of the series run. I appears that it was used for s1 only.
Only screenshots I could find, were of where the set was dressed as the cargo bay.
That makes sense. I saw that it didn't match the screencap they had with it, so I had wondered where it was from.
The panels that are seen s2 on wards were in an auction here:
I feel like I've seen them appear again recently with better images, but I cannot find them.
Also this panel:
Listed as bridge lcars, but they aren't AFAIK. They are similar to the Enterprise-E bridge lcars as well as the Prometheus bridge LCARS, but they aren't. I think they are supposed to be the LCARS from the Jupiter lab that appeared in Voyager S2 The Swarm (the episode where the doctor started losing his memory), but I cannot find proper screencaps to confirm.
@batboy853 - good spot with panel identification. Generic names/descriptions are the main reason it has been such a slow process to sort. Hopefully the LCARS will be split into archive albums - "Original cast movies", "TNG","DS9","VOY","Generic Buttons", "Generic Isolinear", and "Sovereign". I do suspect there may have to be an album called "unsorted".
After seeing @David cgc post with the V'ger geometry, I realised that there wasn't anywhere archiving this stuff. So I decided to make a new category on the archive - "Production Used CGI Models"
Currently there are 822 images total - a mix of orthographic and perspective image renders of the models (no screenshots)

My hard drive (no idea of the original sources from years ago)
Robert Bonchune Artstation https://www.artstation.com/sleekndone (has been creating new renders of the original production cgi models with reworked textures)
Trekcore twitter for some Voyage Renders (https://twitter.com/trekcore/status/1085764277670154242)
Fabio Passaro's "Meshweaver" portfolio site has a number of renders of CG ships he's prepared and rendered for the Eaglemoss model line. Depends on how you define "Production-Used;" They were all definitely used in the Eaglemoss books and magazines, but the models themselves are a mix of screen-used (sometimes with additional detailing or other modernizations) and ones made after the fact for things like book covers and the Ships of the Line calendars (or specifically just for Eaglemoss), and he doesn't specify the sources.
Also, I love you. I'm just thinking about how unbelievable this would've been back when I first started out in the '90s, when the best reference we could get were compressed JPEG screencaps of VHS-recorded episodes by people with video capture cards, and the occasional publicity render. Even some of the most obscure ships in crisp, orthographic clarity. I guess that applies to the whole collection, but seeing all of this all at once in my bailiwick rocketed me back in time twenty years.
For now I've defined "Production Used" as Movies and TV series productions.
If we figure out which of Fabio Passaro's ships are modified from the original TV and Movie cg models, then I would add them to the album. Though probably with their titles including the term "(remodelled)"
Glad to have made your day.
You're doing everyone a great service here whether they realize it or not!
Seconded and tripled @Redgeneral - A BIG THANK YOU for organizing and making these materials available
I'd be willing to put in some time tracking down and getting what you currently have identified.
https://www.icollector.com/ has a ton of lcars displays, but the sites search feature is not that great. I search for LCARS and not everything comes up.
@batboy853 That would be wonderful - I'll PM you the link to my files
I was recently sent some Discovery ship renders previously on Meshweaver's site. These seem to have been production used and then converted by Meshweaver.
I've uploaded them to the "Production used CGI models" album with the prefix "DISC - " to each file to make it easier to find.
Also in the "Picard Ships" album I have added some views of the Excelsior II ship
