    This is a few recent illustrations representing some stuff I've been researching. Most recent being the landing party equipment from The Cage (on 11"x17" sheets)...




    I also spent a bit more time on the original plans of the Enterprise, reverse engineering the original layout of the plans (most of my previous work centered on more complete extrapolations of Jefferies' designs). These are 11"x17" representations...



    And for those wanting something bigger, here are large scale versions (actual size when printed at 150 dpi)...

    And strictly for the fun of it, here is a color illustration from my final 33 inch Enterprise plans (I was just playing around with it to see how it would look)...

    Oh glorious! Did you actually track down the original type of rotary switch that was in the communicator, or did you base that off images?

    Shaw, your work is inspiring!

    The only thing I don't see (and where I *might* be able to contribute something) is that the missing buttons on the lasers were actually typewriter keys! Round typewriter keys.

    *EDIT*
    Although I've just read that they were added AFTER. Huh. How about that?

    Yeah. The props were modified later.

    Didn't they get the silver gear things on the back for the second pilot?

    For years I thought the rear of the Hand Laser was bullet round...
