    Something I have been working on for the past few hours. So the deck height of my ships are generally 3 meters (higher for things like shuttlebays and the like). Based on observation of TOS episodes and knowing Leonard Nimoy is 6ft tall (approx. 1.828 meters), I manage to conclude that the doors are 2 meters tall. There is a space of about 0.5 meters between the top of the door and those overhanging girders/panels that go across the hallway. The only issue is trying to figure out the width of individual panels. I have them at 1.35 meters across so there is a 0.1 meter gap for the silver reflective tape in between them. They look about right, but information on set particulars is non-existent.
    I'm assuming as you get closer to the center of the ship (for the circular portions) the number of panels goes down and the panel width does not actually change.

    I'm back, from outer space. Come to see that sad look upon your face...(points if you get the movie reference)...
    Been gone a for nearly 9 months dealing with health issues, so I haven't been able to work on anything (writing or modeling wise).
    Started working on the Toch again. Started UVWing the AWAC module and texture work. Redid some bits I did not like, including a rebuilt impulse deck, the aft ends of the nacelles, rebuilding parts of the nacelles, removing the shuttlebay, and reworking the bridge module.

    One last thing before bed. An idea I had for a refit of the Toch during the TOS era.

    You stuff is cool!
    Modeling to me is making silly animals with Paperclay. You know like three year olds do?:ack:
    I'm not a big TOS fan though but I like your stuff!

    Question from the floor:

    Is there any infrastructure inside the brace between the nacelles?

    So had to redo the texture on the AWAC module due to forgetting that dimensions of 2k, 4k, 8k, etc texture sizes, but it looks better. I decided to give the saucer an angled edge and I think it looks better. Moved the deflector beneath the saucer instead of having it on the forward edge of the saucer rim, putting it on a new structural piece that has the newly moved planetary sensor dome.

    Still planning out the TOS-era refit of this vessel. The sensor and reconnaissance capabilities of these vessels would be increased dramatically. It would also have upgraded offensive and defensive capabilities to cope. The little blue cylinders are caterpillar drive type engines, used when this ship needs to covertly observe a pre-warp civilization.

    Yes. Mainly sensors as well as regulator systems for the warp nacelles.

    Love so much about this. Love the size, love the styling, love the deck plans. I even kind of like that you're doing your own thing with the Bussards, but I just can't quite get myself to accept their interruption. Great work though, excited to see more!

    I may use this site in the future. Depends if models uploaded can be prevented from being downloaded. Also ignore this ship design I was just trying the site. (Atolm has free pass at it though because it seems like he would make an odd design like this :lol:).

    Not much done because of the heat (I hate the summer months). Some minor adjustments to the nacelles and the impulse drive. Worked on the deflector area a bit too.

    Also had a weird urge to make a side profile of this in Starbound. Not 1/1 scale but eh...

    That is a fascinating idea for a luxury cruiser in the Star Trek universe.

    Your luxury cruiser is wonderful! I really like the tiered design, it speaks of exclusivity and just the right amount of excess - just right for an elegant, space-going yacht.

    Another party cruiser with a center ball for parties and parks and things...

    The spokes in the ball rotate and they have lights on them.
