    Interesting tidbit on the ready room door. I never noticed that either. Everything looks great, I'm looking forward to seeing the LCARs on the displays. :)

    Looking great!

    Thanks for all the comments :)

    @BlueNeumann: Yeah, I imagine it's because of the Ready Room set, but it's weird :lol:

    I've finished UV mapping the bridge and added the textures for the chairs, consoles and carpets. The effects are subtle so open the images in a separate window to see them fully. They'll be a bit more noticeable once I do the high quality renders with less noise. It's the first time I try doing something like this so I'm than open to suggestions or comments on my technique.

    As you can see on the door to the conference room, I've already started working on the labels and LCARS as well.

    Holy God, those door graphics look sweet! Love the subtle textures, too!

    :D

    I've added the isolinear chips on the racks and on the Conn/Ops consoles, as well as the LCARS for said consoles.

    The LCARS are using the colors from the Anchorage temporarily, as I'm just creating the panels for now, the final colors are still to be defined.

    The side graphics added to the circuitry access panels were created by Joe Ralat. I've reproduced them on Inkscape in order to get the resolution I needed, but they're his design.

    The viewscreen and the little window at the top got their textures as well. :p

    Great looking displays and whatnot. The bridge is really feeling alive now. :)
  • BolianAdmiralBolianAdmiral1177 Torrance, CaliforniaPosts: 2,621Member
    Wow... just wow. I can't believe how good that isolinear chip unit looks, now that it is populated with chips, lol. All the graphics look outstanding!

    You can almost smell the new carpets... :thumb:

    Thanks for the comments, indeed it's feeling alive now! :)

    I thought the tactical console would be a pain in the back to texture because of its shape, so I wanted to do the LCARS for it as soon as possible to get them out of the way. :lol: I've also added some further details below it per BolianAdmiral's suggestion to make the area look less empty.

    The vertical panels are also done, inspired by the Voyager panels which use the whole vertical space, rather than the TNG ones which only use a small area when not in alert mode.

    We've talked with BolianAdmiral a lot about the LCARS and found the color combination he liked the most for this bridge, which is the late-TNG orange/purple combination, so now all LCARS use those colors.

    I've also changed the colors of the carpets to make them closer to the late-TNG carpets. We might change them completely after the LCARS are done, but for now, I wanted them to be as close as possible to the real deal.

    Ugh, I LOVE those Iso panels! Freakin' gorgeous! We just need that colour somewhere else in the bridge to balance it out, I think. But otherwise... love it.
  • StarscreamStarscream231 Posts: 1,049Member
    I love that you put an Isolinear access below the tactical console, excellent idea! (all Galaxy/Nebula bridges should have this setup IMO). The uplighters are looking nice too :)

    Although I'm not a fan of the purple/orangeLCARS in general, this instance sort of makes sense to me - partly because this was almost always the "go-to" palette for ships of the week on TNG! :D I do however think that maybe the vertical strips need to be shunted a bit more towards the orange/purple end of the LCARS, as they're currently a little overwhelming with that much mustard yellow in the mix.

    You know it's funny, but the decals on the doors almost look like they're from sorta pre-TNG from a distance, which is kinda neat since the Nebulas are supposedly a little older than the Galaxy-class...

    Curious to see how you'll set up the rear consoles, now! :)

    I love them too. That's part of why I wanted the small iso-chip unit inside the aft of the tactical support - because I felt it would help break up that wall of solid beige, plus add a splash more of that color scheme to an area that was previously devoid of it.

    I know, right? Me, too! That's a large part of why I wanted it included... I kept looking at that area, and thinking to myself how bare it looked, even on the Enterprise-D, and wanting to fill that empty space up with something practical, yet small. I figured this would be the perfect solution.

    In my personal head-canon, as of now it's always been there. :D

    I hope you're going to give the tactical position a stool? Otherwise the middle display will be mighty awkward... ;)

    I just noticed the dark grill texture on the ceiling forward of the skylight Rekkert, awesome job!

    Great job on everything, it looks sweet. :thumb:

    I've tried with all the colors of the set and the yellow is actually the most muted one, and we wanted to keep the colors the same as on the rest of the LCARS.

    Nope, just standard issue Starfleet pain relievers. :lol:

    One of the easiest textures to create for this bridge hahaha.

    I've done all the LCARS on the front part of the bridge, so the command stations for the XO/Specialist are done, as well as the viewscreen LCARS, and the isolinear scan on the middle of the wall racks. Only the back stations to go!

    That last render is fantastic.

    I think I like this bridge better than the one from the TV show or the movie. You really put the best bits of every version of the bridge into one. I like the side displays, but you didn't clutter it up with extra chairs and consoles, like the "Yesterday's Enterprise" and "Generations" versions of the bridge. I like the isolinear holders, they add a lot of detail and color without going too much. The color scheme looks great, especially the addition of red with the door and console markings. And, lastly, I like that you added some bits from alternate versions of the bridge, such as the added bit on the tactical console and main viewer. Add it all together and it's really fantastic.

    Thank you SO much! When I first emailed Rekkert regarding this project, and my ideas for this bridge, decor-wise, I was honestly very afraid that it would end up looking "too busy". But I am VERY happy with how clean and uncluttered it ended up looking, and seeing feedback like yours really validates that the concept I had in my mind's eye was valid, and works.

    I keep telling Rekkert how thankful I am that he took this project on, and I can't say it enough... I get teary-eyed seeing the bridge I had in my mind for so many years come to life. This ship - the U.S.S. Quasar, is the main ship in the very first piece of Trek fanfic I wrote and posted on the Trek BBS, way back when, around 2003 or so, and I'm just awestruck seeing what a wonderful and PERFECT job Rekkert has done with it I've already told him that I am NOT joking - I plan to commission him to built the Quasar's Ready-Room, as well as the bridge of the U.S.S. Zodiac - a Cheyenne-Class ship from the same fanfic as the Quasar. I've already started designing the decor elements for the Quasar's Ready-Room.

    Thank you very much, that's high praise indeed! All the specific parts for the bridge were chosen by BolianAdmiral before we even started, he had a very clear vision of what he wanted for his ship, and it really is a great version indeed, very unique while still grounded on the familiar.

    Continuing with the progress, I've finished the aft consoles. The ship is almost ready to get out of spacedock!

    You're an evil, evil man. :mad: But, your 3D skills are sublime, so you're forgiven. :D

    Beautiful job as always; the layout is perfect. Personally I still keep most of the Nebulas with an older color scheme in my "head canon" but it's easy to see this as a newer ship of the line from a mid-2360s batch, fresh out of UPFY. And I can still smell that new carpet...

    BolianAdmiral, when was the Quasar commissioned? Do we get to see a plaque (what's her dedication quote)? And do you have a link to the old fic?

    Dammit, and I was going to ask what his commission rates are, too. It's not fair that you're monopolising him like this! :argh: :lol:

    (I'm sated by the fact that you're asking for a Cheyenne next though :thumb: )

    His rates are more than fair... it will be about a month or so before my next commission, so go ahead and contact him! You can see the immense quality of his work here!

    Regarding the fic, seeing this bridge come to life has inspired me to start posting a revised version, so look out for that soon in the fanfic section of this website.

    As for the commissioning plaque, the physical plaque will be located in the Ready-Room (it was also located here on the Nebula-Class USS Phoenix). The Quasar was commissioned in 2369, hence her registry number of NCC-71555. The motto on her plaque is a line taken from the song in the opening of the movie "Trekkies II" - "Outer space - way, way, out there!"

    The Zodiac's bridge will be very heavily influenced by the USS Brittain's bridge, but also have elements taken from the Sutherland and the Defiant, as well.

    Thank you all. :)

    We tried several different colors for the carpets on the bridge, but in the end BolianAdmiral preferred to keep the TNG style carpets, so the design is officially finished. I'm rendering some shots right now and will be posting them tomorrow.

    Thanks for the link! I'm currently pondering one of three different ideas, but will have to avoid letting myself run riot with the old wallet, as I'm having to pay for building work on the house... :argh:

    (I'll email later tonight :) )

    I still am in awe of how good this bridge turned out! I 100% love it! I want to live there! :D
  • StarscreamStarscream231 Posts: 1,049Member
    It's absolutely gorgeous!

    Though that said, I'm not sure about living there. I mean, sure the accommodations are luxurious, but all the onscreen evidence points to that ships with bridges of this type but which aren't named Enterprise don't exactly have a high survival rate! :D
  • RekkertRekkert4258 Buenos Aires, ArgentinaPosts: 2,326Member
    @Starscream: Thanks! :) Hahaha, we'll have to wait and read how the survival rate is for living there! :D

    Here's the cutaway view:

    So very beautiful! Aside from the quality of this model, I also can't believe this has all been created with Blender, lol... it looks to be an extremely capable program.
