    This is related to Rekkert's work: here's another commission that was done for me using one of Rekkert's sets (the Galaxy transporter room in this instance).

    I've done a quick redress commission for @Rusty0918 , the Miranda-Class USS Shockley NCC-21165; a "ship of the week" which will appear in the 'Galaxy Chronicles'. Some of the elements are inspired on its sister ship, the USS Brattain (Shockley and Brattain were co-inventors of the transistor), such as the green color of the walls (same exact shade as the TNG transporter room) and the details on the aft console mirroring the console behind the captain on the Brattain.
    Unlike the canon ship however, the Shockley has the same physical configuration as the USS Saratoga from DS9, with the sensor pods at each side of the hull rather than the rollbar.
    During this commission I took the chance of redoing the Enterprise-C style Captain's chair, making the sides one continuous piece rather than two as they were before.

    I have another redress coming up for him, though it'll be a somewhat more involved one.

    I like the use of the green color. However, I’ve never been a fan of the captain’s head being in front of and so close to those consoles that have been know to explode.... :#

    @JMP11 - I don't do exploding consoles that much in my stories because they've been used way too many times.

    I like the layout and the Brittain green color. Not really feeling the choice of carpet colors to go with the rest of the set, but that’s just me. But overall, I like it. It looks small enough to be cozy, yet open and spacious enough not to feel cluttered or claustrophobic.

    This is a great looking bridge and I am loving the green.
  • cool65cool65171 Posts: 20Member
    Well, that green room may be bad idea. Something almost dark as gray or tan as wood like old room.

    I've started work on the mentioned second redress for Rusty0918, which is the 2376 version of the USS Galaxy battle bridge.

    This one is a substantial redress of the Odyssey bridge, with an added level for the Captain's chair, completely different door alcoves, and a new back wall taking some elements from the Bradbury bridge. I still have several key bits to change, including all the floor light sources to a different style and color.

    I know it's a bit dark for now, but things will light up considerably once I add the LCARS back in, not to mention tweak the grate light effects.

    I've modified the grate lights a bit, adding an emissive plane on top of the point light, so that the dark areas aren't completely black as they were before. The back area's still quite dark though, I might have to add additional lights in there.

    I've also started adding the LCARS back in, and modified the aft buttresses to have a Prometheus-style cutout.

    Could you make the the textures for that Voyager circuitry larger so that it's two columns for each panel instead of three? I think that would look better. Furthermore, if you could remove those side standing stations away from the bulkheads some, that would be good too.
  • RekkertRekkert654 Buenos Aires, ArgentinaPosts: 1,707Member
    @Rusty0918: Sure, I'll try making those details bigger. As for the side stations, I already did that. :p

    I've swapped the floor lighting panels to the curvier version from the last battle bridge, and made the lighting there blue.

  • Rusty0918Rusty0918186 Posts: 348Member
    Ah, that's much better with regards to those aft side consoles! I do wonder how easy it would be to change the lighting of the aft stations to a more Voyager style of lighting, roughly the same kind that is seen above the Voyager MSD and aft stations here: https://forums.scifi-meshes.com/uploads/editor/id/2rrx4vd88gif.png ?

    Your interiors are gorgeous. Just saying.
    JMP11 made a comment about panels exploding near the captain's head (Enterprise D and others). I never thought about that before. Good point.

    It's nice to see that you're still doing the great Star Trek interiors. :)
  • RekkertRekkert654 Buenos Aires, ArgentinaPosts: 1,707Member
    @BlueNeumann: Glad you do! :)

    @Rusty0918: Mmm, that shouldn't be too hard to do above the two aft stations.

    @TrekMD: Thank you very much!

    @Brandenberg: Thanks! :) Yeah, exploding consoles on Trek are always very... picky, they don't target main characters. :p

    @evil_genius_180: I'm thankful to still be able to call this a job. :)

    I decided to work on a personal project during the weekend. I received a commission request for a Lantree style bridge, aka an inverted TNG battle bridge. That commission is still a long way off (if it happens, as it's not confirmed), but it did start a little spark of inspiration in me. I decided to do something like it all the same.

    I wanted to go for a non-canon, smallish TMP era craft, so I ended up choosing the Merced-Class as depicted at ASDB. This is a favorite of mine, having previously done a schematic style graphic for it. That last bit was a big deciding factor, as it meant I already had the basis for any ship specific okudagrams I'd need.

    Given the date of launch and registry, I went for an Enterprise-B style (though with a bigger budget, I'm not planning on using any boat seats here). It's still very much unfinished, as you can see, it's just an idea for now. When I continue with it, I'll probably remove that hideous brown, it doesn't look as good on such a simpler design as it does on the busier Excelsior-Class bridge. I might rework the area behind the Captain's chair as well, it looks like a lot of wasted space right now.

    As ever, ideas, comments, and critiques welcome.

    It's definitely very interesting, with what is normally a main viewer behind the command chair.

    That a small bridge, but I like it.
  • RekkertRekkert654 Buenos Aires, ArgentinaPosts: 1,707Member
    On the Galaxy battle bridge, I'm nearly done with the LCARS, I only have to add in the MSD for the aft alcove. All that's left after that is finding some place to add in the weapon lockers and replicator, plus some tweaks on the ceiling.

    tadeo-d-oria-c3-11.jpg?1559642278

    As for the Merced, I've swapped a bunch of stuff around. First of all I returned the Captain's platform to its original location, more central to the layout, and added in two more wall facing stations behind it. The consoles are floating for now, I plan on adding support struts connecting them to the wall (similar to the console we see in Kirk's quarters on board the refit).

    On the front wall, I've created new buttresses with a wall facing light, and a completely new viewscreen. Both new elements are still in progress. I've also moved or removed most of the white decals from the walls.

    Finally, I've also tweaked the shape of the Captain's chair. This was the very first chair design I did for a commission, and it's showing its age, so I sculpted the fabric bits somewhat to have a somewhat more realistic shape. Still nowhere near perfect though.

    Both bridges are looking great. I especially like the battle bridge. That looks like it would work nicely as a main bridge for a number of ships.
  • ashleytingerashleytinger278 Central OhioPosts: 377Member
    I like the changes so far on the smaller bridge. Neat take on it!

  • Rusty0918Rusty0918186 Posts: 348Member
    @evil_genius_180 - It's based off of a bridge set used several times in DS9 before finally being used as a general Defiant interior.

    @Rekkert - Don't forget the ceiling holographic projector (it's like that holographic thing on the Potemkin's briefing room's conference table except on the ceiling, in front of the command chair, so that the CO and tactical officer can have 3-D tactical views projected in front of them (as opposed to 2-D tactical displays).

    @evil_genius_180: Thanks! Indeed, it has a ton stations for a battle bridge, I could imagine the same module as-is would fit in nicely for a main bridge.

    @ashleytinger: Thanks!

    @scifieric: Thank you very much!

    @Rusty0918: I hadn't forgot about that, hence why I mentioned "tweaks on the ceiling". ;)

    Speaking of which, I've added the holoprojector to the ceiling; plus the weapon lockers on the back wall (really, the only wall with any space left), and the MSD at the back.

    I know, it's dark.

    The set actually has a history that goes back to the 1970s. It started off as the Phase II/TMP bridge set and, with minor alterations, was used in the next three movies. With much heavier modifications, it became the TNG battle bridge, and was further modified to be other bridges and other rooms entirely. (the courtroom in "The Measure of a Man," for example.) The cost of returning it to battle bridge configuration is why we hardly saw the ship separate, as was originally the intent when it went into battle.

    I believe this configuration is the one from "The Best of Both Worlds, Part Two," which was the last time we saw the battle bridge. Prior to that, we saw hadn't seen it since season 1, when it still had the TMP turbolift alcoves. And, of course it went on to be used on DS9 and Voyager.

    As wit the aft alcove lighting, perhaps we can add two of those vertical sconces, one beside each door. That might help!
  • BlueNeumannBlueNeumann277 Posts: 1,028Member
    As the Battle Bridge, it really didn't fit in with the Galaxy Class aesthetic, so I do wish they had done a newer design at some point, possibly Best Of Both Worlds. But at that point it feels like they knew they wouldn't do many more stories that required separation.
  • Rusty0918Rusty0918186 Posts: 348Member
    @evil_genius_180 and @Rekkert - the main reason it has so many stations for a battle bridge is because it's far more frequently used. In fact, this is where the captain prefers to command the Galaxy from after her refit. Also she's expected to use the saucer separation a lot more - primarily because the ship has four Class II rapid fire phaser pulse cannons tucked in its dorsal drive section for use when separated as seen here:
