23rd Century Junior Officers Quarters Unfurnished

In the later 2260s, the Constitution class was planning a refit of the ships originally launched in the 2240s. The last of the ships launched before the complete refit, the Challenger, in 2269, utilized the latest mix at the time of what had come before as standard and what was being propelled into the latter 23rd Century and would continue into the early 24th. This redesign included experiments with the quarters for the crew on starships. The office was removed and the quarters shrunk slightly for the junior officer, their offices, if needed, instead located elsewhere on the ship. The Senior Officers quarters maintained an office and lounge but were also re-designed following the features put forth in the Junior quarters. 

Before coming aboard, the officer could choose their quarters regular colors for part of the bulkhead, bed, dresser and bathroom fixtures as well as predominant lighting.  Officers were also offered a selection of printed material, several art reproductions, and their preference of location on board the ship. The goal was to instantly make their quarters feel more welcoming as well as allowing a certain level of customization on board for that officer without them having to carry many personal effects on board.

Officers that were on temporary assignment often just chose colors or used the colors from a previous officer rather than 'settling in' as they were only going to be on board for a few months.


Junior officers quarters revamp with a bed based off the Mike Minor preliminary artwork for Phase II and the general layout from Mr. Scott's Guide to the Enterprise. I forgot to put the exterior door in, so right now it's looking out onto Deck 7, where no quarters have gone before. :P  Yes it has a bathroom with a toilet and sink, no I didn't include a render here. Top is looking in on the bed from the 'foyer'. Middle is the view from just above the bed on the 'knick knack' or bookshelf towards the main entrance and where a comm and library terminal is located for communications and entertainment purposes. Bottom is looking through the bathroom glass door in on the Sonic shower which also has its door closed and is in its standard operating mode.

Built in Truespace 3.2
Rendered in DAZ Studio 4.10 with iRay.

This is great work. I could see this as having been use as a lay out in one of the movies.

Thanks!  Technically, it was. Just instead of the wall with the mirror and dresser, it was a complicated glass wall partition that led into Kirk's office area.  As a series layout, it's pretty much perfect for that. you have one of those wall plugs like they had in Engineering for TNG and drop that into place and slide in a dresser facade and bam, you just turned your senior officer's quarters into a Junior Officer's quarters. 

Granted, I'm doing it in reverse. Built the Junior's quarters and now I'm about to bust out a wall to build the adjoining office for the Senior officers ;)

I see the foyer entrance as also containing an emergency door- something that can slam shut in case of a hull breach or sudden decompression.A last chance effort to save the cabin occupant.

Hrmm.. A possibility that I hadn't thought of, but it's slightly more reinforced as a frame size for a door and I could see a 'roll up' or slide out emergency doors that could fit in that space. I like it. :)

I'd go with a sliding door. Roll downs are inherently flimsy. You can reinforce a sliding door. Whatever you do, I would not go with a force field. If something were to cause a hull breach, that same something could take out the power- which would mean no force field when you'd need one most.

You did the bed! I never really understood the foyer-that's-not-really-a-foyer thing, but I like that you put a console in it.

Heh. I made a passable attempt at the bed anyway. ;)  Yeah the foyer is kind of weird to be honest, but ... well there it is.  I was going to put art or something there, but I figured just because the Junior Officer doesn't have an office, doesn't mean they won't want to call home, do a little research or watch a film or listen to some music.
