TOS Stateroom WIP 06 by ashleytinger TOS Stateroom WIP 06 by ashleytinger
I completely redid the Starfleet Pennant table matching it almost exactly from the way it showed up in one of the trial episodes of the original series. Then I wanted to see it pieced together so far, so the kitchen pieces are there, including the ever important coffee maker, and I dropped the living room in where it's going to go.  Obviously materials aren't all set yet, but right now it's all about layout, spacing and shape. 

I'm thinking of doing a full blown dining table and then like a breakfast nook by the window but I haven't settled on a dining table design I like yet. Probably going to model up the TOS bed and side tables along with a dresser next. I'm thinking that off section of the bedroom could be a closet or changing area. I'll have to let PDSmith decide which bed he wants to use later. ;)

Built in Truespace 3.2
Collab with PDSmith

Thanks!  Not my usual design aesthetic, but I'm learning to appreciate the complicated simplicity of TOS even more doing this :)

That was one of the tricks I ran into while doing Nova Trek- staying within the TOS "feel" while doing something original at the same time. Viewports are a good example of this. The Captain's cabin is clearly set against the outer hull. Yet, where are the viewports on the set? They're on the ship model. There was one in "The Cage" above Pike's bed. But they did away with it in the regular episodes. I put it back. Same thing with rooms we never saw like the computer room and specimen storage.

*nod nod*  It's a lot trickier I think. You want it to look like low budget sci-fi without necessarily feeling it.

(With a stern tone) Don't take the view that CBS took. Just because the designs are over 50 years old doesn't make them unusable. I've said this elsewhere: If NG, DS9 and Enterprise could use TOS designs and have them work just fine so can everyone else.
 I look at it this way: Within the Star Trek Universe, If NG, DS9 and Voyager were the 21 st, century, TOS would be the 19th. Now, If you're standing in the 21st century and you have an idea for a story that takes place in the 19th, you're going to respect the era. right? You're not going to replace horse-drawn carriages with cars, right? The same rules should apply to Star Trek.

Even when I re-imagined my TOS stuff I didn't go that far. It was more like a cross of TMP/Phase II and TOS. The Destroyer sets I was working on are what I had in mind for that. Not saying I don't like what they did with the Enterprise bridge in Discovery, but the original look is pretty iconic. But yeah, this is definitely sticking more with the TOS vibe than anything else.
