My recent collab with PDSmith on the TOS Stateroom tickled a muse I hadn't had in a while. So I've pulled the Destroyer Corridor parts out of mothballs and I'm working on what I'd originally called a Throwback set before I'd decided to drop it on a Destroyer. This is a set of corridors using the parts from the Destroyer Corridors, but revamped to match the height and sections of the original Desilu Stage 9 set. I started with one side of the set and need to work on the other, but I think it's coming along. I also need to work on the doors and 'Jefferies' entries that will slot in there.  I'm probably just going to throw in my corridor and vertical Jefferies set rather than try and fit the slanted tube into this, but it'll be in the same location. 

Biggest change that's carried over, instead of just having an A frame doorway, I've made sections that are A framed that join in along where the A frame doorways were. I don't know if I'm going to model the wall greebles beyond the wall com or not. There are going to be more Phase II styled alert indicators hanging along the rafters as well.  The whole idea with this is that it's a Technology Original Standard layout and feel but could easily fit between or in place of TOS and TMP. 

I'm also borrowing some floor detailing from In A Mirror Darkly from Enterprise and I'm toying with the idea of doing up a version that would work on Discovery. Basically it'll mean making the floor glossy. 

I'll be puttering along on this one as time allows. I've got a few other things cooking up at home including finishing up the Phase II uniforms. 

Built in Truespace 3.2

Hey! I know that layout.  :-)  I like your start, way more than I'd have gotten.

They put me on conference calls I don't need to be on at work and I WILL play.

Those red I-beams are classic to Trek.  Also, that red metal ladder between decks as an alternative to waiting for a turbolift.

I didn't want to make too many changes. ;)

Excellent 'balance' between classic and 'neo-retro'.

Yeah I'm trying to work it in along the lines of Gene's thinking with TMP where he was all like "trek was always like this in appearance, we just didn't have the budget" but I'm of the opinion you can up the production value a bit and keep that iconic look a bit.
