Arboretum | Star Trek: Theurgy

By Auctor-Lucan
A cut-away view of the arboretum on the USS Theurgy. The raw base image was made by Bobye2 for Star Trek: Theurgy in Zoner Calisto 4, and then expanded and edited by yours truly in Zoner Calisto 5 and Photoshop CS5. 

UPDATE: I love the images in Star Trek Fact Files showing the interiors of the ships on the shows, and I noticed how they conveyed a sense of scale by adding officers to them. With this in mind, I have now done so for our own interior images as well, and along with that, I have also hidden a few easter eggs for you all to find. :) Some of Bobye's interior details are unknown to me, but I have identified 3D warehouse models from Colin E and Borgman so far.

Other cut-away interiors:

Main Forum page: Star Trek: Theurgy

Star Trek: Theurgy is kind of a progressive novel, composed of large long-lasting story arcs that can go on through several Episodes, as well as the more common plots produced by character interaction. All of this is written cohesively by the writers, edited and corrected by the group and the Game Moderator to assure a consolidated storyline. Other terms for this kind of community are "sim" or "play-by-post/forum roleplaying". 

"What kind of writers are we looking for at Star Trek: Theurgy?"

We're looking for good, descriptive and creative writers that can handle English well. You should also know enough about the Star Trek Universe to be able to partake in creating intense, interesting storylines together with the other writers. We are a very literate group, with a minimum posting requirement of 200 words per post, and the commitment to the story is long-term. We have been running the story actively for five years, and we will continue for many years to come. Therefore, we are not interested in casual, brief commitments, but something that will last for many years.

"What's the nature of the story?"

Star Trek: Theurgy is a detailed, quite dark, story-driven and long-term roleplay and while it's rated 18+, it is not some shoe-horned excuse to write Star Trek smut scenes. If that's what you are looking for, you can look elsewhere since you'll be really disappointed.

It is not expected of any of our writers to detail the intimate relations of their characters with others, even if it's allowed. Several writers among us have an aversion to writing graphic sexual scenes, so if that's not what you care for, then that's no problem at all. The story revolves around a ship and a crew in dire straits, against impossible odds, and with a lot of intrigue and mystery to it. We just don't enforce limits on what you care to write, like explicit scenes of violence or intimacy, as long you adhere to our General Rules and all writers consent to the specific scene their characters are in.

"How do I join the story?"

This page should serve quite well for an answer, but it's recommended you contact the Game Moderator if you have any questions: Joining the Crew.

For high-light plants; you need around 40 watts per square foot for optimal growth. Using the people as reference, I'd guess the room is 100x100 feet. 10,000 square feet. But I'm gonna even it out to 40 meters by 40 meters (17,200 sq ft) requiring 40 watts per sq foot, that's 688 kilowatts of power to light the rooms plantlife, with a day/night cycle. That's 12-14 hours of sunlight, about 400 kilowatts. Easily provide-able with even a small fusion reactor. Add to it what I assume to be water pumps and membrane bioreactors for recycling bio wastes, the arboretum would consume probably 2 megawatts of power. Or about 28 megawatt-hours per day.

Looks a lot like the one on the Enterprise-D.
Auctor-Lucan's avatar
Yep! It was the inspiration. :)

Looks like some Japanese-themed cultural items could be added to this by the good Captain Ives to reflect s/he's cultural upbringing. ^^
Auctor-Lucan's avatar
Lol, s/he wouldn't impose his culture upon others in such a blatant way.

Bobye did the same for my ship although you're's looks a lot prettier…

I don't supose you do commisions?
Auctor-Lucan's avatar
Unfortunately not, sorry! Bobye was awesome in how he could provide me with the basis for my interior designs, both as images and Zoner Calisto files, but I have spent many, many hours editing in Zoner and Photoshop to make them as they are now. I do not have that time to spend outside the Theurgy project, unfortunately.
could you do an arboretum on both hulls of the TOS enterprise? I think I've fainted. Giggle Clap Love Nod
