Yes, I know it looks like a Klingon Bird of Prey ship; what a lot of people might not know, is that, originally, in Star Trek III, the BoP was supposed to be a Romulan design, stolen by Kruge and his crew, and refitted with Klingon equipment.
However, during the production stages, it was changed into a completely Klingon ship.

This is a LCARS (Library Computer Access and Retrieval System) panel, from the Romulan version. Figured they needed more stuff out there. :)

I absolutely adore this. You don't happen to have a higher resolution of this one, do you? Say something around 1300 x 800? If not it's okay, it's beautiful nevertheless. :)

I'll see what I can do. :)

I love you!

I mean... awesome. I don't suppose you'd know how to make themes for Vista? I don't know how, and would LOVE a Romulan interface on my computer. I've looked up Trek themes, but I just get slightly modified themes with a Trek background. I want it to actually look like a Romulan console.

Well, if my wife doesn't mind... :D

Sorry, I don't. :( But, I can ask around; I might be able to dig up some help. :)

I'm actually trying to make one. I don't seem to be a natural at using the program, so it's coming along slow. Hopefully it ends up looking good.

Oh, and your work inspired me to make one of my own. D'Deridex class console.

:D

Nice! :)

Have faith! I'm sure it'll work out just fine. :)

Romulans are one of my two favorite Trek baddies (Q is the other one, but hey)!

Guess it has something to do with my love for the Vulcans (what is it with me and planets with orange skies?)

Woo-hoo ST3! Love that one. And 4, 5, 6, and First Contact.

You're not exactly accurate - originally it was going to be piloted by Romulans, period, but halfway through making the movie they decided to change the characters to Klingons for some reason. But by that time they had already made the expensive filming model, so they kept the ship's design.

Ask that Bernd guy if you don't believe me. :XD:

Bernd? What does he know, with his web site & engineering degrees... :D :D

Not a whole lot about TOS, that's for sure!! He's totally in the TNG camp - all he's good for when it comes to TOS is retconning it (which isn't good at all!!). :XD:

Still, wouldn't want to get on his bad side; I've read some of his comments. :D

Sweet design!
Carthoris's avatar
Thanks. :)

Like the other Romulan, the hardest part was decided which colours to use. :)

Maybe a Vulcan, next time 'round...
