HOLY CRAP that's a lot of buttons. Saving that in my massive reference database.

Actually most of those are lights. Below them are lots of switches, and just a few knobs and buttons. Oh, and a few more lights.

I continue to be amazed at the creative minds here on dA.

I would never have gotten the idea to do Starship Enterprise's bridge in Mid-Century. mattwileyart how did you get the idea to do this/

I can see old Jim Kirk lounging in the center chair sipping a clean martini, smoking a Lucky Strike, and eyeballing Uhura's derriere.
This truly evokes the time period and its media. Nice job.

I dig your design. I was jokingly suggesting it should be featured on Home & Garden TV.

"Shmaltz"... That's the one thing that's missing. The voiceover and the lounge-session soundtrack for the advertisement before the main feature...

I'm sorry TheAtomcDog, I'm going to have to disagree with you. The best thing about this image is Kirk hitting on the girl in the turbolift![link]

The best thing about this mini-series is the text. Our Host certainly studied the advertsiting language of the period to lay on he saleman's shmaltz as well as he has.
Bonus points for the Asian-inspired grille at the entrance--complete with opaque fill-- and the wonderful reel-to-reel magnetic tape readers.
The knee-length, black skirts are actually somewhat conservative.
Also, the Enterprise emblem Our Host devised is quite invocative of stuff like this:

Again, Our Host knew their shit.

You are right on target on each point. I also thought the black skirts were the one thing that was off in this wonderful illustration.

I've been sitting back looking at this piece as something seemed familiar. The it came to me... Star Trek by Irwin Allen. ;)

Now I'm wondering what the Enterprise would have looked like if he were the executive producer?
