Hi folks. For your enjoyment I am ready to post a few pictures of my full scale STAR TREK bridge science station build. (The pictures were taken with my phone camera so they're not that great. The moire' will not photograph well at all in any case but it works and is awesome. Will post more professional versions soon.)
Being a ST TOS fan since I was a kid in 1976, I've always wanted to walk onto the bridge of the Enterprise. I wanted to build a larger full length version of Spock's station but space was limited. I elected to build the science station over other set pieces because I felt it had the most bang for the effort; plenty of blinking lights, buttons and switches, colors and spinning things and displays. I spent alot of time scaling it to a few known dimensions and feel it is really quite accurate...even down to the placement of the objects. There are a couple personal choice differences for various reasons but they are pretty minor.
The whole display took about 6 months working a few hours a day (including many during the worst summer on record here in the USA in a top floor apartment building.)
But I enjoyed every minute of it and hope you do to.
