    I recently got my Kirk desk replica (as seen in his quarters) built by our very own HDtheater here on the RPF. After I added my bridge chair it's now a working desk which I love. It now sits in the corner of my prop room but as you can see, thye two walls in front are bare. I'd like to put something on them that lends itself to a genera TOS theme.

    I'd rather not do a poster or any Trek uniform pieces. I do have a god bridge plaque and a red intercom unit that I'm getting ready to put up but that's it.
    I wecome any ideas to make this display complete!

    Yeah, it was a kit off of eBay like 8 years ago. It needed a lot of work but I added lights and sound to it.

    I know you said no posters, but what about rotating the table 90 degs. counter clockwise, put the chair between the table and the wall, and hang this framed picture behind you?

    Awesome table and chair by the way!

    And while I was cruising "Court Martial" pics, I spotted this wall art. Would look cool and is probably easy to make.

    My local sub-shop has counters that look kind of like that.

    Metal surface polished, and then circles lightly ground in.

    Sort of like this....

    file_1_5.jpg

    The shops counters circles are in ordered rows, not overlapped and look more like the artwork.

    It's called "jewelling", and it shouldn't be too hard to find.

    BTW: maybe the door chime they have now that does the red alert thing:

    gonna have to scour over the web to look for it at party supply stores.
    if we knew the pattern name it would make it 10,000 times easier.

    The original material isn't available but there is material out there that is close.
    This pic is from Star Trek Phase II.
    You could probably ask them where to get it from.

    Do you know what it's called (or how I would refer to it at the fabric store?
    The woodwork should be pretty easy.

    I'd like to know too. I'm doing a Star Trek office so those background pieces would be cool.

    Do you want this corner of the room to look like a set or does it just need to be Trek related?

    So long as it's TOS related, we're pretty open. Hell, if I could get me hands on a Vulcan harp (lute) that would solve a big part of the problem!

    Re: Need ideas for a Star Trek display

    Hmm perhaps I'm a bit late on this but how about a see through bulk ead? Not geographically correct but how about if that desk was set directly under a window that looked out into hmm lets say the warp core? You could make a "window" frame with detailed surround and under some plexii glass have a scaled view from some part of the ship. That might be cool?

    You can do that with a hand-drill or drill press and a wire cup. Do an even overlapped pattern and you get that.

    Well, after a few months I decided to go with something I really needed...more prop space! So I added a few extra shelves and I did a little McCoy display to the right of the desk. Plus, I now have a space to put Nomad!

    Nicely done... although it appears that Kermit has a question regarding the placement of Nomad. :)

    What caught my eye in your photo, Funky Jedi, was that renewal mask from Logan's Run. I always like seeing some love for that movie :)

    Logan's Run should be required watching for RPF membership.
