    Hey everyone, I started a thread about this, but I was surprise that very little information is around about this prop. I was looking over the ST2 Dvd and seen that the blueprint was seen on the dvd. So I put it together and was hoped that someone has large photos of the Genesis Device.

    No don't build Genesis! You'll doom us all! Genesis doesn't work! In the wrong hands it'll bring universal armageddon! :cry

    Well all right, here's what I got. :lol

    Just a bunch of screen caps via Trekcore.. cleaned em up. Perhaps there's more out there!

    Don't forget the big COMMIT light on the console. :)

    No. No, you can't get away. From hell's heart, I stab at thee. For hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee!!!!!! :D

    Thanks for the photos!
    I know one of the ST Magazines has the Control for the Genesis Device, when I find it I will post it in the thread.

    ...The coroner report states that Kahn died of extreme styrofoam poisoning! That`ll teach him to chew on the scenery!

    I've never seen anyone tackle this before. Good luck - I'm sure you will find it is more complicated than you may think.

    Wasn't the control panel (and possibly the Genesis device itself) rented from Modern Props?"

    I am going to go out on a limb and take a wild guess that it will turn out to be a stack of bird feeders. :D

    As cool as it would be to have the device itself, it would also be cool to have a set of the blueprints. Maybe on a backlit computer display?

    Get me the corect size of the clear case and I'll get you a cost on having it made. Glass, pyrex, lexan and some other "clear" mediums could be used. Same friend who made the glass for my Godzilla Oxygen Destroyer's could do this easy.

    The blueprint in the first post has the dome as 8", I will use that to try to get the other measurements.

    They might have started with an idea of 8" but it's bigger then that. Look at the picture with Bones and Kirk, DeForset Kellys head would fit inside the "cap" easy....Not Shatners though, his head might try to squezze in but his Ego would pop it out :lol
    For my money I'd say, hmmm, more then 12" but less then 14"

    The 8 could be the radius so it could ned up being 16.

    I added a new photo.

    You can get a little clue to the overall height of the Genesis torpedo by comparing how it appears in the Reliant transporter room...

    [​IMG]

    The perspective is different in the two scenes but you can see that the torpedo virtually fills the available space in the chamber.

    I did some research recently. The dome is 12" diam by 6" tall. The cylinder is 12" diam by 5' tall. It stands 4" off the ground. It is basically a 3" tube on the inside with 4 sets of 4 opaque disks on the bottom half and top half. Fairly simple basic structure. Very hard to come by non-screen-captured reference materials. Thanks to all who posted those and additional photos. Any more...?

    Cool :cool . Did you do proportion calculations from the screencaps or did you have another source ?

    Mostly screen caps from the DVD plus a search for "genesis device images" on Google.
    The DVD's special features disc briefly shows the preliminary blueprints, but the final prop varies somewhat. Not a lot to go on, but that's the challenge.

    All done! (Except for the decals on the outside.) Looks spot-on. I'll post photos if I get the time.

    Completed 8/14/14. Pretty good considering the lack of clear reference photos and fuzzy, fleeting shots of it in the movie, IMHO. :D

    seeing as tho they always reuse things from movie to movie. could the origins of the genesis probe be that cylinder they used with spfx to light the bridge in the motion picture when the alien probe takes ilia.
