Finished up 21 today. Can that really be?

This was a long time in the making. There's a backup story featuring Captain Pike and his crew, and that made for some complicated building. As before, I set my tale a few years after "The Cage", so I'm using the "older" Spock from "Where No Man has Gone Before", and also Scotty, Kelso and Dr. Piper from the same episode. Which meant bouncing around my online image sources, since I have not downloaded all the shots as with the actual TOS pics. Slows things down! But I did get to make practical use of the Pike era Bridge model I built a while back.

I resisted giving Pike white temples, as much as I enjoy the Reed Richards analogy!

A peek:

Young Mr. Kirkman will no doubt appreciate the Olympian effort that went into NOT placing that guy with the clipboard next to the Captain's chair!

++++++++

Indeed!


Fun fact--that extra appears in both TOS pilots! Like Spock, he apparently stuck with the ship for many, many years without visibly aging! 

I like to imagine that he hung around to keep trying to hand that same clipboard to Kirk, years after Pike left.

Dang! Just noticed the Pike figure has shifted down a bit, so his legs are not properly aligned with the railing. Easy to fix, but grrrrrrrrrr!

A set under construction for the current issue. Yes, a time travel story -- kinda. Also, a wee joke I could not resist, this time as part of the model, rather than just cut and paste.

Blur and noise added.

ēē

One of the models that comes bundled with Strata is a duck decoy, so I thought why not!

Here's one for y'all. For the issue currently in the works, what's this set for?

Looks like it could be a Starfleet HQ office. I like the Egyptian bust.

I like the painting on the wall in the office - how did you get a picture of my mother kissing James Kirk? (you guys are seeing that too, right???)

Cool. In grand TOS fashion the Nefertiti bust may be reused over and over.

I can see Supervisor 194 walking these floors.

I like that the office looks realistic and modern, but it still evokes the late 1960s production design of the show.

Great stuff, JB!

I set myself a bit of a challenge there, Tim. The time travel aspect of this story is set in 2018 -- echoing TOS's way of time traveling to the year of production -- but I still wanted some whisper of that Matt Jeffereies design ethic.

It's a nice blend of now (or at least our current fascination with mid-century modern design) and of a 1960's idea of what the 2010's might look like.   

Works for me.   

(and it sure as heck beats trying to shove aside 1960's designs and shoehorn modern stylistic sensibilities into it -- something the NuTrek and DISCOVERY designers don't seem to comprehend!).

Received my comps of 20 today. Looks pretty good, altho there are still some panels that run a little too dark. Extensive use of new "sets" look pretty seamless to my eyes. We'll see what you all think.

A new set "doodle" for which I hope to find use. . .
