Deck plan concept for the GALAXY Class USS Galaxy
(NCC-70637), illustrating the Main Bridge and compartments of the aft quarter of Deck 1.
This illustration was inspired by a forum exchange concerning an alternative station layout for this sort of bridge plan. Not content with the basic quick-and-dirty cut-n-paste Photoshop mash-ups I threw together for the concepts, I produced this detailed plan.
Conceptually, this is a direct heir to the far less refined "Galaxy Class Admiral's Bridge" illustration I produced some years ago (also in this gallery - [link]
), although I did not directly reference that prior plan for this new, from-scratch project. Like that prior work, this design reflects the same general distaste I hold for the volume-wasting layouts of so many sci-fi deck plans — canon or otherwise — and exhibits my general impression for what sorts of compartments and features would be found on this deck.
As illustrations go, this was a rapid piece of work that benefitted from my recent experiments with Adobe Illustrator's techniques for rapid schematic rendering, a growing library of components and furnishings, and lessons learned from previous deck plan projects.
