I’ve been feeling a bit creatively stifled lately, I don’t know how often others feel that way. The set dressing I did gave me an idea to try and kitbash some more sets and I thought “What would the operations center of a large TOS era space station look like?” Here’s what I’ve got so far.

I use comic life. I think the version I use is 1.3. Though they do have version 2. Bout the time version 2 came out I was more than halfway into my comic. I tried using version 2 but it did something wacky with the spacing of the font I was using. Could’ve been something in the file that it didnt like since it was from a previous version.

Or, you can do like I do and design your own layout as you go along. I use Photoshop Elements 10 to do Nova Trek.

I find that comic life saves me time and it’s pretty cheap.

It doesn’t take me long to position the panels once they’re rendered. It’s gathering the characters and buiilding the sets that takes so long.

Comming Soon…

Oh, yes, she renders stunningly. No post-render issues or problems. Loads straight out of the gate and works wonderfully.

(pre-render, has the usual missing panels, but as others have said, I can live with that, as long as it doesn’t screw the render.)

Works perfectly in Daz Studio 4, too.

Amazing work, Matty. smile

Ditto, especially now with an iPad version, it’s even easier finding spare time to use it.

I think 6 Space Traffic Control stations may be too many.

My story behind this station is that Star Fleet would use stock components when things were needed in a hurry, so the saucer section of the Constitution class is being used as the central hub of the space station because of it’s arrangement of living quarters and amenities. It would be augmented with a docking array, repair facilities and reactor core.

Six stations is not out of line for a station control center, though they would not necessarily all be traffic control.  I would lay them out as

2 Traffic Controllers (Inbound and Outbound), 1 Communications, 1 Station Physical Engineering (Station Maintenance), 1 Station Environmental Engineering (Atmosphere, Food, and Water), and 1 Station Logisitcs Control (Inbound/Outbaound cargo, storage and accounting of supplies, Personnel services, etc).
