Hi from an original series die-hard like everyone else who has arrived here.

Wonderful site ... thanks for all of the great insights into the creativity that went into making displays that could have been slapped together to satisfy NBC's desire to have blinking colored lights anywhere a viewer looked to help RCA sell color TVs. Fortunately they were much more thanks to Gene's insistence on "believability," an insistence that has made the work hold up for nearly 50 years now.

Your pal in mutual love of Star Trek!

Recently found this website...I drift in and out of Star Trek....mostly out these days.

I use to work on Exeter as an electrician, prop maker. I created all of the Bridge panels out of expensive plexiglass which
I purchased myself, but donated to the project.

I beleive the designs ALL came from this website, so I am giving credit here. We used your patterns, whoever you are.
I saw on youtube that USS Ajax now owns the Exeter bridge. Good for them, I thought it was in a land fill myself.

After the project Exeter dissolved, or went into a 10 year limbo- I had some props still in my yard, but never got a response. People moved on I guess.

Bottom line, I plan to sell the Phasor Panel soon. It flashes lights in a simple firing as seen in the Tressuarian movie. Simple fanout pattern, w/12v adapter.

In a few months, I plan to sell off the Ships Chronometer. (working clockHave to do finishing touches converting to blue LED digits.
The filmed movie, they were all green, but not sure it even made it in the final scene.

Not doing this to get into the business of selling Props, just cleaning out my mental attic and perhaps see someone else use them in their Film productions.
eBay scares the heck out of me so not sure what avenue I will use....

Anyway, acknowleging the efforts here to the ships' designs. You do good work.

Hi reddalek.  I am one of the owners of Starbase Studios and we own the old Exeter bridge set along with the Ajax producer.  It is the main draw in our studio which is open to anyone who wants to film their own TOS fan production.  At this point we have 17 productions signed on to film here with the first release being Starship Valiant which came out on July 4th.  We are completely volunteer operated and funded by donations, we also do not charge anyone to film here.
 We would be very interested in adding the pieces back to the bridge set.  Our current chronometer is just a picture and we need a better one.  Please let me know what you would like for them, keeping in mind our limited funding.  Thanks

This is great what you have done in Oklahoma. It feels good to see the set being preserved for future Trek fans.
Other times it feels like someone is playing with my dead body...LOL.
When we did re-shoots (one of several), the sets were already requiring much work restoration...and this was 8, 9 years ago....I can imagine the headaches you guys had.

You put me in a difficult situation about 'donating' to the cause. I had spent $1000 of my own money for Exeter back in the day to try and help 'the Brothers Johnson'.
Plexiglass,marbles, special drill bits were not cheap....nevermind the hundreds of hours of my own labor....I think I've  'donated' enough.
Shame Jimm took 10 years to get out of an editing room of 6 mins of film...I misunderstand people when they say they are making a Film. Image

I may settle on something like $100 for the phasor panel.....Chronometer was a major wiring job, custom electronics of my own doing. I will need to think about that.

Howdy!
I keep forgetting this place is here, and am now attempting to more securely keep it in my radar! (Despite how much I hate Yuku, LOL.)
I work with feek61 on the Farragut Studios sets for Star Trek Continues (and other productions).

See you in the threads!
