Hi everyone, my name is Frank I’m a software engineer, I live in Quebec Canada (feel free to correct┬ámy English) and as you will see; kind of a Star Trek Fan ­čÖé I’m building a replica of the Enterprise NX-01 Bridge for my home office. It’s not a 100% accurate but Inspired by it. First reason I’m limited by┬áthe size it’s about 60-65% smaller than the original. I’ve been dreaming of this idea for almost 15 years now. And last year I finally have a place to do it. So it’s 21′ x 27′ with a cathedral ceiling of 10’5″.

Enough talk let see it!

Here’s is a view from what will be the situation room. I’m presently working on the main door (bottom) and the railings still some painting to do on the doors cause I’m waiting to get a blue metallic paint I’ve ordered. The carpet arrived this week as soon as the railings and painting are done that will be next move.

Let me know what you think, I’ll post more photos as I go on the project. I’ve been working on this project alone for about 6 mounts now, working on the weekend and some week night so it’s slow progress. But I’m getting there hopefully I’ll be done (most of it) in a few weeks. I’ll still need to find my captain chair I’m looking for a car seat any idea of a car that have seats that look like this :
