Quick update

Not mush done lately been super busy with work and some home improvement still some little things to finish to keep my wife happy so I can start building my captain chair. I’ve decided to build it myself and ask a company I found close to my house for the seat cover and probably the foam required.

Here’s some photos :

Carpet completed!

Captain’s log, stardate 94510.18, finally the carpet on the bridge is done ! Our next mission will be the captain’s chair, too bad Trip is not on board. It’s hard not to get excited ! 🙂
One big step completed I’ll be working on smaller stuff now, my captain’s chair of course but also some minor things (painting to fix, lights, doors for the cabinet, install the main viewscreen, etc…). I’ll post more photos on each step.

Hi everyone, my name is Frank I’m a software engineer, I live in Quebec Canada (feel free to correct my English) and as you will see; kind of a Star Trek Fan 🙂 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 the 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.

I can open it and still have the window. 3rd door: Turbolift well elevator to downstairs, It’s not done yet but everything ready I keep the best for last :).

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 :
