Giant 23 foot Star Trek Voyager model restoration #StarTrek @StarTrek @thenewstarship
The 23 foot (7 meter) 1/50 model of the USS Voyager from Star Trek: Voyager has a new home. Originally built the Star Trek Vegas Experience, it was first offered to The Star Trek Enterprise Bridge Restoration folks, but they deemed it too big for their planned exhibition.
The model was purchased by Hayes who is working on a restoration.
He goes on to post:
Some preliminary rough draft ideas for what I’d like to do with the model. I want to create some dynamicism (is that a word or did I make it up?) so that it has lots of things going on no matter which view you have of it.
Walking around it will have fun little points of interest along the way. I may even make little info plaques explaining some of them like “in the episode Prey, species 8472 walked along the hull and broke into the ship to find a safe space to heal”. Or things like that. Lol anyway. Just brainstorming for what I could accomplish. What do you think? Do you have any fun or interesting ideas? A warp core ejection that can slide out and back in would be cool but I’m just assuming the model wouldn’t be able to accommodate the mechanism inside. But let’s hear some wild ideas!
See the video below and more on Facebook and Twitter. And see Adafruit’s pictures etc. of the exhibition in the blog post here.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
