Starship Interiors
OK, give us an indication of how you depict your starship interiors..... what inspiration do you draw from?

They all look like the Gemini space capsule, lots of sheet aluminum, phillips head screws and exposed wire harnesses wrapped in electrical tape. :)

It depends. They're either modled off naval ships (WWI to modern), submarines or more tramp-steamer like.

Outposts look and feel much like "Outland", military starships are similar to
modern real world navy ships, civilian starships likewise to modern civilian

Alien. Outland. Bladerunner.

Gimme that dirty, gritty, "lived in" look. Functional. Industrial.

Star Wars, Babylon 5, Traveller Art ( -1995). Basic, fuctional interiors.

Just about everything. Depends on the starship, the TL and the builders.

I ask because I've just 'illustrated' a Navy ship in my solo game (by pulling images off the web).

But I also just toured HMS Belfast, the WW2 battleship moored up in London, and as I poked around it, all I could think of was Traveller ship - and could not stop making mental notes of where the showers were, how big the sickbay was, what the space on the command centre was like, etc.The engine room was .. wow... pipe and dial heaven!!! THis is the errm, steering room. No windows - you get told where to point the thing.

I tried to find some Outland interiors on the web with zero results, which is a pity, there are so many great sets in that movie; the rec room, cabin, corridor, hydroponics, airlock, EVA room, miner's quarters, plus the great exterior shots etc.

I need stills!

Any links appreciated.
