N.S.E.A. Protector Blueprint Project

Current Status

JUNE 14, 2003 - As Part of the Technical Manual, I've been playing around with simple deck plans of the Protector.  Currently It's just a side profile, but as I work on the cross-sections I'll start fleshing out fill deck plans... don't hold your breath for the full set of deck plans,  that'll be a 2004-2005 project at best.  I Put up the preliminary print in a week or so.

JUNE 14, 2003 - Minor Update - As the WHIP viewer in longer available, I've rewrote the page to uses AutoDesk's Express viewer

MAY 11, 2002 - Well, it's been a long haul but the Version 1.0 Protector CAD prints are finally completed!  I want to thank everyone that's contributed, large or small, and I'd especially like to thank the two guys that really made this all possible:

Alan Sinclair - The founder or our feast, Alan took my raw beginnings and turned it into something fantastic!

KJ Karvonen - For supporting the effort early on and generously giving us a ton of shots of one of the original Protector models that he owns. 

This ends the active phase of the Protector Blueprint project, so what's next? These are Version 1.0 prints, which means there is plenty of places for us to tinker and improve over time.  Many people have asked about a 3D version, and while that's always a possibility, currently we don't have any definitive plans to start anything in the near future.  

As always, I hope that what we've done here helps people to take it a step further... Scratch Building a model, improving their own prints, Creating a 3D mesh, Etc... and we'd love to hear about what you're doing, and help if we can, so be sure to write us at: The QuestarianThanks Much Everybody!

Current issues to be resolved:

1. Is there anything big we missed?
I think we've got most of the details... if anyone notices any missing pieces contact The Questarian2. How big is the Protector?
This is a real conundrum....
If you examine the picture of the shuttle deck (Click to enlarge),  you'll see that it appears to be HUGE!   It appears  to be 2 or 3 times the size of the shuttle bay on the original Enterprise in Trek.  In this pic, we're looking at the doors and launch deck from several levels up and back.  The green line marks the edge of the deck the view is located on.  You can see several shuttles in their hangers located in the center and along the side walls.  Also, there appears to be crew members walking around on the launch deck. The question becomes is this scaled correctly to the ship or is it a classic sci-fi example of an interior that's larger then the exterior? 

PLEASE NOTE: The Protector blueprints are based on reference material and not the original FX shooting prop or CGI wire frame... The current prints are based the prop blueprints used in the convention scene, shots of a early model and a number of educated guesses.   Short of the release of a set of original prints, this is as accurate as we're about to get.
