That looks like it's coming along nicely. Although, like others I don't remember the command centre being so cavernous!

Did a bit of Star Wars creep in there for the scale!

LOL! Thanks, Kevin.
Well, as for Star Wars influencing the size of the bridge, not really. That bridge size was rather accidental....and it was one of those "happy accidents" that turned out really well.

When I built the bridge in Blender, I used an imported avatar from iCloen to try and get the scaling right. But, the bridge did end up larger than planned, because I was trying to account for making sure the characters had room to move around without bumping into each other too much. Thus, the scale we have now.

There was a hint of influence of The Empire Strikes Back in the lights on the steps (something I am going to change....dimming the step lighting, and making them blue instead of yellow/orange.)
