Any STAR TREK fans on the board?

Did you just design your very own teardrop or tiny trailer? Want to discuss it? Here's the place to post your design for discussion!

Now those fenders have some potential as storage pods....

Praying Mantis

Postby Rem » Fri Nov 10, 2006 8:03 pm

Hi All
I have started the praying mantis. It is very much like the Gallileo. It will have sliding doors. I have two designs. One with out riggers for storage with a 4 ft wide body and a 5ft wide version without the out riggers. Many special accesories will be incorporated to accomodate medical needs

Hinge door at the bottom

What about hinging it at the bottom, and using the inside of the door as steps? That would be kind of airplanish--aircraftish--jettish ... you know what I mean.

Surveytech's Shuttlecraft

:shock: HOLY COW! How did you keep it under 8 feet wide. Looks like you're right in that ballpark. Are you going to use cameras instead of side view mirrors? That would look AWESOME with a matching teardrop behind it! Especially if you could have a pneumatikc cylinder suck it in close and make it look real long! :thumbsup:
Boy, do I need to build one of these! This is going to be my "Rut Buster".

Lone Wolf's First Season Gallileo

Postby westover » Sat Dec 09, 2006 5:15 pm

Food for thought! :) In the tv series, the top portion of the door opened up and the bottom opened in, and back, to provide a step or steps. Or you could hinge the bottom of the door, to the top, so it folds in when you lift the door up. With a small air compressor, air tank, air cylinder and a valve, you could make it all work true to the series :thumbsup:

You have GOT to be kidding me! Somebody's digitally re-mastering some of the old Star Trek shows! I can't really see the point, though I must admit the planet killing paper bag (actually a wind sock dipped in cement) from "Doomsday Machine" now looks a lot more menacing.

You can see some of the remastered stuff on the Star Trek website (bottom left) including the "planet killer," but again, I can't see much point in it. How many trips are they gonna make to this well?!

Archer was the first starship captain.
Enterprise was the first starship.
Capt. Christopher Pike was the first captain of the NCC-1701, Constellation-class starship "Enterprise," a heavy cruiser with a crew of approximately 300.
Capt. James T. Kirk was the second captain in command of this ship, which was destroyed.
Capt. Kirk also commanded the NCC 1701-A.
By the time Capt. Jean-Luc Picard took command of the Galaxy-class Enterprise, it was a D model; that battleship was destroyed under his command, and replaced by a smaller, faster ship also named Enterprise.
The timeline from construction of the ship Archer commanded through the destruction of the Enterprise-D varies according to which version of the Trek universe you inhabit, but Braga and Berman posited the construction of Archer's ship sometime in the 2050s AD; the Constellation-class starship was built approximately 200 years into the future (and had oddly retrograde electronic and computer components), and the Enterprise-D's commissioning followed the NCC-1701 "No Bloody Letter"'s destruction by approximately 80 years.

Whoops ... now everybody knows what a Trek geek I am, and I'm the least indoctrinated in my house...

Didn't have time to look anything up :D

...and I liked your first post the first time I saw it.

But that overhead overhang out back still has me scratching my head about how to support it.
It sure looks like a great place to hang a privacy curtain/porch awning from, though.


Somebody oughta build that. Couldn't be too much harder than a weekender ...
