Alexander Richardson is making USS Ares blue prints! I can’t reveal too much yet, but he is working through the decks now.
And while we are at it, here was a diagram from 3 years ago we did about the USS Ares bridge.
Tomorrow is a big day as we have a volunteer crew coming to help with a ton of work.

It is hard to tell from the names provided, but how many of the bridge personnel are “female” (of whichever species)? Hoping that an equal representation of male/female and human/alien are on the bridge. Of course, the two 15 minute segments may not have this balance, though that too would be a nice touch.
Garth – Male
Tanaka – Male
Wagner – Female
Corax – Female
Caine – TBD
Leonov – Male
Cross – TBD
P.S. to last…
Will these blueprints be available?
I think Alex plans on it!
She is a fine looking ship if I do say so myself!
I noticed secondary ops has no desk panel keys was that intended?
One last thing do you have an idea of what the dedication placard will say and look like?
The bridge is not finished yet.
The blueprints of deck 1 show a doorway from the bridge out into a circular corridor, with the door the Captain’s Ready Room directly opposite, and other rooms like the Captain’s Mess and the CIC further round the ring. The turbolift shows 2 exits, one to the bridge, and one to the corridor. The graphical view of the bridge though, with the Captain’s chair and other officer positions, does not show the doorway leading out of the bridge….
Philip I will have Alexander reply here! He designed it!
The blue print represents the physical set, as far as the bridge goes. The door that you mention physically exists on set.
I’m not sure when it happened, but somewhere along the way, it was decided to but a door there in the set, but the graphic was not updated.
You might also note that the helm console has changed design between when that spiffy 3D graphic was made and the set built.
As the set is what we will see, that is what I based the blueprints on. Dean Newbury was kind enough to send me accurate drawings to ensure the blueprint I made was a true reflection of the set.
I hope that answers your query 🙂
