Well there are rooms and hallways now, with that beige carpet.
I created some windup minifigs with programmable AI. So they walk around the ship doing their spaceman duties. When they are off duty they return to their windup stations for a good winding. Just like those Borg stations except with windup keys.

I hadnt thought of having a hinged wall. I suppose because I planned to have the ship airtight so it can travel in space. You can't see it from this angle but there are spacekraft engines on the other side. Its capable of traveling between here and Pluto in just 3 parsecs.

How did you manage to fix the friction to thrust coefficient without ripping the fabric of space, or did you just pot luck it?

Well Space is a nice girl and she doesn't mind when her fabric gets ripped when a minifig is creating too much friction from all that thrusting.

Thats what needle and thread is for anyway.

Well I guess you have a shitty navigational system, you must have forgot that a compass wont work in space. :roll:

Thanks

The full resolution images show my intent of going for a clean, utilitarian ship design. Something thats visually not cluttered has more of an impact and conveys a sense of orderliness and purpose of the race it belongs to.

Any race that is so dedicated to keeping their studs clean with specially made brushes, is a race to be feared, or possibly psyco-analized.
