BLUEPRINTS: “Moonbase Alpha Reference Guide (Special Preview Edition)” by Keith Young (2012)

In my capacity as “Keeper of the Sacred Blueprints,” I have long been aware of - and a fan of - Keith Young. For those not in the know, he basically got a copy of the old “Moonbase Alpha Technical Manual” put out by Starlog in the 1970s, and quickly decided it was a very limited, slapdash, and generally inaccurate product all ‘round. It was, however, intended to be updated, and came in a three-ring binder so that Starlog could send out periodic new pages. These never came, of course. The project was a bust, and quickly abandoned.

BLUEPRINTS: “Battlestar Galactica” (1978)

This set is nearly unique in the entire gooney-assed history of Science Fiction blueprints in that they’re *real* blueprints, and not fake deck plans of a nonexistent ship. These are actual set designs from the production of the 1978 series, published in December of that same year.

BLUEPRINTS: Star Trek: “Excelsior”

As we talked about last time, there’s a lot of fanfic blueprints out there, some of them painstakingly accurate, some painfully inaccurate, some of ships that never existed in any franchise, and those that take a lot of liberties with the subject matter. The interesting thing about the ‘liberty-taking’ ones is that sometimes they represent an improvement over the source material.
