TOS Displays Project



This is the left side display on the transporter console. It is a 6 by 5 display with 5 groups of flashing lights. When assembled, the light box was not mounted at the same angle under the black mask, colored gels and top glass. As a result, because of the angle in which the console was filmed, there is a gap, and light bleeds through the mask. The 2 narrow blue bars are simulating light-bleed through adjacent cut-outs that were never themselves illuminated.

Coolant Temperature Display


 This display was only seen close-up one time in the episode “The Corbomite Maneuver”, and wasn’t a permanent part of any Bridge station. The lights at the bottom didn’t flash, but it did have a sliding gel to indicate rising temps.
