The work of Laz Rojas has been around for a long time and this 3D walkaround of Starbase 11 and its environs is frankly crude by modern standards. And yet it is still obvious just how well this guy "gets" Matt Jefferies. I am going to pin this as a reference for would be aspirants to the Matt Jefferies style of Star Trek design. Rojas mixes Jefferies with Franz Joseph and a few others, but the important thing is, this looks like concept art for TOS. It is thus a rare thing given the extent to which those envisioning Star Trek since TMP have run away from Jefferies (and FJ).

Wow it's been a long time since I've looked at this.

I recall that it was pretty good. IIRC I felt it leaned a tad too much on recycling. But it was definitely ambitious in its scope and scale.

I've seen those EF mods in action on Youtube. I really had the impression to be walking inside the luxury liner module of a Ptolemy class starship. This is a quite interesting TOS feel to experiment even though the texturing is a bit old.
