    Destiny - Ship Layout

    , 04-07-2012 at 10:29 PM (5064 Views)
    Since I am still unable to recall my dreams, which I am now convinced is related to constant tiredness / headaches, I figured I'd do something else.
    I remember there being a thread on DV about dream cartography and thought it would be a cool idea to try and remember the layout of Destiny and draw the schematics.

    Destiny is a recurring story-arc in my non-lucid dreams: Click Me

    I can recall most details surprisingly well, and it turned out quite alright.
    I don't think I'd be able to do this for something like Haven though.

    Anyways, here's the schematics:
    - Fully pressurized / breathable sections are green
    - Engineering components and unpressurized sections or sections without air recycling are red
    - Fluid containers are blue
    - FTL / Hyperdrive system is orange
    - Deck-to-deck connections are pink
    - Outer hull sections are grey

    Habitation Deck: Link
    Not shown are desks installed during ftl.
    This is where the crew was most of the time.

    Engineering Deck: Link
    This is where I spent most of the time, either idling in the cockpit or doing maintenance on various components in the engineering section.

    Payload Deck: Link
    The lowering platform was never installed due to time pressure, and it wasn't clear what it should look like.
    Ideally the entire payload bay ground should be able to be lowered.
    The idea was to be able to lower big objects onto the ground after landing on other planets / moons, or deliver payloads into space.

    Size compared to the NASA Space Shuttle: Link

    - Shuttle: 23.79m
    - Destiny: 79.5m

    - Shuttle: 37.24m
    - Destiny: 64.5m

    Gross Liftoff Weight:
    - Shuttle: ~109t
    - Destiny: ~470t (no payload)

    I kinda feel like making a 3d model of destiny now, but I haven't modeled in quite some time and I'm not sure I'd be able to.

      This is awesome! It is incredible how huge it is compared to the shuttle, and I love being able to see it more vividly.

      Basically they are what makes the big machine go zoom...

      Yep, they basically use electric acceleration instead of chemical combustion, eliminating the need of carrying an oxidizer such as LOX.

      I hope you get to fly in it and go on adventures.
      Cowboy Bebop anyone?

      Ha, now I feel like watching Cowboy Bebop again, it's been forever since I've last watched it.

      I started watching it a few days ago.
      One of the cartoons we missed in England.
      I really hope you fly that ship though.
