As promised here are the images from the beautiful 602 club from “First Flight” This set was Mike Okuda’s baby. He was so excited about doing this set that he actually had to wear adult diapers just in case the glee would get to be to much to handle,  I can get away with saying something like this because he is to far away to hit me or crush my spine with one of his unearthly upper body crushing bear hugs!!!!!!!!! HAAA!  As you all Know Mike is a huge fan of everything Nasa as well as Trek and in this set he got to satisfy both his passions with one artistic stroke!!! Jimmy Meese was to very excited about this one and he found some awesome fixtures and bar garb to dress everything perfectly. Alan kobiyashi and Anthony Fredrickson were doing all the graphics and menu’s, Jim Van Over was having a great time creating all the Animations, and Denise had here hand in a little bit of everything. Doug and I were busy with the ship, and it was always fun to get to do these things together from  our own preferred mediums. After all was said and done I believe this was an art Department favorite episodes!!! Enjoy the pictures.

    Aaah John! Thanks! Those shots made my day! Finally a close look at all the patches, which means we can complete what we started here:


    and identify the last missing mystery ones. And then, articles about all those missions and vehicles can be created at MA 🙂

    What is depicted on the second blueprint, is that the Phoenix cockpit? I can make out the name “Hunter” on the mission logo too. If you ever find close ups of those logos/patches, that would be uber-great, because they have never be seen before.

    I love those Star Trek universe patches, whoever had the idea to put them there is a genius.

    These are great. I love the fact that the concept Art for the Phenix is one the wall.
    Did you have to “touch” them up for this episode?

    My favourite is the SS Enterprise, a homage to the rec room scene in Star Trek the motion picture. Would be nice with a close up of the paintings of starships…

    Fun close-ups! I’ve been looking into some of the patches, which are really growing on me. I’m definitely going to start collecting historical ones, as well as “future” ones. 🙂 These pics just made me sure; so much to look at!

    I really like the way the shape of the bar seems to mimic the 602 club logo. This is definitely a place I would hang, if I were allowed in! So many cool elbows to rub…just like this and Doug’s blogs!!

    What an awesome set. Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name, and they’re always glad you came…and also they’re astronauts.

    So beyond cool! OK, I have to ask, as I don’t recall, what is the significance of 602?

    And I’m sure, as all sets get striked, this one did too. But what became of all the cool props/set-dressings, the plex-encased patch plaques, etc., and esp. the 602 neon? It was Mike baby, so does Mike now have a remnant of the 602 Club set up in his basement? 😀

    Thanks for the shots John! 😀

    Oh man, I’ve been looking forward to these pics ever since you said you were going to post them and they’re better than I imagined. Mike Okuda really outdid himself (and I already thought he was awesome) with this one. I love the retro look he gave the room with the NASA patches and 21st and 22nd century touches. It’s almost like a WWII pilot, Apollo astronaut and a Starfleet officer could all walk in that door one after the other and the music wouldn’t even stop once. 😉

    This is by far one of my favorite episodes of Enterprise. I love the story and the art department went all-out with the visuals. Great job all around. Do you know if the NASA patches are real ones from Mike’s collection or did he have duplicates made? I know I’d have had duplicates made, to make sure none went “missing.”

      I believe these were all his originals,,, Mike actually designs the real thing for Nasa Now!!! What a great honor and I am sure he is excited as can be!

        That’s got to be a thrill. I bet he designs some great patches. He’s been one of my favorite graphic artists for a long time. 🙂

    I had to come back here and hang out on my break! 🙂 I can just hear the fun and interesting conversations the guys hanging out here would be having.

    Actually I just had to take more time to check out the patches and details…guess I’m slow in my old age! Everything is beautifully done; I really like that door!!

    Thanks for the great shots John. You can tell this was a labor of love with all the details that were put into it.

    This set has some serious cool factor to it! Knowing the backstory to these things always makes the scenes that they are in that much more fun when you see them on screen. This really was a fantastic episode and was a giant piece of eye candy with the sets!

    Love those “future” patches. Very cool.

  13. April 15, 2009 at 11:14 am

    Wonderful! Thanks a lot for posting these photos, especially the close views of the patches.

    John thanks for these AWESOME close-ups! This was indeed a great set from a really cool episode. Any idea where the frames came from? I would love to get them for my own patch collection.
