Homemade Starship Enterprise Bridge, 1977






Chew on this, Minecraft. It looks like they’ve repurposed a room in the house, possibly the basement.

The photos are from Nick DeWolf’s Flickr. DeWolf (1928 – 2006) co-founded Teradyne, an automatic test equipment manufacturer, in 1960. He was also an engineer, an inventor, and a hell of a photographer.

    This is why nerds got picked on all those years. Even I’m embarrassed by this.

      We used to make forts in the living room. Same concept here. They just have more talent.

        Aw man, living room “spaceships” were all the rage for my brothers and I in the late ’70s. All it took were some large cardboard appliance boxes which we’d join together and cut holes in for windows while we ventured through outer space. Stick our kitty cats in there for companions, even our fav toys and pillows and blankets to take naps in for long trips.

          Cardboard boxes were too advanced for us. We just hung some sheets on chairs, tried to divide up some rooms, and get a little tv in there if possible… And snacks, of course. The snacks were not organic.

            Oh yeah, totally forgot about sustenance for space travel. For us it was those twin-paks of Laura Scudder’s BBQ chips, lol.

            There was one time when I had two cats that didn’t get along in the cabin with me…man, they started fighting in those close quarters and I got scratched up myself, heheh…
