Protostar.NX :: New Project

Protostar.NX is now active at meWho.com/protostar

This blueish LCARS stands unique in its slight difference from the traditional Trek interface. It is based on the fictional UI seen on the starship U.S.S. Protostar in Star Trek: Prodigy.

I learned a very tricks while making this project -- mostly related to the animated charts. It's all fun and challenging trying to find browser-efficient methods of animating those chart lines. I will try applying them to my Titan.DS project. Oh, I've also changed a few elements from the original design to make this interactive site slightly more user-friendly for the 21st century😉

UI referenced directly from the show (now on Netflix), and from the demo videos by the awesome folks at Territory Studio! Also thanks, MikeJF. on twitter, for your detailed analysis of Protostar's MSD!

Currently there are three modules on Protostar.NX - Ship Plan View, Ship MSD, and Sector Scan. And I do have an idea for another one. I will start working on it when I get some down time and motivation🙂

Go Fast > Protostar.NX !!!

Let me know what you think about this new project on my social media channels. Cheers....

Titan.DS new module: NCC-1031 • USS Discovery

As the TV series "ST: Discovery" coming to a close, here I present you my latest module addition, NCC-1031, to the Titan.DS website. The toggle for this new module can be found on the right side of the main display, sitting below the NCC-1701-G module button.

By default, the Spore Drive gets activated every 47 seconds. You can disable this loop by toggling off the "INTRO.LOOP" button. The random color change that accompanies each loop can also be disabled by toggling off the "RND.COLOR" button.

Titan.DS new module: APOD Stardate

Titan.DS's latest update features the integration of my new project, APOD STARDATE. APOD can now be accessed & viewed directly within Titan.DS as a module. This module toggle is located near the lower right section of the main display, adjacent to the Spacedock module button.

I've tried to create a distinctive mini "intro" animation sequence for each of Titan.DS's modules, including this one. I took inspiration from the Holodeck LCARS panel animation in ST: Picard, Season 3's end credits for this particular module.

*Replicating the camera angle precisely is difficult...

The text for this "intro/loading" sequence showcases location & coordinate details from a selection of 20 observatories. Several of these locations are well-known to Star Trek fans, such as the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, which was prominently featured in the "Future's End" episode of Star Trek: Voyager. Others include: Paranal Observatory, Arecibo Observatory, VLA, SKA, Perth Observatory, Amargosa Obs, etc.

I've changed the UI color scheme of APOD STARDATE from cyan to gray when viewed on Titan.DS, and made some minor adjustments for a more integrated look. Since it's viewed as module, Titan.DS's grid overlay is applied to APOD STARDATE. It's a nice additional effect. Can be toggled of with an on/off button. Oh, the tiny buttons situated below the audio progress bar can be clicked. Each button is assigned to a specific "pretty" APOD entry.

By the way, APOD STARDATE's keyboard shortcuts are fully functional right inside Titan.DS. For a list of these shortcut & functionality of the standalone APOD STARDATE webapp, please refer to my previous log post or look up APOD STARDATE's User Manual (png image).

APOD STARDATE is my interpretation of a webapp featuring minimal Star Trek LCARS UI, displaying astronomical image/text content from the NASA APOD website (Astronomy Picture of the Day). It includes voice narration, audio visualizer, and sound effects. The UI is interactive and responsive for various screen resolutions. Given the stunning visuals of many APOD images, this webapp is optimally developed for a desktop experience.

APOD STARDATE offers several visual effects to enhance the LCARS display. Most of these features are deactivated by default. A set of keyboard shortcuts are included for faster interaction with the content & UI interface. Additionally, some URL parameters are available for customizing the initial startup configuration. See this User Manual ⬇️ below for further details.

  • [space bar] pause/play audio narration
  • [N] request next random APOD entry
  • [P] load up previously displayed APOD entry
  • [L] change size of the small LCARS window
  • [H] hide the small LCARS window
  • [W] swap content between small window & main
  • [F] fullscreen mode
  • [M] master mute switch
  • [K] nav-bracket display effect
  • [S] change APOD image resizing style
  • [V] toggle all visual effects at once
  • [J] [J] toggle JWST Mode
  • [0] [0] [0] ... [0] [2] [4]
    request predefined APOD entry

If you're in the mood for a "busier" LCARS look and feel, I've also integrated APOD STARDATE as a module into my other project, Titan.DS. I will write a log entry about it shortly.

* Images & text content used on APOD STARDATE are obtained via NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) API. The content is the property of NASA and is used with permission. Entries with videos or copyrighted images have been excluded from this webapp.

* The dot-matrix 3d animation in this webapp was inspired by Data's positronic brain animation from Star Trek: Picard Season 3's end-credits sequence. This web animation effect was created using the Three.js 3D library and is based on a buffergeometry drawrange example developed by Fernando Serrano.

I've been spending small chunks of my time here and there to developing this project, experimenting with visual effects and testing code since August 2023. I am excited to share it with you now! I hope you will find it both enjoyable and educational in your exploration of astronomy. And if you'd like to support the projects I create, 👉 please click here for more info 🖖

Star Trek: The Cruise 2024

Ahh... it's that time of the year again with all the Star Trek: The Cruise 2024 photos popping up on social medias. Very envious, still ... 🤪 Oh well, here's a slightly updated version of the MSD LCARS I created last year for the Mariner of the Seas. I hope the ship's config didn't change much.🖖

And Yes, there is duck somewhere in this MSD.
⚠️ DISCLAIMER: I'm definitely not sponsored by Star Trek: The Cruise. For folks who are currently on the ship, please don't visit that deck sector to hunt for the duck. Thanks~

Lab: Project E.D.E.

Project E.D.E. • animated website -- A recreation of a static LCARS display of the ENTERPRISE-D from ST:TNG episode “Emergence” S7x23. Originally designed beautifully by Mike Okuda. Rick Sternbach might also contributed it, as mentioned in one of Mike's tweets.

This specific design by Mike is a work of art that I find particularly appealing. I intentionally chose to keep its simplicity and made only a few modifications, adding minimal animations and basic interactivity. This project will remain as a standalone webpage with no plans for major updates. The aspect ratio of this display will resize to some degree depending on your browser size.

Oh by the way, E.D.E. stands for Enterprise-D Emergence😉 Cheers~

devLog: Project E.D.E. / Creating LCARS in Figma

Project EDE :: a work in progress.
Been wanting to recreate this Enterprise-D LCARS for a while. Original graphic by Mike Okuda (& possibly Rick Sternbach* too?), seen in the ST:TNG episode "Emergence" - S7x23. This design is like an artwork, so I am making it a standalone simple webpage with minimal animations & interactivity.

I twitted about* this LCARS image in Feb 2023. 💙Thanks to Portal Realm & Joe Ralat for sharing the reference images.

⬇️ Here is a quick demo of me using Figma app to create a simple LCARS (Okudagram) box. Adobe Illustrator & Inkscape are even more capable. Though for my use case, I find Figma's free starter plan to be quite... efficient.

Titan.DS December Holiday Musical Update

This Titan.DS holiday update idea came at the last minute. Initially, I was attempting to fix the existing sound effect on the ten 3D DNA pairs so that they would match a musical note scale. Previously, I had the audio pitch (PlaybackRate) change on a linear scale via Javascript. After some R&D, I adjusted it to a logarithmic scale. And that worked! Then, one thing led another, and I added a holiday musical section to the DNA module! I might have learned more about musical notation during this update than I'll ever need😂 Oh, one of the music clips is my very poor imitation of Data's Life Forms song😬

I've also copied over the snowflakes effect from Project RITOS. Though here I've set the effect to be inactive by default. This snowflake efx option is only available in December. It will be completely turned off after January 3rd.

By the way, turning on the Borg Scan mode would make this DNA screen even more festive! Happy Holidays~🖖

Titan.DS Additional Infographic + 1hr Spacedock Video

I didn't get a chance to create an infographic when the Spacedock module was released, so here I've made two back-to-back infographics for the latest two modules on the Titan.DS interactive website -- Enterprise-G & Spacedock modules.

Also recorded a one-hour 4K video of the Spacedock module -- great for playback on an older machine or on a TV via Chromecast, Fire Stick, or other similar devices.

Titan.DS Update: Enterprise-G

The new Enterprise-G module is ready just in time for Halloween🎃. As usual, you can activate this module using a button located on the right-side panel of the main display. Look for the NCC-1701-G button on the Titan.DS website. Please keep in mind that this is a fairly resource-intensive module, so it might affect browser performance on slower/older machines😬

Drawing inspiration from the rich source materials of ST: Picard, I've remixed & incorporated various UI elements from season 3 into this module. A big shout-out to Jeremy M for sharing some set photos he took; they've been a big help for referencing🧡 Additional reference photos publicly & generously tweeted by Dave Blass and Bill Krause were utilized. Bill Krause is the designer of the Constitution III Titan!

⚠️ Designed with a focus on 4k displays, this particular module may display smaller elements & text as slightly fuzzy or blurry on an HD (1080p) display😬

I will create a demo/tutorial video for this module in a few days & share it on my YouTube channel. At the mean time, feel free to click around in this module & explore! Oh, since it's a Halloween🎃 update, I've added a pumpkin color scheme that can be toggled right within this module. And there is duck somewhere on the deck. Plus three more non-trek objects. Happy hunting 🙂 & exploring~

🔶Additional short videos & high-resolution screenshots are available in my online albums:

By the way, the creation of this new module was decided through a vote 2.5 months ago by my Patreon supporters. The other two choices were "Enterprise NX-01" & "Enterprise-E MSD."

A small update to Project RITOS:

September 19, 2023
SPACEDOCK Module Added to Titan.DS

This Spacedock (Sol Station 398392/ aka Probert Station) is based on a short LCARS video clip tweeted by ST: Picard's FUI (Fictional UI) designer Andrew Jarvis. That clip could be briefly spotted in season 3. I made a few changes & added several interactive animations so that it could be integrated with the Titan.DS website smoothly.

A kind warning: I used a combination of SVG animation and CSS 3D transform to create the overall effect. It could be a bit heavy when running on a underpowered machine, resulting sluggish performance. And somehow Firefox crashes frequently when displaying this module, at least on my machine 🤷 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ **I will make a long recording of this module and share it on my YouTube channel soon, so that everyone could enjoy this Spacedock animation without needing a fast computer.

🔶Additional short videos & high-resolution screenshots are available in my online albums:

Anyhoo, besides being an interactive module, I've also repurposed those spinning mini LCARS to list out names of my project supporters on the Patreon & Ko-Fi platforms, as my special way of making shoutouts😉
🧡 YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT IS MOST APPRECIATED! The names are arranged randomly on each refresh. Remember to use the "Via Patreon" & "Via Ko-Fi" buttons to switch on/off the platform category.

What's next on Titan.DS? It will be an Enterprise-G sideview display -- voted recently by my Patreon members😃 Cheers~

Titan.DS with embedded Starfield 47 = Stellar Cartography!

Been working on this update gradually over the past few months - schedule was rather chaotic. Though I'm really happy that this update is finally complete.

In essence, I integrated my Starfield 47 project into Titan.DS. And a new module was born. I've named it the STELLAR CARTOGRAPHY module!

You'll find the button for this module, labeled STLR-CRTO, positioned just above the DNA Module button, towards the lower right corner of the main display. Once activated, Titan.DS will attempt to load the Starfield 47 website within an iframe (a website within a website). Due to the difference in UI design, the original interface of Starfield 47 wouldn't fit well with Titan.DS. To resolve this, I created a new UI layer within Titan.DS that would communicate with the SF47 iframe. You can still interact with the 3D Space in this module, just like in Starfield 47. The keyboard shortcuts with Starfield 47 retain their functionality here as well. (Remember to click on the 3D Space before utilizing the shortcuts to ensure the module gains focus first.)

Starfield 47 Website Updated with Big Stars🌟

It's been while since my last update on this project... There's this one feature that I wanted to add ever since I saw an example on Babylon.js Playground website. It's a 3D star generated by using Babylon.js's awesome particle system. I finally incorporated it in Starfield 47 with a few modifications & randomization.

So how to see the 3D big stars in STARFIELD 47? When the warp speed sits at zero, first turn on the Star Markers (STARS button) from the Control Panel (shortcut key T). Then click on any one of the star markers floating in the space to toggle the 3D star. Double-click on the 3D star or the text marker to change the camera's zoom level. Or hit the shortcut key Y to focus on a random big star. Oh, black holes are out there too😉

Other updates include:

Starfield 47 Desktop App - preview

Finally spent some time playing with Electron.js framework to turn Starfield 47 website into a desktop app. Once the desktop app is downloaded, it runs locally on your system without needing an internet connection. Multiple windows can be launched by using the Ctrl-or-Cmd + N keyboard shortcut. For Windows with multiple monitors, try Ctrl+Shift+F to activate the Super Fullscreen mode -- a single Starfield 47 screen would span & display across on all of your screens. Additional keyboard shortcuts can be found in the README file.

Preview version of the Starfield 47 Desktop App can be downloaded from this Google Drive shared folder. Mac & Windows versions are available. Please read the "README" text file, especially for Mac users because of Mac OS's built-in security measure could prompt the downloaded file being damaged.

Trek Countdown: Counting down to SNW episodes

Updated the Trek Countdown site with info on ST: Strange New Worlds's season 2 episodes. Also added an mini ship animation to the loading screen🙂

June 13, 2023
USS Enterprise (SNW) module added to Titan.DS

A new starship module has been added: the USS Enterprise, NCC-1701 -- the version from ST: Strange New Worlds (SNW). This wireframe graphic was recreated based on the images tweeted by Timothy Peel, SNW's motion graphic designer/supervisor.

Since it's a wireframe graphic, I thought it'd be fun to have a new 'revealing' animation sequence to go along with its line art style. I utilized SVG format's stroke-dasharray property to create the line drawing effect. This main revealing sequence would always start on the line drawing of the saucer section. It'd then proceed to either the nacelles, the pylons or the engineering hull section by chance. As usual, I tried to build in as much randomization as possible, so the overall effect would always be presented slightly different on each run. The bridge, the saucer section & the nacelles are all responsive to clicks.😉

Small improvements were made on other ships as well. Titan.DS now has a total of 3 starship modules (Enterprise, ENT-D & ENT-F). More will be added in the future. Cheers~

Titan.DS: 1-hour long YouTube video

I recorded an 1-hour long video of Titan.DS in 4K resolution running with full sound effects on, including the ambient engine noise. A glow effect was added in the post with a video editing software before I uploaded the video to YouTube.

Ideally this could be viewed on a big smart TV via a YouTube app or a Chromecast/Fire Stick/Roku. A less powerful computer or tablet could also easily play this video, as opposed to running the more CPU-demanding Titan.DS website (Titan Display System).

Let me know if there are other types of video you'd like to see🖖

Sound Effects/SFX added to Titan.DS

Been working on adding the sound effects (SFX) little by little to Titan.DS in the past few weeks. So glad it's finally complete. 😫Pardon me -- currently my brain is filled with constant beeping sounds. Hopefully that will go away soon!

On Titan.DS's main display, look for the AUDIO button in lower left to activate the sound. (next to the fullscreen button) On desktop, the sound can also be toggled by hitting the M key on your keyboard. The Engine Ambient Noise has also been added. However, it is set to off by default. Head to Titan.DS's ABOUT section to adjust the volume levels of the Engine Noise and the Sound Effect. Whenever the volume level is altered, the new level's value gets stored in your browser's cache. And it will persist when you visit the site again in the future. Have fun💙

Let me know if you like this SFX addition -- drop your comments/suggestions on my Twitter, Mastodon, FB or my Discord server~🖖

Titan.DS updated with two new modules

A major update on this project. Project was renamed from TitanEPS to Titan.DS because more non-EPS elements have been (and will be) added. The DS stands for "Display System"😀
In this update, two modules were added: DNA & Enterprise-D. The DNA graphics were inspired by ST:Picard S3. And Ent-D's vector graphic was created based on images found in the ST:TNG Tech Manual. Look for the buttons on the side panel to activate these two new modules. Also, two display modes were added: a GrayScale mode & a Light mode (aka, the Flashlight mode 😂). Do be careful with the Light mode. Don't blind yourself😉 Below is the new URL for the Titan.DS project. Enjoy~🖖

Introducing STARFIELD 47

A new webapp project I started making this year. It's like a bridge's viewscreen on Star Trek. It's also like a stellar cartography. It features: 3D + Warp Speed + LCARS. It's a website, and no additional installation is needed. For best experience, please view STARFIELD 47 on a not-too-old desktop machine with Chrome or other modern browsers. Hope you'll enjoy it :-) Tip: put it on fullscreen mode & wait for the AutoNav to kick in. STARFIELD 47

This updated System 47 screensaver includes all the features from the Viewer program, plus the multi-monitor support. Currently for Windows OS only. Due to tech changes in the past 20+ years, this screensaver's "wrapper" binary is a bit different from the old version. See System 47 for more info.
