Awesome Father Creates a Detailed Star Trek USS Enterprise Bridge Playset for His Son

Star Trek Enterprise Bridge Playset

Maker and father David Weiberg handed his collection of Star Trek: The Original Series action figures to his eight-year-old son and built an amazingly detailed USS Enterprise bridge playset to go along with them. David’s entire build process is available to view on Instructables.

This project started when I found my old Star Trek TOS playmates figures. I gave them to my eight year old son who had become a fan of the old show. He began building simple cardboard play pieces. Inspired by the clean wooden design of some of his other toys I set out to design and create a modular play set that he could use to assemble various rooms aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise. I wanted a set that could break down and store easily. I tried to use scrap materials where I could. The bridge was the biggest challenge so I started there.
