Infinite diversity
in infinite combinations
This is a blog about Star Trek. In case you can't tell.
(My personal blog is here in case anyone wants to know.)

Early concept designs for DS9 through to its final look that appears in the show.

As Berman and Piller continued to refine the concept of Deep Space Nine, we [Sternbach, Zimmerman and Michael Okuda] continued to evolve some of the exterior station drawings. We started with a very large number of sketches and very quick CGI shapes that we could build in our computers.

We could create a lot of shapes, make multiple copies of shapes and kind of put little pieces together and rotate them around and see how they would work. Also we could see if they would provide enough of a strange alien look that would be approved as Deep Space Nine.
