In 1995, Mike Moore and Steve Horch set out on a project to update the Federation standard phaser and tricorder then in use on DS9 and Voyager. This was the prototype unit representing the first try at making a smaller and more sleek tricorder to get away from the more box-like shape, as well as upgrading the electronics with more lights and a better battery unit. Where the older Mark 6 and 7 tricorders lasted about 15 minutes before a battery change, the Mark IX/X model with far more lights will go for over three hours straight before it starts to lose power. In typical studio use, batteries were changed once a year
Ron Nomura, the painter of just about all the Federation comm badges and phasers used from Star Trek The Next Generation forward; seen here with the first batch of the "boomerang" phasers made
Steve Horch with the fully chrome-plated and 100% HUGE Hirogen rifle, as seen in Star Trek The Magazine [Oct.1999 issue]
Robert Mannion, drilling the 19th Century ring toss game; from the episode "Fair Haven"
Not everything made at HMS is 24th Century -- this is the completed backboard of the well-weathered ring toss game, made from a single piece of mahogany and then severly beaten and charred to make it look like it has been around for a couple of hundred years hanging in an Irish pub
The Borg transwarp core
And the apparatus in Voyager's engine room which the above transwarp core fits into
A Borg's arm, painted by Darcienne Sparber
From the episode "Think Tank," this is the "sawed off shotgun" of the race of bounty hunters going after the Voyager. Made using a gun from the pilot "Osiris Chronicles," these were never drawn, you only see the butt ends in the holsters
Neelix's tree, seen in his quarters
From "Bride of Chaotica," these are the multi-purpose devices used by the 1930s-dressed photonic aliens who came aboard Voyager via the "Captain Proton" simulation
The 29th Century time bomb planted aboard Voyager to blow it up several months into its maiden voyage, from "Relativity"
The gun Voyager was negotiating to buy from the arms dealer in "Retrospect," which was also the basis for the much larger Artificial Intelligence Bomb from the late 5th season episode "Warhead"
The Krenim lock of hair which was Annorax' only link [it was from his dead wife] to their past, from "Year of Hell"
The infamous alien paddle game, from the episode where Seven of Nine meets up with the surviving members of her old Borg unimatrix. Most props made at HMS are a team effort -- while one person may do the majority of work on a prop, generally all will have a hand in completing it.
As an example, the paddle game was made by Mike Moore, Steve Horch, Robert Mannion, Al Zequeira, and Darcienne Sparber
The always dangerous Steve Horch wielding a metal Klingon bat'leth. Most bat'leths and other bladed weapons are made of rubber for the actors' safety when doing stunts with them, metal ones are usually only used for display on a set or when an actor is only holding it
