I always imagined Earth has a Blade Runner-esque enviroment; dark, smoky, and always raining. With the snippets of info we get from the Soljets about "back home", it doesn't seem all that great. I remember on the old board Karin describing and, I believe, she even provided a piece of concept art that showed what the station looked like. I imagined in my head all different races sort of bustling along in a limited space, crammed in like sardines. With Aaina-na, very bright; whites, yellows, and crystal blue, for some reason. An endless amount of trees, blue skies, and just a look of cleaniness, meaning no pollution. And the scenes aboard Mac and the Khan, I imagined it like Battlestar Galactica. The characters look years ahead of they're respective ages, dreary enviroments with an illusion of some sort of order.

I've always imagined walking the corridors of the crew deck on the Macedon as being somewhat like walking the halls of the dormitory that I live in now. There is part of my dorm that has four buildings all connected together, so you can wall from House 1 to House 4 without ever going outside.

You end up with really long, oddly twisting hallways. There are no windows, just door after door after door, usually functional florescant lights, and an unfortunate paint scheme (although I imagine on the Mac it's all grey, rather than pastels varying by what level you're on and what building you're in). I imagine it would have to lose the carpet, but I think the super-slow central elevators with the odd stairwell (which are invariably metal, acoustically unfortunate and always seeming to be cold and smelling of paint) tucked into the corners fits well enough...

Returning after classes:

As for the Macedon herself, I believe that the Sulaco from Aliens has been mentioned. You can find the image here:

I tend to prefer the Ticonderoga design from Starship Troopers, though. You can find that image here:

The Sulaco is a great reference, although I see it more like the Battlestar Galatica. The Mac is more of a workhorse, the ship that has some real history behind it.

I envisioned Macedon as maybe a cross between BSG, the dirty darkness of Aliens, and maybe a smidge of that ST. It's very large though, bigger than those ships seem to show me, and the silhouette would be bristling with turrets and laser cannons.
