The 40ft. x 20ft. set featured a bridge with three operational stations (with computer monitors) and a central command podium, built in cooperation with the School of Theater; and the captain's living quarters.  Additional space in the workshop was used for set construction, storage of props and to stage equipment during the shoot.  A classroom in the facility was converted to a space for wardrobe and a Green Room for the cast & crew.
