Almost there.......

OK, the circuit board for the NCC-1701 TMP Enterprise is done. But after gotten hold of Uncle Ho's JJ Abrams's 2009 Star Trek, I decided to add that flashing sequence too. But I need to watch it again to count how many strobe lights there are on the ship. I just hope the count is 14 or less. If not, I would have to redesign the board again.

But in the meantime, I would have to re-write the software for the chip to accommodate these new changes. And if everything goes well, I might be able to sell some and use the cash to develop further circuits.

Still, I am hesitant to sell this locally as I know, a lot of people would just want everything, asks a lot of questions, says I should do this or do that, anything but pay the asking price. So, the hassle of entertaining such crap is just not worth it.

This circuit will fit into either a TMP Enterprise
or a 2009 Enterprise. So, you get two options.
But in the meantime, I have to save up for the
manufacturing and component costs. Right now,
if my salary is not late like last month, I might
be able to make the production this month, get
the board populated next month and then sell
them. And it might take a lot of time since I am
going to do all these soldering by myself.

Oh-oh. The strobes and navigation lights are all opposite compared to the TMP version. Oh well, back to the drawing board. Must get the PCB design ready first before I can start with the software.
