Medical- Year 2

Space Warp

Just one principal design of Medical Centre (or rather "Center") appeared in Year 2. The computer panels at the head of beds are a new beige design.

Operations are performed on the red diagnostic chair in front of normal patient beds. The communications post is rarely seen (The Metamorph and The Beta Cloud) and shifts in position depending on camera angle. One wall, the normal camera position, is rarely seen (we have a glimpse of some panels in Mark of Archanon and The Beta Cloud). Dorzak shows a much longer version of the same room with a side observation room.

The Metamorph

Our first view of the new Medical, in The Metamorph. The new medical computers are beige. The curved computer unit hanging from the ceiling was also seen in Year 1.

The A B Chrysalis

The Medical Center has a row of three beds along one wall, with a red operating chair in front of the curved computer unit hanging from the ceiling.

The A B Chrysalis

Medical monitors and drug trays are cluttered around.

Seed Of Destruction

The Pileo floor lamps make an appearance.

The Exiles

In the first few episodes, the computer displays are the same three-screen design as in Year 1, although the other panels are new.

The Beta Cloud

In subsequent episodes, two smaller screens replace them.

Dorzak

The three screen design appears again occasionally, as here in the Dorzak observation room.

Detail of the hanging computer control and one of the Medical monitors. An Ergastolo folding screen is always behind the Medical monitors (hiding the cable and power source).

The Beta Cloud

Detail of the end bed, against the wall.

The Beta Cloud

In The Beta Cloud we see another wall, with more beds.

In the main Medical Center, the observation room beyond.

The main Medical Center is modified by adding a fourth bed (note the one on the end loses the computer unit).

Looking towards the door. The life support panel and grille are gone.

The scanning lamp is here attached to a column, instead of the opposite wall.

The Beta Cloud The Beta Cloud

The Medical Center has a single door, off the main corridor. There is a "Computer Room" to the side, and across the corridor is the Weapons Section.

Seed Of Destruction

Inside the door is either this Life Support Systems Indicator, or a temperature gauge (sometimes it changes mid-episode).

The Beta Cloud The Beta Cloud

After The Beta Cloud there is also a ventilation grille. It is captioned "Medical Temperature Control Unit", or in close-ups, "Temperature Centigrade".

Space Warp

The doorway, looking out. Under the life support/temperature gauge is a Pileo floor lamp with a red bulb. There is an Alarm button on the left.

Space Warp Space Warp

In Space Warp, the alarm button has a transparent cover which must be pulled out before the button can be pressed.

Another view to the doorway, showing some of the far wall.
