First off, Welcome to Foundation3d. What kind of textures you looking for... B5 Style generic panels or Star Trek style Aztec textures?

Welcome indeed!

The texture reference thread would be a good place to start.

And welcome again. Most times you'll find that combining images and doing some hand painting is the best way to get what you're looking for.
