Starship Bridge's
 
Which starship bridge is larger,the bridge of the refit Enterprise or the bridge of the K't'inga?
Are the blueprints of the K't'inga wrong as to where the bridge is located?

The ST:TMP bridge of a K't'inga is a maze, so no telling how big it really is. I see nothing wrong with placing it where the ST:TMP zoom-in suggests, in that tower structure atop the forward section - but this placement and scale might not be doing it full justice:

Possibly everything is set one deck lower, and the ship is a bit bigger than implied here. However, I'm personally okay with this scale. Note the possibility, nay, the implied existence of further spaces to port and starboard of the main viewer...

Your links don't work.

Copy and paste. Bernd's website has always done that.

It's not the link. It's to do that the owner of that website don't like anyone downloading anything from his website. You will have to go to another website.

I was looking at some diagrams of TMP Enterprise & the IKC Amar at this web site.
http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/gallery.htm
Look at both Alien & Federation pages in the locations section.
The bridge of the Amar might be larger than the bridge of TMP Enterprise but!?

I found two windows or ports on the back or stern side of the Amar's bridge tower, go here and look at the fifth picture.

You'll have to resize the picture to see the windows/ports.

I always found the configuration of the Amar's bridge design curious, to have the Captain in front of everyone else. As a Klingon commander, I wouldn't want to have my back to all my underlings, lest I be shot in the back or sneaked up from behind and have my throat cut. :)

Re: Starship Bridge's
 
That's why there's an unseen rear view mirror on the bridge, right above the main viewer. :P

More importantly, I wouldn't like that configuration since you'd only ever be looking over your shoulder to issue orders, as we saw Captain Lenard do. Kinda negates any advantage you'd have of an unobstructed view of the front window. :P

Maybe it's a "lead from the front" instinct that overrides paranoia and ergonomics.

Shooting someone in the back is dishonorable. Admittedly, that's rarely actually stopped a Klingon from doing something, but I imagine that for you not to get executed for murdering your captain you'd have to do it in a straight-up fight.

^ Yep. There are strict rules in Klingon society as to who can make challenges, and how they can do it. Has to be face to face combat, usually with knives or bat'leths or even fists.

Klingon fist fight to the death... I'd watch that.

No such thing. For some reason, they have freakin' CLAWS on their armor! :D

Here I thought this was going to be a thread about why the most important part of the ship is exposed like a hood ornament.

^^^ Aw, hell, that was just simply chalked up to one of Roddenberry's idiotic "laws" of starship design. Been debated to death for years.
