But I guess my favorite will always be the bridge of the original Enterprise
. I love the colors, the boxy computers and all the little buttons on the black consoles. I'm also fond of the moiré pattern on Spock's scanner and love Sulu's extendable tactical screen. I must also admit that I'm very much attached to the set for very sentimental reasons.
I'm with you. In my late teens, I got caught up with later implementations because I thought they were 'cooler'. Now that I'm older, I find I have a strong fondness for the TOS bridge, including the red and green mood lighting on the ceiling above the consoles
