Okay, back to topic.
So, upon first impressions and rough estimates, it looks like the pilot dome is
big enough to accomodate a forward facing bridge. For further justification, I can certainly drag out the variations I cooked up way back when with the turbolif in various locations, and multiple turbolifts, or an idea I spotted over on that blueprint site of Jag's that had a little ready room off to the side in place of the library computer station.
So, we go back to waiting for more detailed findings from Mr. Shaw.
