Re: What bridge design do you like?

I like the Voyager bridge, followed by the NX-01 bridge.

The view screen is under used. It usually is rather large. The screen can display ship status, damage, shield strength, casualties, hull breaches, warp power, weapons (Number of torpedoes left phaser power), ship orientation to the enemy vessel and other things important to the captain, XO, and others. Having that information up front where the captain is facing rather than on a screen on his chair would eliminate most needs for the captain to look away from the screen.

Of course that would make for a dull episode if we don't know how much, if any, trouble the ship is in.
