Okay, here's a really rough plan view of what I had in mind. This is NOT to scale and may require significant adjustments to make it fit inside the hull outline. I did both the concept illustration and this plan purely by eye, so I guess we'll see if this actually works or not.
Also note there's quite a bit of stuff shown on the plan that isn't in the illustration yet, like the step down to the main engine control stations on either side, the additional consoles, etc. A lot of this is just stream of creative consciousness.
