Re: The changes in the Enterprise-D bridge in Generations...
Pretty sure they wanted to put the stations on the sides of the bridge from Day 1 but it was Gene who said no.
It was the budget that said no. But I always thought the 'fewer stations/less cluttered' look made the Enterprise
-D bridge the most advanced looking of them all.
