Is it really necessary for a captain to see every station on the bridge? Kirk's bridge allowed him to do that, but that may have been more of a luxury than an absolute necessity. I think on some real navy ships, the captain's chair is at the front of the bridge with various stations behind it.
It's not really necessary for a captain to see every station on the bridge, but it's more efficient, more pragmatic.
Not really. It truly is more of luxury than a necessity. The more important thing is for a bridge station to be within earshot of a captain.
I never said the changes were necessary, just said the changes to the bridge made sense because it was more pragmatic.
It's not even pragmatic. It's just something some fans are used to seeing from TOS.
