Yeah, that bridge... not so hot.

It looks like a middle ground between TOS and TMP, what with the one turbolift and black consoles with colored lights and wrap-around rather than individual stations.

And that's odd, since the Excelsior was supposed to be a step beyond TMP.
That bridge set the stage for the large, glossy consoles seen on the bridge of the Enterprise-A and D. For the Excelsior to be seen as the next step above the TMP/TWOK bridge design, a big departure was required, and the bright, clinical, sharp-edged Excelsior bridge fit that purpose well.
