Re: Things Starfleet needs to fix already on its ships.

Regarding the placement of the bridge, I read somewhere that when designing the Enterprise-D, Andrew Probert wanted to put the bridge at the center of the saucer to protect it there. Roddenberry insisted it be put back at the top, mainly as a gesture to other vessels: we´re not here to fight, we´re no warship, we´re peaceful explorers and have therefore no reason to hide our command center.
