Re: The Cage bridge.

Im really quite fond of the somewhat subdued color scheme of that bridge. IIRC the main reason for changing it was, that on b&w TVs (which were still widely in use in the 60s) the red "highlights" of the regular bridge provided a better contrast then the all-gray bridge in "The Cage". For the same reason they probably also changed the colors of the uniforms.

I also liked the "swan-neck" monitors attached to the chairs and consoles, although they might be a bit impractical in-universe.
