Re: That added touch of detail...
I always loved the background noises of the TOS bridge.
When I heard them in the end of Star Trek IV, in that split second I brightened up and thought, "I'm home" then Kirk said, "My friends, we've come home" and made it perfect.
Oddly enough, when we see the bridges of the Exeter
, the background noises are more reminiscent of the Enterprise
in the second pilot.
"You are speaking to a senior officer, Kirk!"
