Re: Was the Star Trek 4 Ent-A bridge a redress of the Excelsior bridge

^It's worth remembering that, as sleek and futuristic as the Okudagram control surfaces look, their main virtue was that they were really, really easy and inexpensive to make -- you just print up some transparencies and backlight them. So maybe it was a budgetary decision to use them in TFF rather than a purely aesthetic one.
