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

I mean, even the Ent-D bridge workstations were all fitted with CRTs for Generations, because they realised how static the originals would look on a movie screen if there wasn't moving graphics going across them in the background.

I preferred the approach the TNG series took in later seasons: adding dynamic content in post production. This kept the smooth black finish. When LCDs were added, you could clearly see it was an LCD, and the backlit blacks didn't match the deep black of the rest of the console. Unfortunately, the use of LCDs seem to persist even in STID, though disguised behind lens flares.
