Re: Donny's TOS Enterprise Interiors

^^^ I really liked the TUC bridge as well. However, the new turbolift locations - located farther apart than on the TFF version of the bridge - would have technically placed them outside the housing of the original bridge module, which had not changed on the filming miniature. If they had kept them in their original locations, it probably would not have been as spacially awkward. From a production standpoint, I get it - they wanted to reuse the bridge for the Excelsior scenes with the extra alcove behind the Captain's chair necessitating the spreading-apart of the lift doors. Would have fit in fine on the Excelsior, but not on the Enterprise. The refit bridge with the TWOK - TVH changes was always my favorite, though. I loved the chairs!
I may appear unoccupied to you, but at the molecular level, I'm really quite busy.
