Re: Bridge Layout guess

I don't know, to be honest these bridges all look pretty radically different to me. Hell, I would argue the new bridge has more in common design-wise with the TOS bridge than almost ANY of these others. It basically just looks like a high-tech update.

It certainly fits in better with the group than the TNG bridge. That's the one that actually looks out of place.

PS: I love the new bridge. The cheesy POS from the sixties is unreasonable and anachronistic.

Then I guess you don't really love TOS and because of this your vote doesn't count.

wait... looking at that picture of the Sovereign class bridge, I see what appears to be two hostess stations...

Typical.

You expect the poor girl to work BOTH sides of the bridge by herself?

Sheesh!

I really hate this bridge, it looks like a parody of a sci-fi movie, rather than a serious attempt at what a starship bridge would look like.
I just watched Undiscovered Country again last night. This bridge is remarkably like that bridge. TUC's bridge was all white, except for the computer panels were black. TUC's bridge was very large, with many more people on it than on this historical bridge. TUC's bridge had lights shining down into the actors faces.

Note that to my eyes on my plasma, the bridge looked whiter than on these screen-shots.

The Kelvin bridge is a redress of this set, isn't that so?

Maybe I'm colorblind, but I don't see any white on the Undiscovered Country bridge.

All the stuff that looks gray on the screen caps, looks white when viewed on a Panasonic plasma TV with an Onkyo DVD player.

Nope. They built a completely different set for the Kelvin.

You're right, I was wrong - the Kelvin and Kobayashi Maru test bridges are related, not this one.

Then either your plasma TV or your DVD player are in need of some serious adjustment since those screencaps are precisely how the bridge is supposed to look.

Seconded, the 'caps are fine. Take a look at old mag stills of TUC for confirmation.

This sketch is based off of the bridge shot with the captain's chair and the group shot in front of the viewer:

Before anyone says it, yes this is about 75% assumption. I assume the bridge is perfectly symmetrical, for example. I assume there's nothing special just off camera. The proportions, size, and positions are all very loose guesstimations. I assume the nav/helm consol is just a bigger version of that podium since it's not in any shot.

EDIT: This is also slightly oval: 20ft radius on the fwd axis, 22ft radius on the prt/stbd axis.

So...what'd you think?

Two turbolifts, then?

Yes. This is definitely a visual canon reboot even if the storyline and timeline are meant to tie into the rest of the established TREK universe since "The Cage." I no longer have any doubts.

Of course they need adjustment and of course the screencaps are precisely how you think they are supposed to look.

Don't have them. (Guess I've gotta turn in my card)
