I love Voyager's bridge. It's the perfect mix of refit-Enterprise functionality with Enterprise-D style. It's not as utilitarian as Defiant. And the lighting is the best of any of them.
Only ever saw 4 episodes of Voyager, but the ship's bridge looked kind of cool. Seemed less under-populated than the Enterprise bridge on TNG often felt, and made more sense that the main workstations like Tactical were larger than their TNG counterparts.

2. Enterprise E
3. Voyager

Good Question and it made me think. I had to think if I were stationed on the ship, which one I would want to actually be on. Now I was shocked to find that for the most part, I kept going back to mostly the same 4 ships. I was further shocked to find that, while I found Voyager to be a little boring externally, I actually liked a lot of its sets.

Re: Favourite bridge and interiors

I do have some favourite Starfleet designs as well, so I might as well rank them too.

Bridge - Enterprise-D (Generations-style)
Shame it didn't always look like that.

Cockpit - Runabout
Just love that little ship.

Conference Room - Enterprise-E
I like their little ships.

Engineering - Voyager
Actually looks like a proper engineering space, lots of consoles and space stuff everywhere.

Lounge/Mess Hall - Defiant
Practical and neat, without the need for a really annoying cook.

Quarters - Voyager
Actually pretty decent sized rooms given the size of the ship.

Ready Room - Enterprise-D
A cosy little office for the Captain, not like the massive room Janeway had.

Science Lab - Stellar Cartography (Enterprise-D)
Such a cool room and idea, shame we only saw it once.

Sickbay - Enterprise (TWOK-style)
A proper large medical ward that can handle more than just a handful of patients at a time.

Transporter Room - Enterprise-A (TUC-style)
A good sized room for meeting the Klingon Chancellor, plus I like how the operator sits in their own little booth.

I like the 1701 (TOS version) and 1701-D interiors for not looking like anything else on TV. People tend to criticize them, particularly the 1701-D, for "not looking realistic", or for their brighter color schemes, or whatever.
If they want realistic, they can watch documentaries.

Interesting. Personally, I like the one from 1701-D best, I think, but I like the Reboot one quite a bit, too.

Re: Favourite bridge and interiors

Favorite bridge:
1. Enterprise E (with some post-Nemesis alterations)
2. Enterprise TOS

Favorite corridors:
Enterprise-E for curved corridors.
Voyager-style for straight corridors.

Favorite engine room:
1. Enterprise-E (upgrade the neon with LED arrays)
2. Voyager

Favorite sickbay:
1. Enterprise-E/Voyager (same set) Expand it to the TOS floorplan
2. TOS Enterprise

Favorite ready room:
1. Voyager (due to size, needs a makeover)
2. Enterprise E

Favorite conference room:
1. The Enterprise-E's from Star Trek X
2. Enterprise D (again, same set, but redone for the E)

Favorite living quarters:
1. Enterprise E (a Voyager makeover)
2. Enterprise D

Favorite Captain's chair:
1. TOS Enterprise (it's the first)
2. Enterprise E (without seat belts)

I'd like to see the Enterprise-E bridge upgraded to today's tech with touchscreen LED panels that work. And the CON and OPS stations joined together into one unit like the TOS one. Put the Captain's ready room on the port side (where it should be). And put a standby bridge officers room with a proper stairway going down on the starboard side.

Re: Favourite bridge and interiors

Overall, I prefer all TOS, however, honorable mentions go to:

TWOK bridge and chairs. TNG Engineering and interiors. Enterprise: the series had some nice sets also.

Re: Favourite bridge and interiors

Just have to add...

I can't stand the JJ verse Enterprise and sets. On the big E the nacelles are too close together and it looks constipated from the front view (side view is ok). The bridge and interiors look like an Apple store threw up and whoever had the brilliant idea of using a brewery as engineering ought to be kicked to the curb.

Re: Favourite bridge and interiors

I hear that one a lot but I don't get it: how do you compare the new Enterprise interiors to the Apple store ? Did people come to that conclusion independently or did they read that off the internet and found it clever ? Because I don't see it.

Enterprise - D all the way around for me.

I especially love the crew quarters that have those couches against the window with the ambient lighting. I would love to fall asleep on that thing every night.

Tos, for both Bridge and interior spaces. They just say "Star Trek" to me.

Re: Favourite bridge and interiors

My favorite bridge is definitely the Defiant's. I especially like the captain's chair with the side-mounted computer panels. For interiors in general, I'd go with the NX-01. I love the "submarine in space" feel to that ship.

Re: Favourite bridge and interiors

Can we talk least favourite bridges for a second? The USS Sutherland from TNG gets my vote, as it looks like the command station of a fairly tiny vessel, not a supposedly fairly large Nebula class ship. And WTF is it with the helm and ops stations facing the captain's chair? Weird...

IMO, it's taking into account that the helm and ops stations don't have to face the main viewscreen, especially if they have monitors and other readouts embedded in their consoles telling them everything they need to know.
