Yes, based on the blueprints for the E-D and some of Probert's concept art we really missed out on some amazing sets. If I was casual 3D artist that is some of the stuff I would try to recreate.

Well, if we ever have an anthology or all animation trek--maybe we will see some whitefire designs fleshed out.

Re: Small things you'd've liked to've happened in TNG

I would have liked to have seen the poor Ensign assigned to cleaning up everyone's quarters after the ship gets rocked hard, like in "Tin Man." Imagine being the guy having to arrange all of Picard's books on his shelf, Worf's arsenal of weapons, the arboretum, the candles in Guinan's quarters, etc.

^it wouldn't be an ensign... Officers don't do cleaning

Besides I don't think anybody cleans Picard's quarters. He's too private to have a maid.

^ It wouldn't be an enlisted person, either... the ship supposedly cleans itself!

There must also be an Ensign who's job it is to clean up all the semen that is left behind whenever Geordi uses the Holodeck to get laid.

For Tom Riker to not have had a beard.
Frakes could have grown the beard back over the summer break, so film all the Will scenes, then shave clean, then film all the Tom scenes. It would have been great.
Doesn't work that way since the crew tries to get all the shots on a given set in one block so they don't have to move equipment and all all, and since there are splitscreen shots of both Rikers, it wouldn't be practical to do what you're suggesting.

Not to mention the inside of the main shuttlebay and cetaceans, which we never, ever saw.
Why would you want to see the inside of cetaceans?
Maybe Avro's real name is Jonah?

While we never see such a person, I would imagine that Picard does have a yeoman. Picard's time is simply to valuable for his to be occupied with life's little trivial activities.

Re: Small things you'd've liked to've happened in TNG

Someone to listen to music that wasn't classical or jazz.

Someone to play something that actually looked like fun on the holodeck.

Klingons and Romulans that look different to the incredibly generic and stupid long hair/perm/armour and bowl cut/shoulder pads prefab designs.

Something to establish whether or not Klingons still had subject races in the 24th century.

^Some of the stuff we saw on holodeck during the TNG era did look fun to me. It's based on personal taste

What do you consider fun to use on the holodeck?

Dixon Hill and that phaser target practice range we see the crew use (Picard, Riker, Worf, and Guinan IIRC) looked fun to me.

How about Worf's calisthenics program?

I'd come up with a holoprogram about hiking the Appalachian trail, or what would become it, during the Jurassic- it would have been like hiking the Himalayas.

Maybe Worf could have mixed it up a bit. We see him listening to a lot of Klingon opera, perhaps he'd have a taste for Heavy Metal. Lots of songs about battles and violence. Something like Saxon or Iron Maiden.
