Recreating in CGI only what we've seen before and existed in real life is unforgivable. We had this with the Interactive Technical Manual -- the exam same sets -- because they had real photography of the actual sets. Now they are doing the same thing with CGI replicas. Why? Use CGI to show us what we didn't see and what didn't exist. The main shuttlebay, Cetacean Ops, the malls and lounges that Probert envisioned, etc.
^^^ Everything said here. Exactly.

Anybody remember the old "The Captain's Chair" CD-ROM from the nineties? That was awesome, I'd love to see an updated version of something like that.

Re: On Board the Enterprise-D

You bet. The Captain's Chair. Interactive Tech Manual. Plus the VOY Elite Forces games, with the modded ships interiors. All that stuff.

I have all the originals, but can you imagine those same things updated with today's tech? We really should be able to free-explore all the Enterprises, checking out the Main Shuttlebay and all levels of engineering and God knows what else.

Instead... re-hash.

The Ent-D Interactive Tech. Manual was awesome. Hell, I'd pay to have a modern-day version of that.
