Will they ever paint the bridge?

It's so bright! All the time! I just want them to tone it down a little bit. Is that so much to ask?

Re: Will they ever paint the bridge?

Meh. I've seen so many different bridge colours and arrays, I don't really care. And given the lengths gone to make it look the way it does, especially since they left it the same after repairing the damage from the story, I wouldn't bet on it being anything other than bright and white (as long as Bad Robot is the production company).

I know. It's just really the one thing about the new movies that I don't like. The design of the bridge is fine, but it needs some frickin' color. All the other bridges we've seen have had color!

They can even keep it mostly white. Just add some color detail so it's not so blinding.

I would have to wear sunglasses if I was stationed there.
I think the Nemesis Bridge had the best lighting.

Yeah, honestly, you don't even have to paint it. Just turn the lights down a little bit.

Yeah, I've been asking myself the same thing, whoever put that glaring red thing right next to Starfleet academy?

...pretty sure they're gonna stick with the Apple Store look. They even have the bar code scanners in there.

I love it bright, just get rid of the flares from the flash lights being shone into the lens.

While the color scheme is far too bright. I think this was address in 2009 that the decor was borrowed from the Star Wars aesthetics. 1701=good (white), ala Rebel Blockade Runner & Nero's ship=bad (dark), ala Star Destroyer interior (grey-black scheme).

I personally like the white bridge, however I'm surprised they can keep the bridge so clean.

Re: Will they ever paint the bridge?

The Vengeance bridge was awesome... like Motion Picture mixed with the new bridge. Sadly, since the Venegeance is reviled by almost everybody else, hopes for the Vengeance being a replacement Enterprise (and so a new bridge) are a little far.

I don't mind the new bridge. It seems more ergonomic than the TNG bridge at any rate.

I rather like the white look of the new Enterprise. It actually taps into the concept of the original series various technological designs. It's high-tech, clean technology that is very streamlined and simple. I like that.
