Bridge and set plans! (big pic)

Source: http://www.harryottodesign.com/gallery.html

At long last! I've wanted these since 2009. It's a shame not all the labels are legible, but here are the bridge, lobby, transporter room, medical bay and the corridors.

The mysterious stations either side of the viewscreen are labelled "observation". The consoles either side of the helm/nav station are labelled too, I can make out "security" on the right side and "damage control" on the left. I can't make out the other two functions, though. The podiums are "aux. science" and "aux. com"
Oddly, in the movie Spock and Uhura sit side-by-side at the Science station leaving communications to Hannity and Madeline. The thing behind the captain's chair is the "aux. systems display"

And, since it's been bugging me forever, here's how they should fit inside deck 2 of the Enterprise. As I suspected, the corridor outside the bridge extends outside the ship. But on the plus side, the other end joins up to the lobby quite nicely

Freaking awesome!

My guess is that "extra corridor" is just meant to be extra, they said they had the entire set connected, but it doesn't mean the med bay, transporter room, and bridge are layed out like that for real.

I'm dying to know how they did that "glass screen" look for the main screen!

Surprised that the artist labelled the main "compartments" in the Peanuts/Schulz-style font.

The stations tagged "observation" are intriguing. Set aside for civilian researcher/investigators, maybe?

My god thats a big ship. !

Nice standing sets there, a good base to build some more sets required for a weekly tv show ! Engineering, Mess Hall, Science Labs, Shuttlebays and Cargo Bays needed to finish it off.

That looks to me like the floor plan of the real studio set, not of the floor plan of what is supposed to be under the bridge dome in the fictional universe.

The "peanuts/schulz-style font" you refer to is similar to a number of fonts used in blueprints. It's a throwback to when blueprints were drawn and labeled by hand. My modern design software use fonts like these as the default for labels.

It was only meant to be a rough idea. If I were making a proper in-universe floor plan, I'd take the same liberties that everyone from Franz Joseph to Rick Sternbach took when blueprinting past ships. I'd shorten that protruding corridor and curve it more so the turbolift fits snugly against the bridge and inside the hull, I'd shorten (to leave room for the two-storey observation lounge) and either straighten the rearward corridor or (since it's odd shape is clearly seen when Kirk calls Scotty) come up with a reason for it to be curved at the end like that.

Re: Bridge and set plans! (big pic)

That's a nice logical placement of things with the information given, King Daniel. Still, I find the angle of the placement of that bridge in the lobby odd. For what it's worth, it would make more sense if it ran at an angle from the bridge entrance to the lobby over to the turbolift. Basically from 2 to 8 o'clock on the schematic you made, above. As is, one enters the lobby from the ship's bridge and either turns right and goes around to the turbolift, or turns left and goes to the long hallway. The lobby bridge just dead-ends into the back of the ship's bridge.

From what I can make out when I blow up the picture, GATT2000 was stationed at the Auxiliary Science station, and the comparable station on the other side of the command chair is Auxiliary Communications. I can also make out weapons and defense stations on the captain's right, and environment and engineering on his left. There are observatory stations on both sides of the view-screen/window. Can't make out anything else.

That would make more sense, giving a nice clean walking path from the bridge to the rest of the deck. It'd be an easier fit if they hadn't made the lobby an oval, though...

That it also appears to be the same exact dimensions as the bridge makes me wonder if the set builders were thinking it was supposed to be underneath the bridge originally.

Re: Bridge and set plans! (big pic)

Which would not surprise me, but for the Cinefex coverage of the movie, p. 86 of # 134, specifically:

...Pixomondo created gravity shifting effects in the primary hull atrium, which Scott Chambliss built as a single-story set. "J.J. shot a big tilt-up inside the turbolift plaza", related Ben Grossmann. "We extended that five stories up and eight stories down, with glass domes at the top and bottom looking out in the space..."
