Re: Favourite Bridge

I like the Sovereign class alot, the lay-out makes sense.

The Defiant is awesome, but then again, the whole ship is.

STVI bridge is indeed very cool.

And I have to agree, the bridge of the Vengeance is awesome, but there is more to that ship that I kinda like really.

Any bridge in which everyone has a seat.

Re: Favourite Bridge

Those Klingon bridges look like shit. Dark, no chairs for most people.

I'll take the Columbia because it has Erika Hernandez on it and fantastically awesome disco lights.

^Those lights on the Columbia would be more difficult to work around than the constantspotlightsinyourface! of JJ's Enterprise bridge.

Re: Favourite Bridge

Not my favourite bridge but more of an observation the Ent-D bridge never looked better than it did in GEN

Totally agree, those extra station at the sides, lit stairs at the captains chair & darker lighting make it look awesome.

Agreed with both posts!! Loved the E-D bridge in Generations, made much more sense somehow, with the extra stations and the raised captain's chair.

Re: Favourite Bridge

It's just a shame we could at least have had at least it lit like that in the TV show. But I suppose that's not possible on a TV filming schedule

Where is that from?
U.S.S. Vengeance from Star Trek Into Darkness. It is pretty slick looking.
Way too "designed" for my taste. Looks too much like a set.

I still prefer the TOS Enterprise bridge -- no bloody A, B, C or D. The basic layout is functional and realistic. (Okay, the split-level design with the raised outer platform isn't really necessary, but it does keep the bridge from looking too simple.)

Yep. I never really liked the Enterprise-D bridge, but all the various alternate universe and the GEN bridge all looked much better but still my least favourite of the hero ships.

TOS, Defiant, Ent-E and even the NX all had great bridges that looked good and were functional.

Re: Favourite Bridge

For the most part, the NX got it right. It certainly fit in its century (when compared to the other bridges). The captain had a good view of all the workstations. I wish that tactical had been located next to navigation, a la Constitution. In combat, the two stations should work together. I love the war room/planning area in the back.

I dislike the Intrepid bridge most of all. Why are the command officers penned in from the other stations? Why are almost all the stations behind the command area, requiring the Captain or XO to constantly get up and look around? (This isn't such a problem on the Galaxy given the need for a more diplomatic role.) Why would the tactical station do anything but face forward? I believe that the Intrepid has the greatest distance between command section and tactical, which I am sure works well during a noisy battle.

The rest? Galaxy should be tactical before command section. Moreover, I hate the "Hyatt-Regency look." Defiant is what is it--functional, not a lot of room. The original Constitution is great for allowing close collaboration between con, navigation, and tactical. The movie bridges seem gratuitous to me.
