I honestly can't remember the last time I actually saw an image change on one of those upper monitors. When did they ever do that?

This is in TOS itself, by the way. IIRC, the Defiant bridge in "In a Mirror, Darkly" did have the images change. But they got away with that because it was only one scene and there were no continuity issues.
Just FYI - the "Friday's Child" shot you have is from the remastered version of the episode. In the original version of the episode, it was just a bright white light dot on a blue background - and the dot faded out as they were talking.
Yes, I know. I didn't have a screen grab from the original non-new visual effects version available. (It's a matte shot showing movement even in the original episode.)

Re: The Cage bridge.

Wow, I never read those files on Mitchell and Dehner in detail before. It's remarkable that they actually wrote detailed entries on both characters rather than just sticking in some lorem ipsum, considering that there was no home video or HDTV and the viewers would never be able to make out a word of it. There's some fascinating background information in those, like the telepathy of the Deneb IV inhabitants.

Also used in "What Are Little Girls Made Of" to display Exo-III graphic and Roger Corby picture, this looks matted in. In "Patterns of Force" used to display John Gill but that looks rear projected.

Well, we *are* looking for all the ones that were matted in and had motion. Like I said in the OP, I think Korby and Gill were just static rear projections with no movement. I think the Exo III diagram was rear projection, too. It shows up again in "The Tholian Web."

I always liked the "Cage" color scheme, but retroactively I've always thought that in-universe the latter TOS era colors may've been an attempt to brighten things up for spacegoers - space is dark and you're on the ship all the time, so let's have something bright and colorful and less dreary to stare at.
This was a real concern after Skylab. Everything was in golden brown hues, and by the 3rd Crew, everyone was sick to death of it.

I don't know what they've done with the I.S.S. to improve on that.

As for Spock's hand-gesture controlled slides, if the lady was cropped out of the shot, she was never there. That's what editing is for.
