Re: Bridge Layout guess

It's a window/display with variable opacity. So it can be a window, a display like in TOS, or a HUD with a graphical overlay enhancing the view.

Re: Bridge Layout guess

Well the TOS viewscreen was a flat, electronic projection display. Never a window. Some people still think it was.

It couldn't have been a window... the bridge was off-set by 36°

Re: Bridge Layout guess

There's no way to tell from that image what it is other than a glowy bit on the hull.

Which is what fans like myself...even if we were still kids at the time...knew if we owned books like THE MAKING OF STAR TREK by Whitfield. The B&W blueprints clearly showed the bridge never faced directly forward, so the straight-line, streaking stars clearly couldn't have been images through a window.

You get a kick out of that, don't you?

Even though the Kelvin is an older design that the Enterprise, she too has that window-like bit

Yes
Although it's funnier when CRA reacts to it

Re: Bridge Layout guess

Does anyone know what the bar code scanners are for?

There are two on the helm and two on the "hostess station"?

Nope.
The spotlights for the registry are a little lower.
There might be others lower down, but that band of light is not a window. Its the wrong shape, in the wrong place, and there are others like it to the port and starboard.

I still think it's a window/viewer combination.
Why? I don't see any real evidence of that in any of the pics, and there is no window on the outside of the ship from what we've seen.
And as further window-evidence I present you this:

Looks completely blank. There are three spotlights on what looks to be deck 2, but they don't seem to be the right size. The Kelvin's window on the other hand is clearly visible. It's an older design so I like the idea of design progression. I'm not really opposed to a window, but I still see no evidence of it. In fact, this picture seems to confirm that there is no window.

Yeah, this is the future! Bar code scanners are everywhere.

Yeah, I think that's where this notion came from, but it could just as easily be because of the camera angle - reverse shots on the viewer (such as the one in INS) can include the edges of the nacelles, for example. It could be a window, but I see no reason to jump to that conclusion.

My creative technobabble on it:
---
3 Dimentional image gleaned from exterior sensor data, made to look and feel like a Window in "Default" mode.

The display superimposed form a HUD-like interface, and the viewer can display any frequencies, data or angle afforded by computer and/or sensor data, and is also integrated into the Communications systems for 2D or 3D display of transmitted data.
---

If you look at the Bridge being built in the teaser, it is clear that no portal for a Window exists.
