Is it me or does this bridge seem awfully cluttered?
You know how it gets during the Christmas shopping season.
I don't think the foreign kid at the helm inputed my order correctly for a Ipod Touch either.

Window!

Requiem for Methuselah.

When Flint shrinks the ship Kirk looks in and sees the bridge crew frozen.

Actually, I kind of see this as dumb luck that when Kirk leans down to look at the bridge module his eyes come parallel to the position of the still-running viewscreen. Unless Flint did something to the ship to allow the captain to peer inside.

We also see Kirk observing them which means it's two-way.

Hence, window.

Or maybe a flat electronic display that can be adjusted for opacity or transparency to ACT like a window in some cases.

Re: Bridge Layout guess

I, personally, believe it was always intended to be a viewscreen (and a one-way one, to boot) but this episode is certainly enough to shoot down a "canon violation" tag re: the new trailer.

Peace!

Ok, These new shots of the bridge are pretty useful, though the forward part is still a bit vague.

There are two hostess stations, and two exits.


Not only is the viewer huge (and not a window), it's also closer to the helm consol, methinks.




I like the new stations in front, but the stations in the back...Why is the lip of the station a foot thick? That woman in blue in the back has her knees up against it! She can't fit her legs under the consol. Seems very strange.
Note the second row of consoles to the left of the helm console. ahem.

Re: Bridge Layout guess

I'm really gonna have to get used to this "new" bridge. Even if no canon or continuity is violated in the story and Abrams is right about this being NO reboot whatsoever, the way this bridge looks is just too 24th century(or BEYOND)and distracting. The 29th century Federation timeship Relativity on VOYAGER looked more primitive in a lot of ways than this Enterprise.

To be fair, the Relativity wasn't that great of a set anyways. It looked barely more advanced than Voyager. I would expect the 29th century to look a lot less... 24th century.

Yeah, maybe (just maybe) this new brigde looks more modern than any of the other bridges lies in the fact that the 24th century design-easthatics (TNG) were all based on the late 1970s designs for the late 23rd century (TMP).
That design was already old when they started to use it for VOY.
Hell, the designs for ENT looked more modern and functional (and I say this as someone who really likes the TMP-interior designs).

Re: Bridge Layout guess

This "fascinating" window debate notwithstanding, I have managed to pin down another station location.

Communications is the first station AFT of the starboard turbolift. I got this from examining the BIG HD screencaps from another thread.

Additionally, the next station to the right of Comm (facing the outer bulkhead) is manned by a blueshirt. Another SCNC station?

Also, there appear to be more small stations on the fwd/stb part of the bridge INSIDE of the outer platform.

Re: Bridge Layout guess

Did the red alert klaxon lights and sounds remain unchanged? I forget if any were shown or seen in the trailer.
