Re: Bridge Layout guess

Ya I you're right. This bridge was initially bad, but it seems to be growing on me.

Yes!

She will always be the hostess.



When you see the movie, i bet the first thing you think of is; "Table for two please, non smoking."

As for the glass box on the right of the Hostess (her left), it doesn't even look like it goes all the way to the floor, and I can't see anything supporting it.
I did a zoom up of the area just below the pedestal, and it looks like there is a partial wall there, about 24-30" high that the glass box is supported on (and/or possibly retracts into). If there is one on the opposite side of the turbo lift, then it's kind of creating a 'mini corridor"

Re: Bridge Layout guess

Yes, I agree. I think it's worthy of consternation that the miniskirts aren't their original length.

And if they really wanted a modern reboot for the uniforms, they could just add thongs underneath those skirts!

LOL.

Well, if you could call Nichelle's piece of thread a thong.

So, unlike Star Wars, Trek does have underwear in space. Gravity defying bras and Shatners gravity defying gut are now explained.

We may all be amazed and surprised to find her station is awesome in the movie...
Until then, yeah it's a hostess station!

Re: Bridge Layout guess

The one thing I would change is the placement of the one glass panel. I believe it actually further away than it appears. Looks to me that it's right next to the turbo lift - separating the lift, from the rear workstations.
and

I like 2.0, though I think that the glass partitions are more likely at an exact right angle.
Exactly! It seems to me that the one plexiglass thingamabob next to the hostess station, tangential to the railing, is in the right place - but the other one is misplaced. It should

1) be more or less at right angles with the first one,
2) be quite distant from it, and almost the same width, and
3) go radially out from the railing, not in.

It would be a nuisance to traffic, then. But many of the bridge structures are.

We could call it the Greeter's Station? She greets all who get off the turbolift with a smile and a kind word...

^ I don't think that looks bad at all. In fact, I'd like something like that. Although the design lacks a certain kind of headgear.

Well done, ancient.
