Two turbolifts, then?

Yes. This is definitely a visual canon reboot even if the storyline and timeline are meant to tie into the rest of the established TREK universe since "The Cage." I no longer have any doubts.
There's nothing to indicate one way or another that there are two turbolifts. It was just a guess in the drawing. But there were two turbolifts on the TAS bridge, I know its canon status is tenuous, but it doesn't seem any more unreasonable that a second one would have existed than any of the other changes to the look of the ship.

Crappy photoshopped Enterprise!

I thought this was a pretty cool picture, so I decided try doing something like it myself.

I'm far less experienced in Photoshop however since I only just got it. I'm teaching myself right now, having last used it several years ago in college. I used the blur tool a lot this time, but the main difference here was to see if I could replicate the way the bottom of the Enterprise saucer looks. I just flipped the "top" of the Kelvin's saucer to get the shadows on the right side so that it would look like the dip in the bottom half of the Enterprise's saucer (as we knew it before whatever it'll look like in the movie).

Re: Bridge Layout guess

There's a new picture of the viewscreen. It's much clearer, and being discussed here. What implications does this have on the bridge layout speculation?

It mean's there's either an HD cable box or a Direct TV dish around there somewhere.

Sorry if the little letters are a bit hard to read. The red spots are about the position of the people in picture 1 and 2.

The green is what we can see in each pic. Anything not in green is total guess-work. Still, I'm getting a bit better of a feel for it.
All we need now, is John Madden to draw football plays over the bridge layouts, and make commentary about Brett Fahr.

Re: Bridge Layout guess

I don't know about the implication of the layout, but the implication that these guys haven't got a clue about what they're doing is glaring.

Re: Bridge Layout guess

The viewscreen is the first time Ive thought "hang on this isnt right", will see what its all about though it may still be a viewscreen which just looks like its a window.

Capt April, you should put that in your sig, would save you alot of time repeating it plus it would then appear on every post you make without you having to type it to express it

Explain? Please cite reasoning, as opposed to needless and nondescriptive snark intended only to annoy. We've heard that too many times from you already for it to serve any useful purpose.

And try not to be quite so obvious, OK?

Never mind...

wait... looking at that picture of the Sovereign class bridge, I see what appears to be two hostess stations.

Lose Riker and Troi's chairs, streamline the center seat, add an additional station to the rear wall, and it doesn't really look all that different than what we've seen of the new bridge.

I really hate this bridge, it looks like a parody of a sci-fi movie, rather than a serious attempt at what a starship bridge would look like.
I just watched Undiscovered Country again last night. This bridge is remarkably like that bridge. TUC's bridge was all white, except for the computer panels were black. TUC's bridge was very large, with many more people on it than on this historical bridge. TUC's bridge had lights shining down into the actors faces.

Note that to my eyes on my plasma, the bridge looked whiter than on these screen-shots.

I think it DOES look more like other bridges than some are willing to admit. I just did some tinkering. If you add more light to the other bridges, they suddenly don't look so different. Conversely try darkening the new bridge for the same effect. Personally I hope that during red, or even yellow alerts, the inside lights dim. I just don't think the glare from inside lighting is beneficial, in fact it would be a distraction.

When have facts ever stood in the way of this type of fanboy? Even seeing is not believing to some.

Madden- Here's Kirk and he's making a pass at the hostess but is intercepted by Spock. Spock brings up some details on the Enterprise and Kirk tries to sideline Spock.

Kirk passes it to Bones and Bones diverts Spocks attention. Kirk makes a beeline to the hostess and TOUCHDOWN!

Also, now that we have pictures... the viewscreen is no longer flat, but curved.
