In which TNG epsiode do we see an empty Enterprise bridge?

Hey people. I would like to ask for your help here.

I remember having seen a picture of a completely empty USS Enterprise-D bridge (without crew, that is), filmed from a high angel above or at least from the point of view from where the main viewer is.

I also remember reading some trivia about that shot, that it was only used once during the course of the series and in exactly one episode.

I am looking for this scene and can't seem to find it. Can somebody recall which TNG episode this shot is included in?

Can somebody recall the episode one can see that shot or anything about that bit of trivia I seem to recall?

Thanks

11001001? It could also have been Starship Mine.

Starship Mine would get my vote, too, just as Picard ducks into the turbolift before the clean up crew/terrorists arrive.

Starship mine could indeed be it. I'll go checking.

Thanks!

11001001 or Conundrum where my guesses, but Starship Mine seems to be more like it.

"Brothers" comes extremely close, but I'm not sure whether the bridge is ever _completely_ empty.

Re: In which TNG epsiode do we see an empty Enterprise bridge?

I have found the picture I seem to be recalling on a number of sites in the Internet and in the Star Trek Encyclopedia.

Example link here:

Does anybody recall the trivia bit, that that shot was used only once in the show? I don't count magazines, art books etc. I mean only screen exposure.

For what it's worth, while I am as interested as the next fan in what episode or episodes an empty bridge appeared, I don't believe either of those photos is actually from an episode. I think they were probably taken for press kits, the Companion, the Art of Star Trek or something like that.

Where Silence has Lease had an empty Galaxy Class bridge. But I think it's possible the picture(s) the OP saw were some kind of promotion picture or something. I've seen a webpage with a whole set of pictures of the TNG sets without any people in it, some of them at unusual angles.

Call me crazy, but I recall seeing the bridge empty several times. Starship Mine can't be the only time. I never thought of it as a big deal, but maybe it was...

Not sure but were there short moments when Data leaves the bridge in "Brothers" or when Worf & Riker are about to enter one of the many bridges in "Where Silence Has Lease"?
At least those up there are regular promo shots. There should also be some pics on the web which were taken from the 360 degree views on the Technical Manual CD.

Where Silence Has Lease was my other guess, too, although, isn't it the Yamato bridge, not the Enterprise's? Same difference, I suppose.

Of course, but unlike in Contagion that episode didn´t redress the bridge set. Hence the name of the ship doesn´t matter.

I'm sure an empty bridge gets shown at a weird angle when Data first starts dreaming - I forget the ep name.

Birthright, Part 1? Wasn´t that the one which had a bed on the bridge instead of the flight team´s consoles? Might be worth a try for references.
