Oh, I have. And when I was, I did.

On-topic, I'm going to go off into the wilderness alone with my love for the nuEnterprise bridge. I don't care if it's lit like the center of the sun. I like it.

I think the Kelvin bridge is my favorite... Gotta love the three windows/viewscreens.
Yeah the Kelvin was pretty slick looking. I also liked the NX-01s quite a bit

From a purely dramatic standpoint, I think that bridge stations manned by standing persons offered the most potential for the actors — Worf benefited the most from this, but so did Tuvok to an extent and even TOS-Spock (to the extent that his station's horrible ergonomics required him to stand a lot) So the Voyager bridge with its two standing stations gets high marks on this point.

From a practical standpoint, or at least an in-universe practical standpoint, I'd also go with the Voyager bridge — given the importance of the viewscreen, it makes sense to have as many people as possible facing it. That's a big problem with both the pre-TNG Enterprises and the Defiant — they've got important stations facing away from the viewscreen (and with their backs to the captain, no less).

(Oh, as for the look of the computers, here's another vote for TUC.)
I thought Tuvok and Kim had those really tall chairs?

I assume you mean mine. Tactical Has NO chairs.
the 3 command chairs lay below as I suggested. the 2 forward stations obvously have chairs.

back stations have chairs that are along the back circle peace of the bridge where apropraite. these chairs dispersed unlike the command area chairs are a little more less about function than comfort.

Jefferies' designs look to have been equally inspired by the dramatic/budgetary demands of the show, probably the look of then-current space stuff like the American space program's Mission Control facilities, and then to some degree by naval control rooms.

Why do you trouble me with that creepy looking face? Its just staring at me...it SCARES me.

TFF and Excelsior bridges were good.Voayager too.Hated the hideous gray of TMP.I would use cgi to colorize that bridge.

I think they should from now say that:-

By the way do moderators get paid or do they do it just for the total power?

They do it to help people.

I'm sure you may be full of idealist eAnarchy, but on a big board like the TrekBBS... a modless environ would result in chaos, I assure you, my good sir.

Cut out the personal 'shots'. Also, you've already been cautioned about multiple posts in a row - don't do it again.

Oh yeah - "BEHOLD! I AM THE MODERATOR AND THIS I DECREE..."

Re: What bridge design do you like?

I just thought of something I that is not bridge design specific, but it would be a cool feature to have. I would like to have the ability to have holographic images projected up from, or down to, tables. You know, something where instead of always having to view a screen you can have the option of having it projected in front of you in 3-D on the table. And if you're viewing a planet you can have the option of touching a spot and enlarging it, kind of like on the iPhone. How cool would that be? I just remembered something. I read the first three Titan books and apparently the USS Titan has the ability to do this. I think that would be cool.
