    I don't know, to be honest these bridges all look pretty radically different to me. Hell, I would argue the new bridge has more in common design-wise with the TOS bridge than almost ANY of these others. It basically just looks like a high-tech update.

    It certainly fits in better with the group than the TNG bridge. That's the one that actually looks out of place.

    Then I guess you don't really love TOS and because of this your vote doesn't count.


    :lol:

    Typical.

    You expect the poor girl to work BOTH sides of the bridge by herself?

    Sheesh!

    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.

    The Kelvin bridge is a redress of this set, isn't that so?

    Maybe I'm colorblind, but I don't see any white on the Undiscovered Country bridge.

    Maybe he means Excelsior's bridge?

    All the stuff that looks gray on the screen caps, looks white when viewed on a Panasonic plasma TV with an Onkyo DVD player.

    Nope. They built a completely different set for the Kelvin.

    You're right, I was wrong - the Kelvin and Kobayashi Maru test bridges are related, not this one.

    Then either your plasma TV or your DVD player are in need of some serious adjustment since those screencaps are precisely how the bridge is supposed to look.

    Seconded, the 'caps are fine. Take a look at old mag stills of TUC for confirmation.

    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.

    Of course they need adjustment and of course the screencaps are precisely how you think they are supposed to look.:rolleyes:

    Don't have them. (Guess I've gotta turn in my card)

    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.

    Since I'm the last one to post in this thread, I'll just edit this post:

    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).

    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.

    All we need now, is John Madden to draw football plays over the bridge layouts, and make commentary about Brett Fahr. :guffaw:

    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.
