    So we've seen the fed ships and we've scene the hq and it's interior. What do you think a 32nd bridge would look like?

    With programable matter, the bridge can look like anything you want it to be.

    Probably similar to what SF/FED HQ looks like (or a variation on the theme).
    Since USS Voyager was referenced in Discovery on several occasions, I imagine this could be the first 32nd century SF ship's bridge we see... but it will probably (or may) happen sometime in Season 4 (would be cool if both Disco and Voyager-J were shown doing joint missions and with Voyager being the other ship to start using the Spore Drive... or possibly see it using Quantum Slipstream Version 2 (10 000 Ly's per minute) now that the Federation is getting a steady supply of Dilithium (though technically, I don't think you'd need Dilithium and M/AM to power the QS V2... the thing could viably run off fusion power - but due to the Federation being limited in resources, its possible they had to wait for existing Federation members to get dilithium to properly set up facilities and reach them without the threat of the Burn - though, we've seen that hadn't stopped them going all the way to Kaminar or for Ni'Var to reach SF/Fed HQ in a relatively short amount of time).

    As for the bridge's layout... I imagine it will retain some notion of similarity to the 24th century Intrepid class.

    Maybe a cross between Book’s control cabin and the Relativity’s bridge?

    On a normal fully build federation ship in the 32nd century ? No idea as we didn't see any scene on it yet. Discovery hasn't fully converted yet.

    I figure it’s like the controls of Book’s ship but arranged like a Starfleet bridge.

    I'm imagining something less focused on discrete work stations than we are used to. As anything can be anything with programmable matter, there isn't a need to have fixed layouts, although in an emergency situation, familiarity is still of value.

    It would be cool with the programmable matter to do different themes with the bridge every so often: Throwback Thursdays to look like an earlier starship, have it set up for a birthday theme for a member of the crew another time, etc.
