    I was eyeballing a lot of the dimensions when I put my drawings together, so it’s more than likely I didn’t have the briefing room scaled correctly. Or it’s probable the briefing room layout I scanned from the old ST Magazine article wasn’t correct.

    I would not be surprised if the original intention was that “Cage” briefing room was directly below the bridge - thus a similar diameter and turbolift entry directly into the room. I know that’s how I read it when I fleshed out Jefferies’ cross section.

    And then Pike's quarters could be nearby on the outer edge of Deck 2 or 3, accounting for the curved wall and light source/maybe porthole?

    Yeah, because watch in the 1st pilot how people walk between the pillars and the walls.

    I apologize being absent from this discussion, but I've been working on a secret project for a few days. Not related to this thread, but definitely Trek related. Actually, outside of my usual eras of intersest. Stay tuned.

    @Donny - that sounds exciting!

    No worries. I don't think the attempt to camera-match the pilot briefing room had been done before (I had googled for references and what Firebird had was really what was available at the time.) It is about the same diameter of the bridge.

    I think so too. But funny enough when I look at the cross section in TMOST it almost looks like the pilot briefing room is where the bridge is. When I look there I see the box shape representing the angled struts and ceiling. It lacks the bridge's center pit...:)

    It's probably from me looking at the pilot briefing room too much. This is what I see in the cross section (top). The bridge, in my opinion, isn't properly represented in the cross-section. I modified the TMOST cross section on the bottom with what I expected to see for the bridge. :)

    I see where you're coming from.

    I know the section's highly schematic, but I don't think the scales match up at all.

    Based on that, the Briefing Room would be roughly half the height of the corridor.

    The pit on the bridge is probably 300-400mm deep. at most it would be about half the thickness on any of the deck lines - you can't see it because it's too small to be perceptible.

    True, the scales are a bit wonky - just looking at the turbolift at the bridge it's half the height of the floors below (or the A frames are twice as tall.) But just commenting on the shape in the room it most resembles the briefing room structure, IMHO. :)

    Like I say, I see where you're coming from. If anything, there's an argument for interpreting the rectangle in what we know to be the bridge as the briefing table lmao

    OK, if that's the briefing room table, then where is the bridge? :p

    Where it should be - in the exact center of the primary hull so it can't be taken out by a single torpedo in battle. :D

    Where's the fun in that? :p

    (Well, Lt. Branson, redshirt helmsman in Star Trek Nemesis, might disagree...)
