Realistic expectations are not known among the Star Trek universe
It would be just a terrible idea, and far inferior to what they did here.
Think the new bridge just gets better and hope we see more of her
Me too. I can’t imagine them building this amazing set for just two episodes.
They put a lot of resources into it, but if I read the designer's interviews right it's enhanced with CG - not all the displays are live, and the main viewer is only what she called a "green screen template." Which would make economic sense.
We saw even more in the finale, and I like it even more.
Yeah, I thought it looked pretty great in the finale. The set looked good, the crew looked interesting -- bring on the Pike show.
Sorry, @Dar70, but this just isn't any ship other than the Enterprise - no bloody A, B, C or D...
The final shot of the bridge gave us another nod to TOS
When Spock activates his console, one of this displays changes to the swirly black and white thing
The way the episode went felt to me like they were hinting at a pike show, and the enterprise just gets better looking, does anyone know if there is a model kit based on it out
No model kit yet, but Eaglemoss does have two sizes of the ship as part of their Starships Collection.
I could be wrong, but I thought she was referring to how they didn't put those large transparent screens that are common at most of the stations along the sides of Discovery.
You're probably right, except for the bit about the main viewer:
That viewer is about 30 percent of the circumference of this design and no one touches it, so it figures that they'd save time and money there if practical.
One of the graphics people did say this on Twitter, which caused my confusion - when he says "VFX" he may be referring to the main viewer only:
The lean... with sparks coming out of things....
Round 2 has a 1:2500 scale model coming out late this summer. I've pre-ordered it via CultTVMan
Those final bridge shots were very carefully planned to evoke TOS. There's another shot of Spock from Pike's perspective, sitting at his station with the guard-rail in the lower portion of the screen.
To be honest I kinda hope they do a new Five year voyage with Kirk and Crew. Make an actual reboot rather than a shoehorned Alternate Reality like the latest movies. It's time now I think. Discovery would be the jump off point. (The Picard show should remain in the original continuity)

No thank you.
