    That console labelled engineering, that’s where Nhan goes during last week’s episode, makes sense considering she’s an engineer.
    Engineering and Comms stations are in the same position as TOS, I believe. Scotty always seemed to use the console next to the turbolift at least.

    Also that bridge layout seems to be for the Mirror discovery, the logo is in front of the view screen.

    Actually, in TOS, communications was directly behind the center seat.

    ah right, I keep forgetting about that off centre turbolift. Still its the last console on that side.

    funny that the off center turbo didn't make it to discovery since it was done for a pretty practical reason, not forcing shatner to have to turn all the way around in his seat to address whoever enters the bridge in a given scene.

    The door to the front right is also a turbolift according to the sst blue prints, but I don't think it has ever been used

    There's one unlabelled free-standing workstation directly opposite Burnham's.

    Should both be perhaps labelled as "Mission Specialist(s)"?

    Could be for any number of reasons. Mission Ops? Damage Control? Auxiliary Systems?

    We just got reminded this past week that the Discovery started out as a science vessel. This is why I lean toward "Mission Specialist".

    It's been used quite a few times actually.

    They never make a huge deal out of its use, usually just characters walking onto the bridge from it, and Stamets runs towards it and enters it off screen 2 episodes ago. Easy to miss

    I doubt they had the stage space to do this, but man, I wish they had linked the straight corridor stretch to the turbo behind the bridge. Then the whole set is truly linked, and you can show the rear doors open with a corridor that would be inside the neck.

    Did a rough plan on my phone today using the actual Bridge floor plan. Had to alter the angle of the ready room, as the way it's built in the set doesn't fit with the hull shape. The starboard side corridor curves around the outer edge and links to the front turbolift, and also has access to the HAL alcove as an entrance to the bridge (we see people walking back and forth in there on the show, implying a corridor)

    The port side front door (opposite the turbo) leads to a little break room area for the crew. The space between that room and the ready room can be anything really, but likely a conference room which is accessed via doors in both the break room and ready room. I'll probably make a more refined and detailed version at some point.

    EDIT: this does mean we have to ignore the 2 little windows we see flanking the bridge on the starboard exterior, as there's no way to fit both a window room AND the forward turbolift in the same space.

    Getting the "Do Not Enter" highway signage in Firefox instead of your art.

    Same goes for Opera and Chrome. :-(

    Thanks :D yeah just a rough plan to get an idea of a possible layout. It fits all the on-screen evidence and works as a pretty functional plan. Really hoping they show some more of the surrounding rooms of the bridge on the show
