    Rekkert, posted over in his thread, that he (along side of the former stage-9 crew) spent some time looking into the various set chairs used in Star Trek over the years, and the results were compiled over at ex-astris-scientia.

    https://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/database/chairs-trek.htm
    https://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/temp/unidentified-chairs-trek.htm

    One of the chairs mentioned was the ones seen on the late Ent-A Bridge

    The article mentions a patent found for the chair, which was then heavily modified:
    https://patents.google.com/patent/US4738487

    Also mentioned was this commonly used chair:

    The manufacture's website has specifications listed:

    If you look on amazon you can find some nice front and side views of the chair as well.
    Edit: Also just found that the manufacturer has 3d models of it as well:

    Not exactly a set blueprint, but as these are set pieces I thought others would find them useful.

    Those chairs are a really good resource. It might be easier this way to find them on the internet or, if all else fails, make them ourselves!

    @BorgMan: Indeed, that was the main reason why I started that endeavour, as it was a huge pain having to look for measurements or high quality images of chairs I didn't know the name of. :)

    @batboy853: Regarding the Capisco chair, do keep in mind that, as stated in the article, the chairs used on all Trek productions other than Disco are not exactly those, but an older version of it, with a much shorter backrest connected to the seat from the back rather than the bottom. I'm sure HÅG has specific model numbers for these, but I wasn't able to find them.

    Here's a cheesy HÅG commercial showing both the classic and modern versions:

    I tried reaching out to Ergoform about the Enterprise-A chairs; still waiting for a response. I'm guessing that since the patent expired this year, and you can't find it for sale anywhere, that they haven't made the chair in ages, maybe decades, and the ones that got subsequent use on various VOY bridges-of-the-week were from the batch purchased for TFF.

    I think I found a mistake in one of the annotations made on the Equinox bridge blueprints. Specifically on this one.
    On B elevation you can see that the two steps at the bottom of the console have a combined height of 15''. Hence each individual step should measure 7.5''. However on C elevation right next to it, a single step is measured at 9.5''.

    The original image is somewhat hard to read, but given how the two steps are identical it should be a 7. Besides, on the other blueprint for this bridge, there are another set of steps annotated (on C section), and each one measures 7.5'' there.
