    I love the way that the Bridge is interactive, that the graphic arts department is making it very dynamic.

    I’m just happy it doesn’t look like it’s shot through some weird filter.

    The bridge also has brighter lighting. They're taking criticism and making appropriate changes.

    I wondered if the TV was what Peck was referring to when he mentioned Pike’s quarters are filled with low furniture you can bump into. :lol:

    It's funny because this weekend I got my VR setup working again and played Star Trek Bridge Crew and was amazed at how the game turned those random LEDs from the TOS bridge into something resembling workable game controls for warping, combat, etc.

    In-universe the TOS control panels were a lot more functional than the props appeared so I've rarely had trouble visualizing the buttons, switches and toggles having multiple functions and being very easy to use.

    I think the corridor behind the bridge consoles is gone. The lighting is also brighter

    I think a lot of folks don’t realize the TOS bridge screens had text and gauges on them and weren’t just blinking lights. They’re more like futuristic submarine controls than people give them credit.

    One thing I wasn’t keen on in the Disco redesign is that they preserved the blinking lights but didn’t make them look like they had a function.

    Even ENT's throwback blinking indicator lights had numbers and lettering on them and descriptions about what they represented.

    Thanks (also to Asmasov, I still haven't figured how to quote multiple posts). I always took Chapel to be in her early to mid 30's, and Uhura to be late 20's early 30's so I can absolutely live with this time frame. And M'Benga never formed an opinion as he was such a small part in TOS.

    The doors no longer have the VOY pill stripe in the center, it's been moved up :shrug:

    though look at the shading of the saucer, I don't think it's flat anymore I think it curves like the original now

    It brings me disproportionate happiness that they’ve kept the distinctive TOS lighting over the turbolift door.

    And the bridge is more brightly-lit in addition to having so much more bright color splashed across the monitors and screens.
