    They did have a nice briefing room.

    The Mego Pike figure's promotional photos have it standing in an unfamiliar corridor. Whether it was mocked up for the doll or if it's indicative of the new Enterprise sets is unclear.

    That does look to be just a mockup corridor for the toy.

    I don't expect any TOS design elements. It would be nice if they went there towards the end, like a refit when Kirk takes over, but they've made it pretty clear that visual continuity doesn't matter to them.

    which was another redress. Though that doesn't mean they can't recreate it.

    Good, it has been over 50 years.

    I loved the Kelvin Universe USS Enterprise designs inside and out, any cues from there, like the atrium from Into Darkness (which is pretty much the Disco S3 SFHQ set), would go down well with me.

    Indeed. It's not technology hasn't change in the last 50 years or anything.

    That’s not true at all. Pretty much EVERYTHING about the Enterprise — uniforms, corridors, briefing room, Spock’s quarters, and absolutely the bridge — were 99% faithful to the original designs and colours. Sure, it didn’t look like it was made in the 60s, but I’m more than happy with what we got.

    "Faithful" is w-a-y overstated, at least with respect to the redressed sets. "Observant of the original designs" would be more accurate.

    The designs came from the 1960s.

    They don't have to stay that way.

    Still doesn’t change the fact the designs are from the 60s.

    TNG and Enterprise did it for Fan Service (and DS9 because they really couldn’t change it). It would never happen for an entire TV series.

    doesn't change the fact that they were consistent for 39 years

    Doesn't change the fact they didn't need to be.

    And they weren't first chance Gene got, he changed it all. If he had made his own version of Relics, I doubt the TOS set wouldn't have been 1:1.

    Though he was very much against these direct TOS references according to people who worked with him, so it was probably unlikely do have happened anyways.

    Indeed, yes. There was no need for them to remain the same. Star Trek had committed to updating itself as appropriate to the time and age it was produced, largely because Star Trek is fashioned as our humanity's future. When technology becomes unfamiliar then it ceases to be as relevant.

    I could not take seriously if SNW utilizes one flavor per data square type data storage, or Spock clipping audio via individual tapes.

    Nostalgia is fine for a one off in celebration. But not for an entire series.

    The TOS look does not work in the 21st century.

    The updates they did in DSC Season 2 are great. The bridge could be a bit less shiny.

    I mean, it's too late for that. Discovery has been using those since Season 1. Though they're transparent.
