    According to this it was
    http://www.kadonaga.net/147068/1461499/set-design-gallery/star-trek-into-darkness.html
    If you look carefully it basically has the same layout as the Enterprise bridge.

    Something I noticed going over Vengeance bridge pictures right now, they have a lot more switches, and less screens than the Kelvin Enterprise bridge.

    Not horrible. Just not one of the top designs for me.

    Doesn't sound like much of a cost-saver if they then had to de-redress it. :)

    Probably means they didn't have the budget for a complete new build or a new stage.

    If you look at the concept images at the top, it's completely different from what we got. which probably wouldn't work using the Skeleton of the Connie bridge.

    One of the ID bluray extras shows a time lapse of the set being modified to serve as the Vengeance.

    It's part of the reason they built all-new sets for Beyond, in addition to shipping costs to Canada, the bridge would have had to be totally repainted again which was deemed too expensive.

    Sure, but doing it twice is expensive as well.

    A new set for Beyond? Looked just the same to me. Again, expensive. Maybe in the end it would've cost less to do it for Into Darkness.

    The TOS Bridge is vague enough in its tech, computers, and how it works, that it can be handwaved as futuristic... even in its use of "tapes." The 80s bridge just has so many *dated* computer monitors and resolutions and what not.....

    It's ok as long as Star Trek is in its own timeline. After all, the Eugenics Wars didn't happen.

    What brave little R2 units those are. They'll help Enterprise leave Naboo now

    Agreed on the NX-01 bridge being better than the Enterprise-E's. The latter is serviceable and okay but it just never did much for me.

    Yep, and it looked much better when more brightly lit.

    The only rooms that looked better with movie lighting were Picard's ready room and Ten Forward. And I say that as someone who absolutely loves the cinematography in GEN.

    GEN killed TNG for me forever. Nail in the coffin kinda thing. I saw FC in theaters, and that was my last public appearance until the Wrath of Khan anniversary stuff and Shatner tour came around.

    yeah sickbay looks real bad.

    i also love the atmospheric lighting in generations, just not as much as the DP on discovery. every other episode is lit like generations except it rarely makes sense.
