Bridge panorama - thoughts on design?
 
Hi. I know there's been a small amount of discussion elsewhere, I'm not trying to duplicate for the sake of it, but I think the panorama gives so much info that it warrants its own discussion thread.

I'm just flabbergasted how little comment there's actually been, given many site members' passionate criticism and defence of the new movie's design. There really has been a resounding silence from most of the "traditionalists" who have been eager to discuss fan made models for months, yet here we have the real thing and...silence? Maybe everyone likes the new bridge and happiness writes in white ink? :D

From my own point of view, in spite of the extra bridge stations I was quite surprised how many elements are kept from the sixties bridge, the steps up to the big chair, the railings etc. I found the design quite surprising, it has a retro quality that I hadn't expected and the size was much more compact than it first appeared....What do people think?

It's a wee bit cluttered for my tastes, but not bad. Those glass screens do seem a little pointless, but we all know what they're really for....UFRs! (Unidentified Flying Redshirts:001_tongue:)

best bridge , iam taking back my comments about star trek 6's bridge being the best, this design blows away everything , beautifuly crafted , lots of glossy displays , enormous viewscreen with glorious warp effect , it even has the lamps from the cage episode , the whole thing indicates the high production values of the movie:lol:

Interesting comment, I hadn't noticed the lamps from the Cage. Very eagle eyed of you! :thumbup:

I think that seeing it a lot more fully now, I'm happy with the additional stations round the outer rim of the bridge. I like the chair design and the raised section where it sits. I like the colour palette of things and it does seem a little smaller than it first seemed in the pics etc.

Love the huge viewscreen and the onscreen data updates for the Warp effect etc.

On the downside - was a little surprised that the dome didn't have a glass apex and the glass panels do seem a little out of place. I'm still unsure of the exact function of the standing stations around the Captain's chair but am waiting to see if it can be worked out from the film itself.

Hi guys quick question.

Imagine you are sitting in the captains chair, too your left you find a curved door which is obviously a turbolift but to your right their is a flat door, what is it??

Im putting my money on captains ready room

I noticed that door - have been wondering what it leads to.
