METAPHOR ALERT! I understand what the Great Bird was saying. However, it is the collection of motion picture sets and models used for visual effects that makes the whole thin go. Try to tell the story without the bridge or the Enterprise herself and see how far "imagination" gets you. GR was trying to say that Star Trek was a revoultionary idea in its day and that it was completely different from any other sci-fi show that had come before. Not that the sets and ships didn't matter. If that were the case, they would have changed the design of the bridge and the Big-E several times over the course of the series, or just randomly assigned ship names to whatever model they wished.
