ROFL It is pretty amazing what they accomplished with what little they had back then.

I think something will be missing if the new bridge consoles have all 'soft' buttons on LED/LCD screens like an interactive touch-panel screen. Just my humble opinion. Everyone is free to disagree.

I would think they will keep the general look of the bridge instruments, much like they did with the Defiant on the ENT Mirror episodes.
