Platform looks cool, but the transporter room? Just like the bridge, seems needlessly large...and more seemingly pointless glass panels...

Not sure I agree about the transporter pad being too large. First, it's a wide angle shot meant to show as much area as possible (and thus slightly distorting the perceived space available), and second I bet that if you put four other crewmen on those pads, the space would quickly get cramped.

Hard to tell from one low-angle image, of course. I'm liking the swirling transportation effect more every time I see it -- interesting how few fans are balking at this change. Then again, the series was never consistent about it anyway.

Timeline was exactly what I thought of.

It's definitely bigger. Look at a few pics of the TOS transporter chamber.



Never consistent with the transporter effect? It looked the same all through TOS...

No... all the series: TNG was different from TOS, one movie was different from another, etc. Sorry if I wasn't clear.

Well that's easily explained by changes/upgrades to the equipmnt over the years...

Look at the ceilings of both. They look the same size. I agree that the new Transporter is being shot with a wide angle lens.
