They'd better have one damn-spankin' good explanation for why the bridge looks like that! I will admit that this is an awesome bridge. However, it looks like it belongs on something more like a 24th or 25th century Starfleet vessel. Especially given that this movie is supposed to respect canon. And it starts off in the original 24th century TNG timeframe. If so, why do all the displays and controls look more advanced and higher tech than even the Enterprise-E from TNG? It's too sophisticated. There are too many extra stations. The "waitress" stations are stupid and still defy logic. And the Galaxy Quest captains chair is a travesty. On the plus side, though, I do like the retro-looking chairs at the nav and con stations. One nice little homage to TOS. I guess that's the best they could do for us. Oh well.

And you knew I would have to say something. I have been very vocal about my dislike of this new iBridge design. And after seeing the panoramas, I stand by my opinion even more. I'm not saying that this design is ugly. It is a really cool, ultra modern design that does not fit within the existing continuity of the Star Trek universe. You can't have a bridge in a starship from the 23rd century that looks more advanced than a 24th centruy starship bridge. It just doesn't work. And I seriously doubt that the appearance of one time traveling Romulan could cause such a dramatic change in the design of bridges of starships.

Okay. Rant over. Fire away!!!

Why jump back on the merry-go-round. It's your opinion. It doesn't change anyone else's and vice versa.

I don't like the warp effect, what about seeing or fighting with other ships at warp now? The HUD style makes everything more realistic IMO. No more tedious dialogue of officers reporting the current velocity or other info to the Captain, he as well as the audience can just look in the screen (respectivey the screen in the screen) now.

That makes me wonder - have we ever seen ships fighting at Warp? They usually leave Warp upon starting a fight.

Zim: I don't know about you, but I've never actually seen a 24th or 25th century ship. I've seen 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and now 00s concepts of what they will look like in the future, but never actually seen the real thing.

Have you been doing some time traveling that you haven't told us about???

Well only torpedo firing, e.g during "The Best of Both worlds". The Borg cube chases the D which fired torpedos. Torpedoes have their own little warp drive while phasers don't work FTL, but I think that was ignored (just like beaming at warp or beaming through shields) once or twice when we saw phaser firing during warp, but I could be mistaken on that.

Better than a 23rd century bridge that looks like a 20th century film set.

Im not sure myself - just thought that most actual battles get fought at sub-warp speeds. So the viewer side of that wouldn't make a difference visually.
