I’d like to say…I absolutely LOVE the fact that the bridge is so very close to how Roddenberry wanted TNG to be. The original sketches and concepts where the bridge would have been more of a conference room/Lounge. KUDOs!
I can’t wait to see the giant view screen. 🙂
Kinda puts Groppler Zorn’s comment on how Farpoint Station was supposed to be “luxurious, even by human standards” in an almost frightening perspective.
I still love it though.
I want that bridge on my Narendra-class ship in Star Trek Online. 🙂
The bridge has a bridge.
“So. It’s been resolved that there’s a space anomaly headed our way. Do I hear a motion to take evasive action?”
“Is this evasive action to be sublight or warp?”
“Good question. Speed committee?”
“We’ve evaluated the speed of the anomaly and we’re about to vote on a recommendation.”
“Subl … no, warp.”
“That’s four warp, one sublight. Mr. Chairman, the speed committee recommends warp.”
“Very well. Do we have a motion for evasive action at warp?”
“Having a motion and a second, command clerk, please call the roll.”
Sounds like an average episode of TNG to me. Except they usually get up in the middle of the evasive action to go to the conference room to discuss the minutea instead of staying put.
I suppose the conference room being in the bridge would be a time saving measure, but on the other hand it would make it harder to have a senior staff only conference, unless there’s two conference rooms.
All I see when I look at this bridge is the bridge from the beginner’s guide. Probably has the same inspiration.
For really crucial command conferences, they could lower the Cone of Silence.
I SAID, THE … oh never mind.
Or, as the MAD satire of TNG put it:
PICARD: “Sound lavender alert! Man your welcome stations!”
not sure about the table. doesn’t really work for combat situation.
How do you figure?
the enemies aren’t going to take the captain seriously in that.
although i don’t much bridge designing 101. maybe there could be reason for it.
but to be fair he can put his drinks next to him.
He can always stand directly in front of the main viewer between conn and ops to look more imposing. If it worked for Picard than it can work for Asfhar.
To me the battle readiness of an exploration city-ship with families and civilians on board is the wrong aspect to focus so heavily on. I mean, it’s call an “Ambassador Class” not a “Admiral Big Guns Class”. Yeah, battle happens, but that’s not the attitude you want to put forward. The last thing the Enterprise D looked like was a war ship.
Nice! Like the appearance of one of the original concepts for the Enterprise-D bridge!
Is that the bridge? Seems awfully casual. And I can’t wait to see someone thrown over the balcony the first time they hit a spacial anomaly! :-p I love the huge displays in the back though.
There’s a containment field on the upper level and tractor beams to catch anyone that gets through. :p
do tractor beam in star trek work on organic matter?
It’s interesting that Berman style Star Trek teched-the-tech so much that what I said could be taken as anything but facetious.
