I vote for the NX-01 bridge but for some reason it's not on the poll

:grr: :(


the Enterprise bridge looked so dang cramp. Who's idea was it to have the briefing room right behind the bridge where everybody can listen in. Also why would you want to stand to listen to a hourlong breifing. Now I know why the ship got scrapped after 10 years. :)

^ TVH bridge actually looks pretty similar to the XI bridge in that shot

It does to an extent. I like it because it seemed like a logical progression from the older control panels to the beginings of LCARs.
which  that subtle transition was lost with the brides for TFF and TUC.

It wasn't really lost in TFF.  TVH was the first use of Mike Okudas Okudagrams, his backlit colored displays which were used in all subsequent ST productions.  

Along with the new, brighter, white paint job, the shiny metal columns, and the bright lighting, the original movie Enterprise bridge set looked new at the end of TVH.  

When it came time to film TFF, Shatner and company found that the bridge set had been both modified significantly (into TNG's battle bridge, the Stargazer set and other sets, and, if I recall correctly, ruined from being left outside.  Herman Zimmerman had to build an almost entirely new bridge set.  This bridge set had the carpeting and coloring of TNG's Ent-D bridge and the touch-screen/Okudagram interfaces, that is, no physical switches.  In that sense, it was a further progession towards TNG's aesthetic.  

When TUC rolled around Nicholas Meyer wanted the bridge to reflect his stark military look for the Enterprise.  Again, it was radically modified and repainted grey and burgundy.  He also wanted some physical switches added back in.  So, in TUC, the Enterprise A bridge regressed a bit back towards the TWOK and TSFS bridge.

I voted for the "U.S.S. Enterprise (Constitution-class)." It lived pretty much unchanged from The Cage in 1964 RW to 2005 RW with the Defiant in In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II:


Standing the test of time. Nothing touches it. It is THE classic...

As for the NX-01, it was perfect for the series. The first Earth warp exploration vessel would be a bit rough and cramped. I loved that ship.

Archer and his groupies are desecrating that bridge and the uniforms.

Almost as if they're thumbing their nose at classic Trek

Not to worry though, their swan song came soon after ;)

I actually like this bridge better that the one used in TOS for some reason.

Are you kidding?

"IAMD" was the best homage to TOS since "Trials and Tribbleations."

:logical:

I like in a mirror darkly.  I just didn't like mirror archer and his groupies on the defiant. Regular archer and his crew ok, just not those mirror doofuses. I mean how many guys did Archer lose to the gorn, 5 crewmen, archer lost a section of the ship too, and got ambushed from his own fellow ship.  Archer can't even fill out the command wrap around.    :laugh:

because it's less colorful. I liked the hood viewers they had.

That one also had working viewers.  

They got rid of those for the series because from union rules they would have to have a projectionist for each one and they couldn't afford it with their budget.  So they only used them as viewers when they needed to for story purposes.  The rest of the time, they just had postes of astronomical objects in them and in some shots you can see the light reflecting off the wrinkles in them. :(

I love the original bridge, but that's one of the things that I didn't like about it. :(

1701 Original, as it actually looked like it was a military design for a bridge, to top it off, unlike other starships, it didn't have 50 mt of dynamite hidden behind each console ready to explode at the slightest rocking.

I never got why the TNG consoles always explode in your face. I mean sparking, alright, but I'm not going to sit behind a station that's going to blow off my face. :) ?As to another poster about standing stations, they're library/auxilary terminals, if you're in battle you won't have anyone at those stations.

No shit. ¿:cool:

Worf's console's on both the Ent-D and Ent-E were both standing stations.
