Considering the class that the Kelvin belonged to was only about 70 years after the NX class, there was bound to still be some similarities...

:logical:

It's very possible that the Kelvin is from a class of vessels sooner than that, it's just that we see it about a good 70-80 years after Enterprise.

Does anyone think they'll redesign the Enterprise bridge for the next movie?

while bringing the spx up to date, i would like to see the bridge more familiar and looking like the bridge from TOS

Both were great, but I give my nod to the Enterprise. Kelvin felt like a sub (which could be considered a plus) but it felt cramped. The Enterprise felt more roomy (is that even a word?) and felt more like the original (albeit with tons of white).

This was preproduction art for the Star Trek: Phase II bridge, which of course became Star Trek: The Motion Picture...



And this of course was Pike Prime's bridge from "The Cage"...



:logical:

Nice find starbase. This makes me feel better about the "IBridge" in that its not that different than some of the earlier Trek concept art.

If you eliminate the lights on the Enterprise bridge it really isn't a bad design. The thing about the Kelvin bridge is that except for the picture that is posted here I don't think the movie really gives you a good look at it. Most of the shots in the opening are of the people's faces.

I like them equally for different reasons.

What about how white it is? Is this too much for anybody?

I agree with this too, it is just too stark white...although I am not sure what color scheme would work better.

It's simple ever since 2001 white = future.

Star Trek has played off of this many times as well. White does give a very clean, very nonindustrial look. I too agree that it was the excessive lighting that was distracting. Along with JJ's obnoxious lens flares. A few would have been nice but he definitely went overboard.

This is very true. I also like the homages to 2001 A Space Odyssey which are seen in The Motion Picture and the new Star Trek. This modern depiction of a "white" future also influenced productions like THX1138 and Star Wars.
