    Filling in some of the 23rd-24th Century (AKA my unskilled PS Trek doodles)

    For a while now I've been slowly putting together a collection of ideas for an "idealised" Enterprise-C interior, one that (like the Probert concept) doesn't lean quite so heavily upon the Movie-era aesthetics of a good 40 years earlier... The intention is to create a set of rough blueprints, mockups, and PS paintovers for the commissioning of a new Bridge and other areas in 3D, and to better flesh out the "lost years" before TNG.

    With that in mind, below are the first rough images of what direction I'm taking the Okudagrams in: A "final install" version, which hints at the LCARS to come. The colors are currently sticking to the movie era, but that may yet change.

    I'm pretty satisfied with the "door control" type panel layout, but I know the other input panel needs a bit more fleshing out. Ideas? Suggestions?

    Thanks @FANGS! I'm what most would call a low-level PS user

    Cheers buddy! In fact probably the main reason I've finally started posting was your feedback.

    So here's another element I've been working on; corridor deck/section signage. I'm basing these primarily off some of the old TNG pre-production concepts done by (I think?) Mike Okuda, as I felt they made an ideal go-between for the Movie and early TNG eras. The colors are intended to match up with the various Movie-era divisions, to denote the function of a particular section in that deck.

    Below are some of the ST 4 displays from the Enterprise Bridge, the layout of them are earlier than the finished and polished look used in ST 5 and 6

    @mdta thanks for sharing those; they may be handy for the Constellation bridge (and possibly for what she looked like when launched!). I love the extra commentary regarding how they were expected to function!

    What I'm working on here is a link between the Generations style of Okudagrams and labelling/signage, and what we saw by the time of early TNG.

    You should consider the colour scheme and font choices.

    Something between the Narrow fonts of LCARS, and a bridge between the Blue and Green of the Movie Era, and the Orange, Purples, Creams, and Pinks of TNG LCARS

    The font type is staying as it is; though as I mentioned in the initial post I may decide to tweak the color scheme (not much, as I'm quite fond of the traditional palette - and besides which, remember that early TNG was more of a mix of olive green and blues).

    I don't want to go overboard when it comes to bridging the gap, and I already have a proto-LCARS -the immediate successor to these- that I've been putting together; it holds minor elements and references back to the Movie era. It's intended to be installed sometime in the 2340s. I'll post those at a later date, but for now:

    Standard doorsign, based on some of the Generations signage but with a TNG touch

    And some example labels. I figure by this point in time, Starfleet has migrated fully away from the bigger 4:3 ratio labels, to something akin to TNG (though a touch bigger). As with the previous corridor signs, labels are dept color-coded according to designation. Here we have:
    1) Engineering systems
    2) General use labels
    3) Critical systems
    4) Medical equipment

    This stuff is all super nice. I have been thinking about the not-okudagrammed-LCARS-without-copyright-replacement for my universe and how to make it nice without looking like I'm trying to copy Star Trek. Since you seem more skilled than you're willing to admit, mind giving us starters some tips, and then passing judgement on our vague attempts to mimic your work? ... And would we have to call you Sensei?
