    I mean, supposedly the whole idea was to leave the saucer behind with non essential personal and just go into battle with the stardrive, too bad budget constrains put an end to that idea, as doing FX shots for both the ship and the separated parts was too expensive.
    It was ahead of its time in a sense, today with CGI, that could've worked really well, and they'd use the battle bridge every time they know they're going into a dangerous situation. Imagine how much more tense every standoff with the Romulans or Cardassians would be if they'd be in the darker and more compact battle bridge rather the the hotel lounge main bridge.

    Anyway... I've added the chosen version of the lights all around the bridge, plus I've added a further TNG touch by making the strips a reflective silver. That's something we only really see on the Enterprise-D and E. The TMP era lighting fixtures (and the Odyssey and all other redresses) are always a non reflective black.

    I must say I prefer the older, bigger ceiling structure, but this one does work a bit better with the era. I'm not sure the stripes work on the ceiling lights though... Maybe the original angled lines from the Sutherland would work best.

    Go with the original angled lines from the Sutherland then. They would definitely look better with that ceiling fixture.

    I think the resaons for it not working are several fold:
    1) The ceiling light being so much different a color from the lower strips,
    2) The edges of the light panels being so severel angled compared to the rounded lower ones
    3) It being a tad much with the bottom panel decorated that way (would look better with the stripes on just the sides).

    The new central light is definitely an improvement.

    I think I'm with Rekkert here that the best idea is to go with the angled lines that were present on the Brattain and Sutherland bridges.

    Yup, as I said - they'd need a bit of rework to get them to gel with the lower ones... It's a lot simpler to swap them out.

    ETA: That said, I did a quick photobash to illustrate what a difference the lower panels being blank makes. What do you guys think?

    Much better!

    OK we can proceed with the next stuff. Did you get my suggestion for the standing consoles? (Starscream approved of 'em.

    Furthermore, clear the upper part of that thingamagig above the viewer of its LCARS: I'd like the whole thing to be a condition red flasher a la BOBW II.

    Those new proposed stands would be based off of a thicker version of playground parallel bars like I posted earlier, though it would be a single, thicker bar stand with the console on top of it.
