    Thanks for the comments, indeed it's feeling alive now!

    I thought the tactical console would be a pain in the back to texture because of its shape, so I wanted to do the LCARS for it as soon as possible to get them out of the way. I've also added some further details below it per BolianAdmiral's suggestion to make the area look less empty.

    The vertical panels are also done, inspired by the Voyager panels which use the whole vertical space, rather than the TNG ones which only use a small area when not in alert mode.

    We've talked with BolianAdmiral a lot about the LCARS and found the color combination he liked the most for this bridge, which is the late-TNG orange/purple combination, so now all LCARS use those colors.

    I've also changed the colors of the carpets to make them closer to the late-TNG carpets. We might change them completely after the LCARS are done, but for now, I wanted them to be as close as possible to the real deal.

    Ugh, I LOVE those Iso panels! Freakin' gorgeous! We just need that colour somewhere else in the bridge to balance it out, I think. But otherwise... love it.

    I love that you put an Isolinear access below the tactical console, excellent idea! (all Galaxy/Nebula bridges should have this setup IMO). The uplighters are looking nice too

    Although I'm not a fan of the purple/orangeLCARS in general, this instance sort of makes sense to me - partly because this was almost always the "go-to" palette for ships of the week on TNG! I do however think that maybe the vertical strips need to be shunted a bit more towards the orange/purple end of the LCARS, as they're currently a little overwhelming with that much mustard yellow in the mix.

    You know it's funny, but the decals on the doors almost look like they're from sorta pre-TNG from a distance, which is kinda neat since the Nebulas are supposedly a little older than the Galaxy-class...

    Curious to see how you'll set up the rear consoles, now!

    I love them too. That's part of why I wanted the small iso-chip unit inside the aft of the tactical support - because I felt it would help break up that wall of solid beige, plus add a splash more of that color scheme to an area that was previously devoid of it.

    I know, right? Me, too! That's a large part of why I wanted it included... I kept looking at that area, and thinking to myself how bare it looked, even on the Enterprise-D, and wanting to fill that empty space up with something practical, yet small. I figured this would be the perfect solution.

    In my personal head-canon, as of now it's always been there.

    I hope you're going to give the tactical position a stool? Otherwise the middle display will be mighty awkward...

    I just noticed the dark grill texture on the ceiling forward of the skylight Rekkert, awesome job!

    I've tried with all the colors of the set and the yellow is actually the most muted one, and we wanted to keep the colors the same as on the rest of the LCARS.

    Nope, just standard issue Starfleet pain relievers.

    One of the easiest textures to create for this bridge hahaha.

    I've done all the LCARS on the front part of the bridge, so the command stations for the XO/Specialist are done, as well as the viewscreen LCARS, and the isolinear scan on the middle of the wall racks. Only the back stations to go!

    Holy God, that looks awesome! I love the little Nebula graphics on the XO/Specialist stations!

    That last render is fantastic.

    I think I like this bridge better than the one from the TV show or the movie. You really put the best bits of every version of the bridge into one. I like the side displays, but you didn't clutter it up with extra chairs and consoles, like the "Yesterday's Enterprise" and "Generations" versions of the bridge. I like the isolinear holders, they add a lot of detail and color without going too much. The color scheme looks great, especially the addition of red with the door and console markings. And, lastly, I like that you added some bits from alternate versions of the bridge, such as the added bit on the tactical console and main viewer. Add it all together and it's really fantastic.

    Thank you SO much! When I first emailed Rekkert regarding this project, and my ideas for this bridge, decor-wise, I was honestly very afraid that it would end up looking "too busy". But I am VERY happy with how clean and uncluttered it ended up looking, and seeing feedback like yours really validates that the concept I had in my mind's eye was valid, and works.

    I keep telling Rekkert how thankful I am that he took this project on, and I can't say it enough... I get teary-eyed seeing the bridge I had in my mind for so many years come to life. This ship - the U.S.S. Quasar, is the main ship in the very first piece of Trek fanfic I wrote and posted on the Trek BBS, way back when, around 2003 or so, and I'm just awestruck seeing what a wonderful and PERFECT job Rekkert has done with it I've already told him that I am NOT joking - I plan to commission him to built the Quasar's Ready-Room, as well as the bridge of the U.S.S. Zodiac - a Cheyenne-Class ship from the same fanfic as the Quasar. I've already started designing the decor elements for the Quasar's Ready-Room.
