    Thank you very much SnowCrash!

    I've started working on the LCARS today. Also, I've made the lights half as much bright as they were before, in order to make the bridge more uniformly light and closer to the TNG brightness level.

    I'm just so happy right now. It's like a childhood memory brought to life, in HD. I want to step through the screen and wander around.

    Wow, I thought I was just about the only one who thought that! Happy to hear from a like mind

    While I would've preferred a completely new design, they made the older console layout look good and TNG enough for the Equinox and Prometheus IMO.
    The LCARS work was brilliant on them; you could see how much the technique has improved since the beginning of TNG - even for guest bridges like those. Shame DS9 didn't get the opportunity to use the set (or at least, I don't think they did? Someone correct me if I'm wrong!)

    However I agree 100% with the Enterprise-E, that bridge took so many elements from so many different eras (turbolifts from TMP, consoles from Ent-A, Light fixtures from Ent-B, details from the Ent-D) that even with the new chairs and central consoles, it lacks its own personality.
    Agreed. I don't understand either why they didn't even bother changing the design of the leather padded segments under the consoles - that and the lighting grills below, again, really stuck out like a sore thumb to me.

    I love the Ent-E, it's my favorite,
    This is definitely where we differ - I absolutely detest the Ent-E exterior. So much of it screams "throwback" out of some misplaced sense of nostalgia by Eaves (who admittedly was never a TNG viewer, let alone a fan). Such a wasted opportunity in that ship.

    I hate that bridge, even the layout is awful and hard to read. The colors are cool, that much I would give them. I would love to have seen a version more faithful to Eaves' original concept for that bridge, with more separated consoles, and a far more consistent design style.
    Definitely agreed on the layout. No ergonomics at all. Plus I've always been a little disappointed that they dropped the horseshoe rail, as I once read a report that they were keeping it (or an updated version) while FC was in production.

    That concept art I always liked (and the same for his work on the Ent-D bridge concepts for Gen), but I imagined the 'E' bridge concept in tones and colors more similar to Generations or maybe even TFF, rather than the over-bronzed, heavily decorated eyesore that we got in FC (what was up with all the black tape markings on everything?!). That thing looks more Ferengi than Federation! The low lighting level didn't help with the cluttered appearance, either, I think...

    That latest image is incredibly pretty! Wouldn't mind jumping in and having a 'play' on the consoles myself... Out of curiosity did you consider any alternate color schemes for the decor when you were thinking up the design?

    Looking great. I like the colors you picked for your LCARS.

    @BlueNeumann: wow, thank you very much, I'm happy that my work is able to give such a big emotional response.

    @Starscream: As for alternative colors, I originally intended the consoles and walls to be beige like on the Ent-D bridge, but then I saved that idea for another concept of mine.

    @evil_genius_180: Thanks mate!

    More work on the LCARS. I've finished the main Helm/Ops consoles, as well as the bottom part of the surrounding stations and started with several other details. Still a lot to do.

    That's getting near-perfect!

    Only one suggestion, if I may: Unless it's what you're aiming for anyway, the yellows on the LCARS look a little oversaturated in comparison to TNG, as per screencaps from TNG 'Brothers'. Image 074 (top-right) in particular nicely illustrates the shades and variations.

    Thanks!

    When I first started with the LCARS, the color was a lot more of a copy of the original colors from TNG. However, I didn't particularly liked how they looked with all the gray, so I changed them a bit (resembling more the LCARS from Parallels in the end).

    If you all think it's too bright, I'll change them, so please tell me what you think

    Other than that, I've finished with the Helm/Ops consoles, as well as the captain's chair and the standing consoles besides it. I've also laid out the remaining consoles, so I hope to be able to finish this by tomorrow.

    Ahh, that makes sense then - I did for a second think it looked much more like Parallels, but then you'd said early TNG was your aim so wasn't sure! Nice update
