Another silly question, why is the USS Righteous bridge here rather than on your site? Unless you are planning on releasing it with the Excalibur bridges at the same time plus any other BobyE updates. Just an inquiry, I am sure you have your reasons.

I'm showing only the canon bridges.

Thanks, and you're welcome. ;D

Many things would not be possible without people contributing. I don't have the time to modify the bridge images, which requires a good deal of research and then still takes a couple of hours to draw. So I am grateful for BobyE's work.


I know that the Brattain and Sutherland bridges will not be easy due to their unusual arrangements, thank goodness there are screencaps available for research. The Lantree is quite a bit easier but I am still very happy with the work so far. Keep it up, EAS Team.

I wouldn't mind seeing one of the Odyssey's bridge, personally.

I have it on the list of bridges on page 1 of this thread along with others I have added as I have thought of them.

Another silly question, are you going to create a non canon bridge section for bridges like the USS Righteous or USS Excalibur?

No. But if it is accordingly fleshed out (description, history, etc.), it may qualify for the JoAT.

I am afraid my writing skills are lacking, although I am sure someone with exceptional skills can create the appropriate texts for the ships, beyond taking what is in the other wikis in which they are listed.

Thanks for the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-A bridge from Star Trek IV - The Voyage Home. You guys rock, especially Bernd, BobyE and all the staff.

I am still waiting on the list on page 1. I figure he will do them as time permits. Also, every time a new one is added, I check off the list. Bernd, BobyE and all the staff do a great job, one should not rush greatness.

Thanks for the USS Excelsior NX-2000 bridge from Star Trek III, very impressive work by BobyE again. Kudos to him and Bernd.

Yeah...I just looked at it. Good job!

 ;D

Though...for some reason...I always thought it was bigger than that.

Perhaps it looked bigger because it was so empty and with little detail?

Considering according to Memory Alpha and many other sources, the Excelsior bridge was not even a complete set, just the angles we saw. BobyE apparently used screen shots and conjecture to create the drawing we are seeing. Kudos and Bravo again. I look forward to more, whenever they happen.

Yeah, I thought that as well.  My first impression was that there should be more stations/chairs along the wall.

It's an impressive work none the less.

Very impressive...and I was actually thinking the same thing as well, Jimi.

I hope once BobyE is done with the Federation bridges, he might tackle the Klingon and Romulan variants like the Bounty, Klaa's ship, Chang's ship, Duras sisters and so forth. As usual it is wait and see. If I feel a need I can post a list similar to the one on page 1 of this thread.

Well, it says other galleries, so here's something non-bridge related...

Bernd, do you plan on eventually adding and replacing the images of various starships with the stuff from DrexFiles? I know you frequent the site from time to time, but It'd be nice to hear about it.

I am currently just replacing the side views in the database. I have not included the new views in the galleries. Perhaps Doug doesn't mind but I don't just want to rip them off.

I fail to see how he'd be upset, unless you removed the "Drex Files" tag he has on every image. ::)

I'd bet that if you asked him, he might do more than just give permission...;)

I love those bridge illustrations. That's why I love EAS to no end.

But I still disagree with many of his statements. Such as the NX-01.

At first though I did agree with him on the NX-01 being too much like the Akira class, but then I got to thinking about it and the real world example would be the flying wing. This was brought to my attention when I was watching the original War Of The Worlds movie. And then it dawned on me that that was a real world example of technology that had the same basic form but different tech from the prop engines to the jets of the 1950s to the Stealth bomber. And eventually the NX-01 design grew on me. But I still would've loved it if the Enterprise was a Daedalus class. Mostly because it seems to me that the Constitution class developed more directly from that design than the NX-01.

8One of the biggest things that I've never been able to understand about the NX-01 is the thing between the warp engines. It seems to me it's a poor placement because how would the crew have access to it for repairs? They would have to go through the warp engines for that.

However, I can't prove that now in hindsight because of the article that does use the same argument that i would've.

Things change. I'll never understand the attitude of Star Trek Fans who balk at any kind of change.

But I was highly disappointed at the people at Trek BBS who were ridiculing him as well. As Trek fans we should be above those kinds of petty differences because that was the true essence of Trek, was to rise above those petty differences and elt people be themselves.

QD, you might have opened a new thread. But let's keep the discussion here.

I am not opposed to change, I just dislike change that happens retroactively, in a way that it does not improve the consistency (as in TOS Remastered) but worsens it. Consistency, just like the prevailing optimism of the franchise, is one of Trek's most valuable assets, and this was jeopardized in Star Trek Enterprise and was downright abandoned in the reboot movie.

And to mention only two examples, the use of the basic Akira design on behalf of the boss who liked that 24th century ship was just as conscious a mistake as was the upscaling of the New Enterprise to allow just one particular scene -- both for no good reason.

The difference between me and the fans who chime in in anti-EAS threads is that I am tolerant, and that I never insult other fans for their readiness to accept changes as silly as these are in my firm opinion. I can understand if someone sees Trek as entertainment that does not hold up to closer examination. But once I have decided to care about it, I would not be content with saying "So this is the list of everything that is different now. Who cares?". Some people even accused me of compiling this list in the first place as if the new film were a holy cow.

I respect your view and thanks for your understanding!
