And the blue was the trait of 2409.
But anyhow, Taco recently posted how he would like to redo ESD interior. Perhaps if he gets the green light, he might see this and keep that in mind.
I feel like the basic look of Club 47 isn't a bad nod to the disco bar where McCoy was but the big thing I see is that Starfleet installations tend to be... homier looking.
Lose the gun metal and the blue and you have something Trekkier. The features are a bit overdesigned and look techno-organic/comic booky but I think the color scheme is more at fault.
If we're looking at a total makeover, I still submit that DS9 would benefit more. It could tie to a Nor fleet holding and/or an adventure zone makeover. Being cross-faction already means it benefits everyone. Being an IP location means it is more insulated from the "dinosaurs with laser cannons are not Trek" type complaints.
The downside is that it means some missions have to get revisited by the content folks. The upside is that at least some of those can be incorporated into the zone, along with maybe some lost elements like the Fleet Action.
