IMO something in the style of the C-store Oddy bridge, since that's more concurrent timeline-wise, but a little more compact and/or utilitarian looking, and with a darker scheme to go with the default hull scheme. Sort of the Intrepid to the Oddy's Galaxy, if that makes any sense.

What I've wanted to see for a long time in Trek, and I think this would be perfect for the Vesta, is a bridge with an Imax dome style viewscreen. Like Voyager's astrometrics lab display, but on the bridge.
I don't think the Promethus bridge it's right either - but what is? It doesn't have a dedicated bridge, many of the existing bridges 'feel' too large for it. (little wonder it looks outdated though - the TV series one was a re-dress of the Excelsior bridge used in 'Flashback' )

Switched to the San Fransico bridge from the Sovereign pack, which I slightly prefer (and it's more modern in STO terms) but it still feels a bit too big.

No, you're definably right: there is no current bridge that feels right for the Vesta. Either it's a half-decent style fit, but too big, or it's the right size, but the wrong style. That's what I was getting at by implication (guess I didn't make it clear enough).

But that plus the fact that it's actually three ships, and C-store ships to boot, means IMO it's actually pretty weird/glaring that it didn't get its own bridge pack. If the Vesta doesn't merit a bridge pack, or at lest one unique bridge, then WTF actually will?

And this is coming from someone who doesn't own a Vesta, so this isn't just a Vesta fanboys whining for more stuff. It just doesn't seem to make sense, even from the outside, and that doesn't bode well for future special ship releases.
