I know theres been a few threads about this bridge offering image previews, one of them was mine.
Decided to upload a 2 and a half minute video tour tho, if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a 2:30 video is worth... *counts 30 frames per second*... oh you get the idea.
That room under the bridge needs some chairs. At least 4 for the people using the table consoles. I love that room though. I imagine it as a room where people on the ship give combat intel to the ground teams.
Oh, and thanks for making the video! Can you post a screenshot of the light that you're talking about?
Was already working on it, added it to the other images I took from my other thread, which makes 15 images alltogether. Second last image is the star light at the top... really just a circular light to be honest but the hull sections around it make it look nice.
Also interesting to note is that tiny text on the consoles... actual real readable text, tho in most cases backwards or flipped horizontally or verrtically or upsidedown, etc, apparently the holographic consoles arn't working correctly, or Cryptic didn't expect us to get close enough to read them.
It's like an Excomp's POV for the tour. Kinda fun when you imagine that.
So here's my critique of the bridge:
I like the architecture and textures. They're very nice and work well.
I'm not a fan of the size of the bridge. It suffers from the same problem I have with a lot of the KDF bridges. Some of your crew are so far away and hidden you forget they're even on your bridge at times. I'd be walking around my KDF bridge and be like "Oh hey HEY! How you doing Mr. Science BOFF! I forgot you were over here. Long time no see. How's things?"
That front part of the bridge, down the stairs and tucked away from view, can create that issue here. You compare that to the "snug" or "cozy" feeling of say the Galaxy bridge or the TOS Bridge, where everyone's just in view and a mere direct order away from you in the captain's chair.
I'd love to see the same "style" of bridge done on a smaller scale for a different ship. I'd probably be a huge fan of it at that point.
I have a question ... does the transporter pad serve as the turbolift or is there a turbolift behind that red door off to the left?
