In a fit of extreme boredom I tried to draw up what the Ent-(-A) bridge looks like from overhead. Exact position of consoles is a little screwy in more than a few places and there's a bit of guesswork regarding step placement in the center of the bridge. But I think it's a good starting point to understanding the layout of the thing.

Proof positive why Tom isn't a draftsman

Any comments?

Very nice!

Is that an airlock behind the bridge -- ?

And, er, oh yes: I rather disagree. You are a draftsman!

Funny, I don't remember there being forward-facing consoles on the port and starboard sides of the Pre-E bridge...

Also I think the front of the bridge is truncated somewhat. I really didn't like the Sovereign bridge in this respect (everything just sorta stopped at the con/ops consoles, and there's this huge empty space until you get to the viewer). I hope there's something in front of Mayweather's station to fill in the gap.

Mark: Sato's Comm Console is the one to port. I'm assuming there's a comparable one to starboard.

(note the end of the science station's railing behind her)

So there are dragons on the bridge? Fascinating concept...

That's actually an excellent diagram. But I do think that there has to be something in the forward part of the bridge. It would be boring and an inefficient use of space to just sport nothing there. Maybe there are minor stations and displays flanking the main viewer? It's just a thought.

Heh... I didn't notice the grenade until now.

Anyway, after reviewing the ET Online clip again I 've tweaked the stairs a bit. Clearly there's gotta be something below and ahead of Mayweather's console that's worth walking to...
