I'm kinda curious about this, I don't see any real shots of the Oddy bridge on Trekcore and the ZIP file references here appears to be a broken link; can someone re-upload it? I want to see what you're referring to with the talk of the forward stations here.

I usually like to add to the myth. You know how people have said that Carriers are like cities at sea. They are...

only the city in question?

I read something where Probert had designed the E-D to hold 4,000 crew, but due to budgetary reasons and limited funds for background extras, Gene R. said the ship only had a crew of 1,000.

Air date for "The Jem'Hadar" was 12 June (1994). Generations was shooting from 24 March - 9 June. I would imagine the brigde destruction was filmed last or near the end of the shoot. I'm too lazy to look up the exact shooting dates for the Jem'Hadar now, but the point is: why didn't they use that set?

Shatner's hairpiece had gotten loose and no one dared approach it's chosen nesting ground- the bridge set.
Eventually they managed to restrain the creature, sadly it ate William Shatner's neck before the tranks took effect.
Look at those Priceline commercials if yuo dont believe me- his neck is just...gone.

His head is held onto his torso via stitches and double-stick tape.

Probably because the air date of the TNG finale "All Good Things ..." was late May 1994, meaning "The Jem'Hadar" was shooting concurrently or near-concurrently to the TNG finale, and so far as I know they pretty much went rip-roaring right to the movie stuff after that.

Perhaps on some idle week when TNG had a heavy location show they could've used the bridge set extensively and maybe even done the same sort of pyrotechnics the Odyssey bridge received, but TNG's bridge-heavy (and even modified-bridge-heavy) finale? I'm guessing not.

Chances are then that the Odyssey's scenes were filmed on the Generations bridge but in close-up to either conceal Saucer-crash damage or to keep secret the Generations bridge mods (extra consoles etc.).

But it was not and what we saw indicates they used the swing bridge set previously dressed as the Nebbie class Prometheus bridge.

They used the battle bridge, the same set that was used for Sisko's Saratoga in the pilot episode.

I've come a long way for the power of Genesis, and what do I find? A Square Pegs reject, another actress playing Saavik, and Leonard Nimoy's stand-in.

Which was later dressed as the Prometheus bridge.
