Looking Great!  Taps into that glorious 'space age' feel to the late 1950s through the 1960s.  The future looked brighter then.  Now that I am in the future (of yesterday) it all seems bland to me.  I think nostalgia can work both ways.  The nostalgia for the past as well as for the future, a future that never came to be.

Thanks!  It does kind of give that vibe off doesn't it. This has been a fun nostalgia trip modeling up this bridge.  And given me a new appreciation for buttons. ;)

I like the old fashioned mechanical buttons instead of touch pads like on a smartphone.  ST 6 (ST VI) had those old type buttons on the main helm and navigation stations of Enterprise.  Those Okudagrams were misplaced to me in ST 5 and when they made ST 6, I liked they kinda retconned the 5 bridge.  The ST 5 bridge was very nice but too clean and too soon to be like that compared to TNG.  excelsior on the other hand was more upgraded than ENT-A and it should be as a whole new approach to ship design.

Looking over the TMP bridge consoles, and I mean really looking at them, it's kind of amazing to me how many 'buttons' they have there that aren't really buttons at all, but kind of the precursor to the backlit TNG screens. I'm doing them up as buttons, but almost flush to the console as I'm re-doing them. 

I didn't mind the push buttons, but I wish they'd gone a bit less after-market with them and didn't pull so many parts from stereo systems.
