Main Bridge

The Main Bridge of the Bismarck Class Light Battleship is its central hub during times of normal oeprations. It is a long room, consisting of two seperate parts. In the Main Bridge area, the Captain's chair is the central feature. Around the central chair are other stations including operations, communications and tactical. At the fore is the pilot's semi-circular set of consoles, and along the front wall are windows with a holographic display web installed in the struts, to zoom in on far away objects or focus on certain visuals. One door at the rear of the bridge leads to an elevator

Over to the Captain's left is the Plot Room, which contains a tactical display screen (a transparent glass chart overlaid with computer lines and symbols to show borders and ships) and "tactical table," (slang: TacTable) a circular table from which the Captain can command the battle. Above the table a holoimage of the battle situation can be displayed in three dimensions, supplementing the tactical display screen which also shows the status of other vessels. Six crewmembers man the Plot Room in times of battle, only two when the vessel is at normal operations.
