The Main Bridge of the DeGaulle class carrier is its central hub during times of normal operations. It is a long room, consisting of two separate 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 a station behind the Captain stands the Flight Relay Officer, who relays the Captain's orders between Flight Control and the Main Bridge when he is on the bridge. 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 holographic image 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.
A circular room with a main table at the centre, much like the Plot Room. The screen on the aft wall displays the status of all of the ship's fighters when they have been deployed into combat. The central table displays a holographic projection of the battle, whilst the fore wall consists of the same holographic floor-to ceiling windows as the main bridge, allowing for an real view of the ensuing combat. Around the Flight Table there are other, free-standing consoles all facing towards it. A Squadron Leader, permanently assigned to Flight Control, coordinates the battle, and the Captain may also be present.
