This section is dedicated to the study, discussion and to the accurate representation of the TOS Bridge Science Station. Please feel free to post your own
images!!! All displays will be counted from the turbolift so stations on either side of the elevator will be labeled backwards. To avoid confusion all panels
will be referenced as show below:Image

NOTE:  The Morie panel is not yet complete but I have posted a test graphic.






More to come

Notice on Sci-5 that the display itself was turned upside down (flipped around 180 degrees) for the second and third season. I'm sure that it was most likely
taken out for some sort of maintenance between
seasons and the unit was simply put back in upside down.

As you can see the three vertical lights (which on Sci 5 are only on one side) in the "Wink of an Eye" (3rd Season) photo are on the right-hand side
and they appear on the left side in "The Corbomite Maneuver" (1st Season) photo.

This is the display for Science-1. This display is unique for the science station in that is the only display (other than the morie) that has different shapes other than the standard rectangles that we see all over the bridge. When I was a kid I always thought that the upper right corner looked like a top view of the enterprise when the group of white lights was illuminated.  This sequence is very slow.

Here is a good view from "The Tholian Web" of all of the right-side displays although not much of this panel is illuminated

Science-2 is one of a grouping of three displays that at first glance appear to be the same. They all have the standard rectangular graphic that we see throughout the bridge and the colors are all the same; yellow on the top, green in the middle and red at the bottom of the graphic. Science-2 differs because it is wider than the other two adjacent similar displays and it also has a row on the right side of longer rectangles than are seen in the other displays.  The sequence on this display is VERY slow.

Science-7 should look familiar even to the casual TOS viewer. This display is located right behind Spocks hooded viewer and saw a ton of screen time. Since Spock was one of the main characters and he and his station got plenty of screen time; you would think that we get great documentation of this display but in truth we do not. That darn viewer of Spock's blocks a complete view of this display most of the time. Early on in the series the hooded viewer was not there so it can be seen however this sequence is from the second season episode "The Doomsday Machine." Early on in the series things were not quite settled so I usually try to document after mid first season. They were always tweaking stuff on the bridge throughout the series but particularly in the first part of the first season.

Image
This display was auctioned off during the Bob Justman PIH auction and is one of the few surviving displays from the original bridge set.  Note: this is not the entire sequence but a representation of part of a sequence.  See the Science-7 thread for more detail here:http://tosgraphics.yuku.com/topic/401/S ... le-Display 
This is a typical view of Science-7!  Yes, it's hard to see!!

This cap from "The Galileo Seven" shows great color on Science-7.  So many times the color was washed out on film on these displays that it at times makes it hard to determine the actual color.  Pictures like this really help.
Image

This cap is part of a great pan shot that goes from Science-7 around to Comm-1 and is from the first season episode "This Side of Paradise."

Here is an example of how they used reverse shots to minimize the camera set-ups. Here we have Sulu sitting at the helm turned to look behind him.  If you look behind him you will see the science station; 180 degrees from where is should be in this shot from "Turnabout Intruder."  Turnabout indeed!!!

I have done all of the control panels from each season and some from "WNMHGB" and will post them eventually. Here is the first season version of the "Science-1" control panel with the verbiage that you mentioned (which is the correct wording)

This is a series of screen grabs from Season 3's "Let This Be Your Last Battlefield".
I am posting these screen grabs from a TOS-R airing of the episode on BBC America.

Spock is sitting at the Library Computer Station with Sci-5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 visible behind Nimoy.

In the Season 3 episode, "Let This Be Your Last Battlefield", as aired on BBC America in the past months.
There is a panning closeup of Sci-5's blinking lights during the sequence where Captain Kirk initiates the destruct sequence.

If you look closely at the 3 vertical bar lights on the right side of the Sci-5 panel, my screen grab has some pixelation artifact which is resulting from my computer's own encoding process.

The point here is to get a screen grab for color comparison.  I will not sample the color in the area of the erroneous pixelation which is artifact.

Note also that the lower of the two photos appears have a very similar match to Feek's Science-5 GIF image layer 1.

Here is the same frame from the blu-rays.  Interesting to see all of the dirt and grime on the display.
