Main Mission

Desk layout

There are 6 desks in a "U" shape, plus (from Missing Link) Kano's desk. The desks and Sorella lamps needed electrical cables, which were sometimes visible crossing the floor.


Breakaway: Main Mission is in the early layout with steps to the viewports (there is a slight change in Ring Around The Moon; the new layout is in Earthbound).

Often wires are seen running on the floor between desks.

Collision Course

The desks move forwards and backwards in each episode, and sometimes foreground desks even disappear for particular shots.

Despite the electronics, staff frequently drink coffee at their desks.
