technology for transparency

One of the things I LOVE from a certain kind of sci fi tv show is the “all the internal bits of advanced technologies are transparent glass sheets and crystals with geometric patterns on them” trope

all i can think of that fits this right now is star trek and stargate, but goddamn look at this stuff!

star trek deep space 9:

stargate sg-1:

stargate atlantis:

It’s just a really cool style that’s simultaneously hilarious and silly
