Who designed Janeways ready room?
 
Why in the world is the Captains Ready Room on Voyager so damn big? What did she need all that room for? That seems like a waste of resources IMO. I just don't see the point for it.

It was very extravagant for a small ship, but I guess they wanted the captain to have a good place to relax on those very short 6 week missions.

It was large enough to have me wonder if it was part of the Captains yacht.

That was one of the ongoing inside jokes on Voyager. The EMH & Janeway have said in passing about the bridge: "It's much bigger than I thought". :lol:

On the technical side, I think it has to do with the type of ship Voyager is. It's a scout ship, notice how it has no labs, no areas for botany or studies of any kind. All Voyager has, is a bridge, sickbay, engineering and cargo bays. Most of the ships primary functions would take place on the bridge. Seeing as how is was a scout ship designed for deep space, Janeway and her crew would be out of range of other ships for long periods of time. Her ready room was designed to be her private oasis. A place that was multi-functional for not only work but relaxation as well.

Real reason: it's a redress of a TNG set.

The same reason Janeway had a bathtub and a private dining room?

:)

Like I've said, the writers went out of their way to emphasize the idea of a feminine captain...by making her a spoiled rotten one.

I'm sure she was gracious enough to offer it up for floor berthing room when decks had to be evacuated, though. It or her very expansive quarters.

Isn't that what your quarters are for??? :vulcan:

I just want to know where the hell that other door went. :(

The corridor leading to the turbolift behind Tuvok's station. I think they only used it a few times in Season 1.

I think the ship will have Science and Engineering labs, as well as labs for Botany etc. We have seen at least two labs seen on the ship in different episodes and the ship did have a Hydroponics bay. If they didn't have labs where would you put the Science and Operations crewman on duty when there not in either Engineering or on the Bridge Science station (of which there is opnly one)?

What science crewmen? The EMH & Wildman were two of the few "blue" suits we saw on Voyager. Voyagers crew was all gold or red suits because the ship was for scouting & combat, not science exploration.

People have sewing rooms & mini offices in their homes for relaxation. Remember seeing Janeway painting, writing and having coffee while looking out the window of her ready room, Picard often sat reading a book in his. Why else would the also be a sofa in there? It also keeps the captain close their post because techincally their duty shift never ends. A captain like a doctor, is always on call.

Where do you think the Delaney sisters worked? They were assigned to Stellar Cartography.

We saw at least a dozen blue shirts - they must have worked somewhere, even if it was a shared lab.

In fact, screencaps from Demon show that blue shirts make up at least a third of the crew.

A dozen?

12 blue shirts out of a crew of 150 and that's supposed to tip the scales? The major majority of the crew were still gold & red uniforms, still making the minority blue uniforms.

Re: Who designed Janeways ready room?
 
Yes, but they will still need places to work, which was the initial point of the conversation.

You can't expect a dozen crewmembers to work from their quarters, which would have been shared as junior officers.

I see you also ignored the reference to the screencaps which show considerably more than a dozen.
