Re: Visual Proof a Resdesign is a good thing

It could be that in certain emergency situations, say loss of contact with the main computer, all ship's gravity systems automatically revert to a default 1G setting. This gets us turbo-shafts that work the way we'd expect them too most of the time, but a plausible scenario for gravity (and air) in the shaft in Disaster. and any other time we want it.

In Trek V the gravity may have been turned on simply as part of whatever maintenance was being performed at the time.
