No, looking at a monitor showing a mountain, or employing a holodeck, is hardly the same as actually traveling to a mountain, and perhap even climbing it.

The only shame a great explorer would feel is that someone in the future might think that it's all the same.

By the example of the shows, the ships may be able to clean themselves to an limited extent, but are incapable of maintaining and repairing themselves.
