Re: The characters and universe post-TOS

during the TOS, it would be safe to say the "connies" were each at different points of their 5-year missions (no one ever said they were all launched at the same time), so ships could return to the shipyards, or spacedock whenever necessary for technological improvements.
Kirk's ship was refitted at Earth; perhaps that was the only place capable of anything of the magnitude? Significantly, none of the TOS ships was ever indicated to have been to the 23rd century Earth either during the adventures or even at any previous timepoint (not even in connection with adventures involving Earth such as "Tomorrow is Yesterday" or "City on the Edge of Forever"). Obsolescence might have plagued the entire frontier fleet as a phenomenon.

Then, the Enterprise had its engineering section remodeled after the events of season 1
Or we just started seeing a different set of rooms and angles out of the maze-like, at least fifty-room whole.
