"Ten Forward" wasn't considered to be on the ship before the end of Season One and Andrew Probert's departure.
Here is a link
how he felt about the addition of "Ten Forward" on the ship that's essentially his design and creation (however, read the answer
to question # 23 at your own risk
! I wasn't aware of the "problem" before I read his interview, one of the rare cases where I'd agree that ignorance would have been bliss).
Sure what Probert's plans were don't line up with what we know but what goes on behind the camera is different than what is going on "in" the camera. Just because Probert didn't intend for 10-Fwd to be there doesn't mean it wasn't there before it was there.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
