Why is it called a "ready" room, anyway? Ready for what?
Another misapplication of naval terminology. A ready room is a room on an aircraft carrier where on-duty pilots stand by, ready to go to their planes. It's really his office of his sea (space) cabin, since it does feature a bed, even if he was never shown using it.

Likewise, the Captain's Yacht should have been the Captain's Gig.
