I'm pretty sure those lifts work on electricity.
Your point? Lots of electrical systems still worked on the ship. Which ones were out was a function of plot and dramatic necessity, more than any plausible sense of how to wire up a starship. That's just par for the course in Star Trek.
What a thrilling scene that would have been. The "waiting in the escalator" scene.
Where might I have agreed with that sentiment?

It is true, though, that a lot of time is spent running through the ship. It's more dramatic than riding a turbolift
