Another thing that irritates me about TNG is synthehol and the almost sneery attitude that people have to alcohol.
If you came from a family of abusive alcoholics, you would find TNG's "sneery" attitude quite correct. Despite the fact that their attitude wasn't "sneery" at all.
No disrespect intended, but if you came from a family of abusive alcoholics and it was 1920, you probably would have thought the Eighteenth Amendment was a wonderful idea. It wasn't.

Turbolifts do take up space, but so does everything else. Space is not at a premium on a starship, there's plenty of extra room.
Space is at a premium on any enclosed vessel that has to support X number of human (or humanoid) beings within a finite volume, whether it's an aircraft carrier, a submarine, or a starship.
