Re: Do turbolifts have any sense?

@ solariabsg25

There was apparently also turbo lift failure below Deck 3 in "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield", forcing Lokai & Bele to make their way down to Deck 5 (at least) by using (unseen) stairways.

I have to concur with Timo. A call to battlestations should restrict the use of turbo lifts to specialists that need longer ways to travel. Probably the crew quarters are arranged in such a fashion that people can reach their duty stations within the minute.

And during the call to abandon the ship it would also seem wise that all crew members know how to get to their designated evacuation transporters without the need of turbo lifts. After all, these might be among the first things to fail during an emergency.
