Re: Why was their not a navigation station?

The nav station seems to have been rendered obsolete by the 24th century. Remember that on the Enterprise D, the 2 forward stations were Helm and Con. Voyager's bridge design had the Con station in the rear, on the opposite side with Security.
Since the computer was sophisticated enough that it could pilot the ship on auto, the advancements made by Ent D's time made it unnecessary.
As for the much earlier NX-01, you could hand wave it away as the ship being smaller and with the slower engines, technobabble, etc...
