^ Ah, got you.
I guess what I'm getting at also is that every time I saw Tom slide back and forth, it drew a red circle in my brain around the fact that there wasn't someone else sitting beside him. In designing the Voyager
bridge set, they put something in front of the captain that resembled the TOS helm/nav desk, but they kept to having only one person behind it, like in TNG, but manning all that.
That seemed a little strange to me.
