What appeared on screen was influenced by the idea that each ship had its own patch. Which was a commonly held idea for decades.
By some perhaps, but that "held idea" is not backed up by on screen evidence.
What's on screen is the result of the folks producing the show making a decision. Either to fudge it by crafting shots that obscured the delta or creating new patches. Those are ideas that the on screen evidence supports.
