Re: doors to quarters have no locks / crew have no expectation of priv

Yes... if the doors were locked, Lenny & Squiggy would not be able to barge in unexpectedly on Beverly & Deanna.....

Perhaps the door mechanism can be set so that the combadges of close friends are allowed to enter freely, if the crew member is in a gregarious mood. In a more solitary mood, the door setting can be set accordingly. As Christopher pointed out, the need to move the action along smoothly seems like the logical real world explanation.
