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

If there are scenes of people just coming into quarters uninvited, that's just dramatic shorthand to get the scene moving. You can see the same thing on countless sitcoms -- nobody in sitcoms ever seems to lock their front door, because going through the business of knocking and giving permission and opening the door would throw off the comic timing so it's better just to have the wacky neighbor barge in on cue.
The notable exception of one Doctor Sheldon Cooper notwithstanding of course.
