Re: the ready room...

They actually only had 79 episodes of TOS, as opposed to 7 seasons of TNG, DS9, and VOY. I'd imagine there were at least 79 episodes of each of these that didn't show the ready room. As far as I'm concerned, there was one on Kirk's Enterprise, but we just never saw him use it.
Just like they never showed Kirk take a dump, but I'm sure he did at some point during that five-year mission.

Re: the ready room...

We did ultimately see a "Captain's Ready Room" on the 1701. Kirk, Spock and McCoy went there to have an exposition-fest during TMP. It happens to be at the aft of Deck 2.

No, that's not a "ready room". That's the officer's lounge, and it's on the refit, not the original TOS ship [http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Cons...cers.27_lounge].

Very true, but Kirk did have a "Office" connected to his quarters that we saw him use like a Ready Room in both TMP and TWOK!

Just like Pike had a cabin with a Ready Room like location and features in "The Cage"

I do agree that the production, real-world explanation is that the studio made Enterprise way too much like Next Generation, DS9 & Voyager.

But an in-universe explanation may be that the original Connie design had a combined Ready Room/Captain's Quarters directly under the bridge. But later the Captain's quarters were moved down into the saucer - maybe because that space was needed - and there was no room left for a Ready Room. (And in TOS and in the follow-up movies, Kirk still had a small office space in his quarters...they just were away from the Bridge.)

Now, big question is why, in-universe, doesn't the nuKirk have a Ready Room - where there *is* plenty of space for one!? (I'm gonna say that he probably does, we just never see it, as nuTrek is a less "talky" version of Trek...more action-oriented, less time to sit around and have a chat. That, and they seem to have Transwarp or Slipstream drive, as fast as they get around the Galaxy...that, and turbo-turbolifts that can get you ANYWHERE on the ship in *seconds*...)
