Re: Deck Plans V: The Not-So-Final Go Around

^It may have worked with the 203-person crew in the Pike years 9as long as it's still a 947-foot-long ship).

I think it's nuts, though, to put a fully functional bathroom in every quarters. Give everybody a dorm-sized room, and put a public lavatory at the end of every other corridor. Each crew section could have a shower room, and the crew a shower schedule.

Re: Deck Plans V: The Not-So-Final Go Around

A common bathroom for every two cabins should be fine, as well as avoiding the spectacle of crewmen (and more importantly, crewwomen) traipsing through the corridors in towels in bathrobes (or less, in the case of the less inhibited personnel and/or VIPs).

Being caught in the head during a red alert is one thing. Being caught in the head that's down the hall from your quarters, and your uniform, is another.

Moving back to the "how many people per cabin" matter, I'm thinking the bulk of Security, being the equivelent of Marines on a Navy vessel, would fall under the same requirements as I laid out for the engineering staff, in not moreso.

So, I guess I need to break down the organization of the onboard security detail, and set up the quarters appropriately.

The more you dig, the more work there is to do...

Re: Deck Plans V: The Not-So-Final Go Around

Nothing wrong with the spectacle of barely-clad crewwomen traipsing the halls .

Just for reasons of practicality, a "dormlike" arrangement makes sense to contain the amount of space needed to house the crew, particularly the enlisted or junior crew. Heck, the curved layout even makes it easy, at least as one is closer to the center, to arrange multiple cabins so that they share a single bath/restroom facility that sits inside the curve, allowing access from all the connected cabins without even needing to go down a hallway to reach it; they just have inner doors that connect to the shared facilities. In fact, it should be possible to cluster cabins and bathrooms pretty much anywhere in the ship; just place the facilities in the center of a block of 4, 6, whatever dorm rooms.

At any rate, the ship needs to have public facilities throughout - I can't believe that the crew would have to go all the way back to their quarters to use the restroom, or ask to use someone else's bathroom .

Re: Deck Plans V: The Not-So-Final Go Around

True, some "public" facilities would seem to be warranted.

It always comes back to the old question of where the toilets were on the Enterprise....

Present day Navy vessels generally get a bit more warning than a starship gets when a Romulan warbird decloaks off the starboard bow.

Besides, if the toilet situation can be improved, why not do it? After all, this is Starfleet we're talking about.

The Enterprise has the best damn toilets in the fleet! Scotty personally spit-shines each one! No mold on this ship, no sir.

(Al Bundy voice) Not just any toilets, Fergusons. The king of bowls. The Stradivarious of toilets. My dad can play one like a violin. No designer colors or weak, little apologetic flushing noises. These only come in white, and when you flush them, BA-WOOSH!. Now, that's a mans flush. A Ferguson says, "I'm a toilet. Sit down and give me your best shot."


Oh, I am so getting banned for that.

EXT - ENTERPRISE IN SPACE

We hear the loud, manly flush of a toilet, followed by the dimming of the warp nacelles.

Oh, yeah!

I would love to see someone do a little 15-20 second video of that! Now that's a viral video waiting to happen!

Re: Deck Plans V: The Not-So-Final Go Around

In other news, I managed to take advantage of Tower Records' liquidation sale and pick up one of the new bronze handled phasers at 20% off, then later found a TOS 2nd Season DVD set at GameStop for less than $40.

Besides, we've got new folks poking around these days, so all this is new to them.

Nice work......I was wondering where the phasers really were, and now I know!

Re: Deck Plans V: The Not-So-Final Go Around

And the best part is, the remastered episodes haven't contradicted me, at least when it comes to the phasers.

The photon torpedoes, that's another question, but I may just ignore that problem entirely, just to be annoying.
