Re: Who designed Janeways ready room?

Thematically, sure, but it's not the same set. The Defiant bridge was used for alien ships on Enterprise from time to time, though.

As for why Janeway's ready room was so big, the simplest answer would be symmetry. It was opposite the briefing room, so it ended up being the same size. The briefing room seems small, though, thanks to the giant table filling all the space.

IIRC, the only time ALL-NEW sets were built was for ENT. Since the TNG/VOY sets were in continuous use from 1987 - 2001, the soundstage was in terrible shape and they had to completely gut it and throw everything away. Nothing was recycled for the ENT sets (except perhaps props or set dressings).

That's right. In the TNG companinon under the Generations section, it says that the Enterprise-D sets were "retained and refurbished for Voyager", clearly indicating that those sets used to be the Enterprise-D, plus, if you look at both the cooridors and Janeway's Quarters, you can clearly see they used to be the Enterprise-D hallways and Picard's quarters with a new paint job and redecoration.

Why in the world is the Captains Ready Room on Voyager so damn big? What did she need all that room for? That seems like a waste of resources IMO. I just don't see the point for it.

I think because they were originaly going to cast Delta Burke in the roll

Funny how the definition of 'small' changes over time. Wasn't Voyager more or less the same size as Kirk's Enterprise? (Which itself was roughly the size of a US supercarrier...)

The real reason sets are so large is that it makes it easier to set up cameras inside them.

Re: Who designed Janeways ready room?

^Well compared to a galaxy or even a sovereign, Voyager is a relatively small ship.

What's funnier is that I read somewhere (The TNG Tech Manual?) that officer's quarters had changed so much from TOS-->TNG that Captain Kirk's movie quarters became the junior officer's quarters board the Enterprise-D.
