Re: Another fan attempt at TOS deck plans

I wonder if botany would have its own lab counted among those fourteen, or if the botanical research would be attached to the botanical garden section and perhaps have a space there, rather than a dedicated full lab?

Hmm, Sulu was working in what looked like a Botanical Lab in one episode, but it didn't look too sophisticated, I'm not sure if it was a full lab or just one of a couple of dedicated Botanical rooms.

Re: Another fan attempt at TOS deck plans

Some of those labs could be the size or a large broom closet, so having fourteen science labs isn't necessarily as intimidating as it might appear.

Re: Another fan attempt at TOS deck plans

I have always wondered in a time when there are countless member races and worlds in the federation, how do you define Xenobiology? I would hazard that by trek times there would just be Biology which would encompass all of life sciences.

Therorhetical biological science. Things which are an extension of what biology would potentially encompass.

Or, more simply, non-Federation member biological science.

Re: Another fan attempt at TOS deck plans

While I'm sure that there are a few specialty laboratories on board, I would think that most fall into a few broad categories with equipment that might be utilized across disciplines. And as not all science is done in the laboratory (not even all laboratory science is done in laboratories), I would think that mission specialists would be given cabins with offices so that they could continue their research while the laboratories are repurposed for another team.

Part of the reason for the science officer to be part of the command staff would be that they are the final word on resource allocation.

It should be noted that while most episodes started out with visiting some unextraordinary planet or charting some uninteresting part of space (with most of the bridge crew seeming bored), throughout the rest of the ship you most likely had quite a few dozen people all fighting to get access to the resources they needed for their studies. And the only person on the bridge who would be fully aware of this would be Spock.

As for where most of these laboratories would end up in my layout... I would think that ring 0 of deck 4, 5 (for those laboratories in sickbay) and 6, and parts of the aft quadrants of ring 1 on deck 5. I think the guest accommodation for mission specialists would also have to be in ring 1 of deck 4 and 6, and the forward quadrants of ring 1 on deck 5 (so that their cabin office space wouldn't be too far way from where they work).

Well, it's only cause I didn't get the Saturday paper...
