Does Pike's Enterprise have a turbolift funhouse?

    Between Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, it seems that the Enterprise has undergone several subtle but noticeable changes. For example, the bridge appears to be a bit smaller, the corridor around the bridge looks to have been removed, and the set decorator with the neon fetish has apparently been discharged from their duties.

    We know that, as of Discovery and Short Treks, Enterprise was blessed with both a Shuttlebay of Infinite Holding and a Turbolift Funhouse. Do we have any indication that either of these rather ignominious features have been removed as of Strange New Worlds? What other small but meaningful repairs to the canon may have taken place that I've overlooked?

    "Shuttlebay of Infinite Holding".... :guffaw::guffaw::guffaw: that sounds like a Dungeons & Dragons magical item like the Pouch Of Holding™

    The outer corridor around the bridge seems to have been converted on one side into a ready room compartment.

    To answer the OP No.

    Why?

    To answer the OP, yes. We saw it in Short Treks "Q&A". So it's there!

    We just may never see it again. I'm sure the shuttlebay will always fit whatever the current episode needs into it, as they all have.

    I'm pretty sure you must have overlooked that Short Trek episode.

    It also featured Spock singing Gilbert & Sullivan and yukking it up with Number One in a stranded elevator.

    You didn't miss much.

    I thought the turbolift funhouse was on Discovery not the Enteprise. At any rate it was one of the stupidest things I have ever seen in a starship on star trek. It definitely beats out the stupid level number of TFF...

    I just dont know what the prodcuers were thinking on that one....:rolleyes:

    Someone was definitely high when making that decision...

    No.

    I just see no evidence for it now so I will not look for it.

    They found it amusing and decided to leave it in. Because it's called humor and it isn't for everyone.

    I believe the phrase is "comedy is subjective." And in the eye of the beholder.

    Whether funny or stupid, it fits right in with Star Trek.

    Both ships had turbolift funhouses in the Discovery era.

    The Paramount+ app won't let me screenshot it, but if you pull up the Short Treks episode "Q&A," you can see Enterprise's turbolift funhouse starting at the 2:13 mark. Somehow, it looks even more massive than Discovery's.

    I totally agree that it's one of the most asinine design decisions I've seen in any episode of any series, and unless Gallifrey has joined the Federation, entirely impossible to exist.

    While we're on the topic of that episode, we also had some light vandalization of Mister Spock in the form of him engaging in Elevator Karaoke while grinning like a maniac, so there's that, too.

    Yeah, it was pretty evident, prior to Strange New Worlds, that this production gaffe screenshot represented the sum total of The Original Series and Spock in particular with which the writers were familiar.

    Hardly a gaffe given it was a part of the episode as filmed.
