@Lord Garth and @fireproof78 both have a truth identified here.
I thought the Enterprise had multiple sickbays, or at least a large sickbay complex the parts we saw on the TV shows were only a small fraction of.
That depends on which Enterprise one is discussing.
Obviously the TNG one was massive compared to TOS, just because of the ship scales and the number of people needed to be treated on a daily basis.
GOOGLE provides this pictorial comparison for those interested.
These are mostly Trek Fan depictions, but considering our persnickety attention to minute detail, they are probable accurate down to the square inch.
IIRC, the FJ blueprints did show multiple sickbays and multiple transporters and even multiple bridges, for that matter, but is considered non-canon at worst, soft-canon at best. We can assume that the larger Enterprises had redundant services like this, but real-world budget limitations forced them to use the same set for all of them. TOS did make reference to transporter room numbers, and there is canonical evidence that there were two engineering rooms, one in the PH, behind the impulse engines & one in the SH behind the shuttle bay, controlling the warp engine systems.
The Discovery diagrams also show multiple sickbays IIRC.
So that's where Disco's CMO has been hiding.
With the whole turbolift funhouse taking up most of the ship's internal space, one wonders how they have enough room for such frivolities like multiple sickbays!
The Enterprise D supposedly does, though I don't think that's ever been reflected onscreen. The closest we get is seeing sickbay evacuated in Generations, suggesting that it would be in the stardrive section. Curiously, though those evacuated are just sent to crew quarters rather than the saucer's sickbay or a triage area in a cargo bay or whatever.
I'm not sure anything's been said weather the Enterprise E had more than one sickbay. I suppose it's possible.
Rick Sternbach's team worked in multiple first-aid/triage-type stations scattered throughout the ship on the Enterprise-D blueprints, as I recall. A sensible measure.
This was posted a couple weeks ago when production started. But nevertheless, it's reassuring to see that it's still happening!
...And that it’s not called “Enterprise”.
But my trusted sources!!!!!!
Well, now that Abrams' is fielding a project clearly all the money for SNW is being funneled there.
I'm glad they removed the unnecessary "Strange New Worlds" subtitle and are now calling it simply "Star Trek" as I proposed almost two years ago.
It's still called and will be called Strange New Worlds.
If not, it could only be (and I’m guessing the year here) Star Trek (2022), likely ST22 in short.
There's no indication that it won't use that. The sheet just gives information at a glance. Even the email is snw1office.
