Finally watching the ST Discovery season 3 finale and uh
why the heck do the turbolift transit paths take up so much heckin' space? Seems really inefficient.
like I feel like the show decided to finally show what the workings of the turbolift look like for cool factor but had no idea how it would work and just like... didn't think anything through
like there's a reason Jefferies tubes are so small and cramped, bulkheads and decks are pretty tightly packed on starships!
@millenomi but the retrofit didn't make the ship bigger on the outside so why would it be smaller on the inside
@fluffy … I think the idea there was 'let's show that the turbolift in this century aren't on sliding paths with forcefields, but instead are on ad-hoc paths where the forcefields are projected by programmable matter' and then completely fucked up the space proportion in service to Book avenging his cat
@millenomi it annoys me how much of that whole sequence was Book and/or Burnham doing oneliners while giving everyone else openings where they could have just like headshotted them but didn't because of rule-of-cool
@fluffy yeah there was a LOT of empty space inside that ship. Guess they got tired of Jeffries tubes
@Andy_P I was also surprised at how much turbolift traffic there was during an active lockdown and insurrection when the turbolifts had specifically been shut down
@fluffy Yeah I wasn't really watching for technical stuff (like I do with The Expanse) but I sure noticed the turbolift scenes.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
