There should be a brewery (actually a still) IN Engineering. It shouldn't BE Engineering.
Well, according to the makers of the television show called Star Trek: Discovery, the inside of a Federaton starship, around the time of TOS, is like Willie Wonka’s chocolate factory, with HUGE open spaces and rollercoaster tracks for the turbo elevators—or, in this case, “Starfleet Wonkavators”—to endlessly roll around on.

And they're completely wrong. Even in TOS almost everything on Enterprise operated by using energy--propulsion, weapons, shields, transporters, you name it. So why would the Turbolifts be restrained by roller-coaster-like tracks? Because the people responsible for producing STD are from generations that were very different from Gene Roddenberry's era. Roddenberry was a bit of a visionary, imagining a far more idealistic future than we've ever actually known, and that included future technology. That's why ALL of Trek's technology was at least one or two steps ahead of what we were familiar with in the 1960s; Roddenberry was projecting into the 2260s. By that time I think it would be safe to assume roller-coaster tracks will be obsolete technology. But the people responsible for STD clearly don't think that way; they're stuck in the early-21st Century and can't see beyond that.Well, according to the makers of the television show called Star Trek: Discovery, the inside of a Federaton starship, around the time of TOS, is like Willie Wonka’s chocolate factory, with HUGE open spaces and rollercoaster tracks for the turbo elevators—or, in this case, “Starfleet Wonkavators”—to endlessly roll around on.

The JJ Enterprise engine room looks like a brewery, does that count?
I watched Generations again the other day. When Geordi is captured by the Klingons why does the hacked feed from his visor look like perfectly clear video? We've seen how he sees through his visor and it's nothing like that.
It's like when people try those anti-colorblindness glasses. Those videos always blow my mind.You even get to see the first time Geordie has ever SEEN what the world looks like to others, when Q tries to tempt him with functioning vision. he's blown away, it's beautiful to him, and he passes on it, because he won't abandon his crewmates to Q's whims.
I forgot that he couldn't see the visible spectrum with the visor, and that it was specifically brought up in the show. That being said, maybe he got a new visor for Generations?
LeVar Burton had been asking the production staff to somehow get rid of that visor almost from the beginning of TNG because it hid his eyes. That's why Geordi always seemed so animated--Mr. Burton couldn't use his eyes to express himself, so he had to rely on gestures. Surely everyone involved in such a change knew they wouldn't be making many more movies, so they finally granted Mr. Burton's request.Now, as for what his cyber eyes do once he shows up with those out of nowhere in one of the movies, I've got no clue; I think that's just them trying to distance the character from the look of the visor; it's very 1980's. lol
Three words.“Captain, we’re approaching the planet”, “bring us out of warp”. Seeing as the ship would be travelling at many times the speed of light, surely by the time the helmsperson responds and drops out of warp, many millions of miles will have past And the planet receding in the distance!
