Why should it be constrained to looking like anything at all?

With the the tech they use for the replicators, transporters, and holodecks, the whole thing could be fluid, changing configuration as required by circumstance (e.g. by adding handrails during battles, to stop everyone getting tossed around so much on shockwaves that can't happen in space).  Why walk over to the science station, when it can be right in front of you when you need it?

In fact, the whole ship should be generated -- which would also be handy in battles, as it would be all-but indestructible (and would also provide an inherent low-speed navigation system, which would be even more useful in battles, which apparently will always be conducted at extremely low speeds).


That's the problem with most people who call themselves sci-fi writers: they add tech to meet very specific needs in a story or two, but rarely give any consideration to how it will affect everything else.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
