Quite some time ago (honest) I owned a copy of a facinating book called the
"Star Trek Technical Manual" which included a lot of really interesting (in
a rather sad sort of way) material including:
1. circuit diagrams of a "communicator" (didn't work)
2. what all the different uniform colours and insignia meant (used to be red
uniform = going to die during this episode!!)
3. details of the navigation system for space
4. complete floor plans of the Enterprise (the first one)
The floor plans quite clearly showed toilets on the bridge accessed through
a door to the right of the viewing screen.
Never saw anyone use them....also never noticed evidence of embarrassing
noises/smells effecting operations on the bridge, so truly their technology
must be VERY advanced.
Before anyone asks, no, I don't have the book any more, and nobody is more
miffed about that fact than me!
