Did you ever catch his series in the early to mid 90's Nowhere Man? He was great in that. Too bad it got pulled after 25 episodes.

I understand the point about engineering especially considering TNG and the movies. Everything in TNG was computer controlled, but there had to be manual controls for everything as well. All the time we keep hearing "switch to manual" but things are still controlled by buttons. It would be reasonable to think there had to be actual physical controls somewhere and the ability to repair damage. A valve is still a valve and it must be closed with some kind of handle. Also, occasionally we see escaping steam and the like that would likely have to come from.... pipes. I suppose there could have been panels covering all the guts up in engineering for all the tourists.

That said, I do agree that they went overboard a bit from what I have seen. Too much metal, which by then I would think most such things would be made up of composites. But it would still be cluttered with exposed piping.

Different topic but related a little, but I would think even 200 years in the future many doors would have recessed handholds to open them when the power is out or otherwise damaged (except for lifts and such). Instead they either have to be forced or need some kind of suction tool to grab on.

Dear god I hope that is not engineering, it looks like something right out of the 1860s.
