I do wonder what a Starfleet Custodial Engineering Badge would look like.

Anybody?

Nanotechnology, robotics, artificial intelligence, batteries with capacaties high enough to make a toy fire a deadly burst of energy, nowadays computer technology for the price of a sheet of paper... come on folks! You really think we would need guys with mobs in twohundred years?

"Commander, I have a complaint. We have to stop by at a Class M Planet, so that my washerwoman can clean my laundry in a river. And while we ar at it, the ships kitchen needs new supplies of firewood for the updraft kiln, and the ships surgeon would like to hire a knife grinder for his bone saws too. Oh, and did I mention that we are out of codliver oil and moustache wax?"

Ah technology. Always the usual answer for how day to day chores are solved. How boring.

Personally, I prefer to take a little bit of everything. I do think Federation starships have onboard systems that help keep the vessels clean, but I still believe that ships have general maintenance staff among their crews and they work generally during the night watch. With Federation technology at hand, a Galaxy-class starship probably has only a small fraction of the general maintenance staff that a Nimitz-class carrier might require...

Most dirt comes from outdoors, I would expect when the crew return from away missions the transporters would remove all of the dirt from their shoes ect, almost as if it were running the bio-filter.

I agree, I think an exterior buildup, radiations, ect. Are dealt with at a Starbase that can do that, as well as paint, and other cosmetic touch ups.
