A thought occurs.
We seem to be assuming in this conversation that photonic fleet works the way traditional Trek holograms do, they've been traditionally explained, with light projections surrounded by forcefields and on-the-fly replication for things like food and bullets. However, since this is the early 25th century, we could assume that Starfleet figured out a way to reverse-engineer some of those advanced projection technologies
found out about (i.e. isomorphic projection and particle synthesis) and implement them on a wide scale. It would iron out some of the inconsistencies (maybe).
