# 1 I wonder...

Where do the Duty Officers all stay in some of the smaller ships? I mean, for example, looking at my VA Refit options, the Escort seems logical for a Tactical but... with a crew size of 50, I have to wonder where 100 Duty Officers would fit inside that little thing...

Let alone if someone bought 400 slots and filled them all up...

Operating out of your offices on the starbase of our choice.

Or, you just had the ship remodeled a bit - bunk beds and latrines instead of private bathrooms for each quarter. The bigger Birds of Prey pack 100+ into less bulky ships than the Defiant, after all.

To be fair there's a big difference in Federation and Empire ship design. Federation ships have the large, spacious rooms to help stave off cabin fever if the ship is stuck in space for years at a time. Empire ships well... comfort isn't even on the list of anything...

Well the way I figure it as an Admiral you have a Command that is probably larger than a single ship. One simple option is that you are actually commanding a squadron of a half-dozen or so Escorts/BoPs in which case the other Duty Officers are on those ships carrying out different assignments. Alternatively maybe you're more like Sisko and you are in command of a static installation somewhere with your Escort simply being the mobile portion of your command.

Or maybe you employ sub-space folding technology to make your ship larger on the inside than it is on the outside .
