Yes, I know this is fiction. But within that fiction there is data that shows that the current rendition of this is not correct.

Would you be ok if we added in, lets say pink fairies floating around spawning cyborg dragons that slaughter humans? It's only fiction isn't it?

Actually: Yes it would be okay. It would look weird in Star Trek, 'cause we're not used to it from the shows and movies. But in a world settled with "Transporter Beams" and "faster than light travel" and "artificial gravity", pink fairies would actually look reasonable.
Star Trek never cared a shred for realism. It's an entertaining piece of fiction and it does what it has to, to be interesting, entertaining and good looking.

There are about a billion things in Star Trek that don't care for and defy physics and are in for the simple reason, that Fiction doesn't care for physics either. You would have a Nasa Space Shuttle simulator if you made the game realistic.

So yes, "pink fairies floating around spawning cyborg dragons that slaughter humans" would be an actual option and wouldn't look more weird than a working Holodeck (Which also defies pretty much every single law of nature!). Hell, we even had Rumpelstiltskin in at one point.

Q and the Holodeck solve all riddles about the Star Trek Continuum. And maps of the Galaxy are pretty well established in the shows and fiction of the series.
