From Ex Astris Scientia:

"11-"00"-1001 In TNG: "11001001" we see two Bynars step forth from a corner of the bridge where only the restroom is supposedly located. So just like two of them work as a unit, Bynars may have to visit the restroom in couples. Or they generally don't have to, but these two Bynars are female."



Is there any canon evidence that that's where the bathroom is? Or even backscreen evidence that I've never heard? Or some fan rumor?

I've seen several cut aways and fan produced blueprints over the years that show them, but as far as semi canon evidence goes, didn't Mike Okuda have a footnote about it in the old TNG technical manual?

What was the door ever labeled as? Does anyone know which episode(s) would have had a clear view?

Of course, jokes aside, there could easily have been some computer conduit running through the bathroom wall ("Head bulkhead" doesn't sound right) that the Bynars had to access.

Speaking of heads, I know the "waste extraction" gag, but seriously...I can't imagine Picard unrolling toilet paper, somehow, much less Spock.

Well, can you imagine Queen Elizabeth doing it?


And, for possibly different reasons, President Bush?

Point taken. The Spock thing remains though. Toilet paper seems somehow un-Vulcan. Wasteful. I feel like they'd use a bidet or something...

Maybe they use the seashells from Demolition Man instead of TP

Sonic bidet, surely.

Given how full of shit the Vulcans appeared on Enterprise, I don't think they had toilets!

I'm thinking about the other examples we've seen anyone use that door. The only one that comes to mind is in "Descent", where the crazy-ass LoreBorg attack the bridge, and a security guy pops out only AFTER everyone's been shot. That waste extraction process must be a bitch to stop mid-stream. [Smile]

I'm sure if the plot called for it, they'd have two.

Ask Commander Tucker. I'm sure he could tell you.
