Why Are Ships the Same Way Up in Star Trek?

Here's an idea that might explain why, when there's no "up" in space, that spaceships in Star Trek are so often the same way "up." Enjoy!

no karl. no.

 

first, the transporter thing doesnt make sense. if i flip my desktop upside down to write this comment, its not going to display upside down for you. so if one transporters scans you from the middle out and the next prints you out in the same manner. the orientations dont matter.

 

so star trek series takes part in the milky way galaxy. this galaxy like all others, has a galactic plane.

every solar system found in said galaxy. will rotate in the same direction as all the other systems around the core, either on or slighty above or below that galactic plane. but each solar systems own plane might be different. so for navigation purposes. it would make sense to have standardized logistics based on the galaxy rather then each individual solar system. then thru conflict, empires would addept the same practices.
