This is a legit Star Trek problem--not to be confused with the Robot's Pajamas ongoing strip, Star Trek Problems, which is great! But to the point, how long is a ride in the turbolift--a glorified elevator--from the bridge to the transporter room? Yeah, generally it's about the same amount of time as whatever exposition you have to have before you get there. Next Gen may have laid off that a bit, and actually had briefings in briefing rooms, but it's ongoing. TV Tropes refers to it as Elevator Conference, so I'm not the only one to notice.
