true, although "elevator conservations" makes me think of NCIS these days, given how often that show uses the lifts for discrete meetings.

on a more serious note, a x-axis "tower block" design makes more sense on lower tech ships, specifically ones without artificial gravity, as then you can use thrust to simulate gravity. its a common enough sci fi trope, and on ships too large to land on a planet, deck orientation is really a matter of designer reference.
