* While not as bad as some of the other examples, ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' still managed to include a classic, Japanese-style tea room in the Arthra, one of the [[TheFederation Time-Space Administration Bureau's]] Dimensional Cruise Patrol Warships. The room even had TheThingThatGoesDoink.

* In Creator/LarryNiven's ''Literature/KnownSpace'', a [[AcmeProducts General Products]] #4 hull is a sphere more than a thousand feet in diameter. Kitted out with the superfast 'Quantum II' [[FasterThanLightTravel hyperdrive]], it has [[AwesomeButImpractical about as much living space as a Winnebago]].

** The TARDIS itself, thanks to being BiggerOnTheInside, surely have the most impressive "ship floor space to number of occupants" ratio of any series ''ever''. There's enough space inside a TARDIS to house ''an entire literal star''! We know for sure it has a library, pool, bedrooms, closet with any clothing you can imagine, and the ship itself is capable of producing basically anything its occupants could ever need. We may only see the control room most of the time, but there's a lot of stuff in there. It's only appropriate for the ships produced at the height of the power of the [[AbusingTheKardashevScaleForFunAndProfit richest, most powerful civilization in the history of the universe]]. That is not a boast. It is simply a description of the real situation. Ironically, the Doctor's TARDIS, a Type 40, is considered a literal antique by his people. We never actually get a look at a truly cutting edge TARDIS.

* Averted in Creator/JohnRingo's ''Literature/IntoTheLookingGlass'' novels: Earth's first starship, the Vorpal Blade, is a converted ''Ohio''-class [[SuperiorFirepowerMissileSubmarines ballistic missile submarine]].

* Averted in ''Anime/StarshipOperators'' where accommodations aboard the Amaterasu were claustrophobic.



** Hey, if they are advanced enough to build the galaxies most powerful spaceships out of nothing but WOOD without using nails and screws or even glue, and the trees used to power their ships have the ability to put up force fields ''wings'' that are so powerful that not even another goddess at the same level as Tsunami cannot even comprehend how it was done in over 20,000 years she descended, what can't they do?

* Jurai treeships in ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'', especially those belonging to the royal family, are not simply roomy and well-outfitted, but can be ridiculously spacious and luxurious. ''Mikagami'', Seto's personal warship, one of the most powerful in the Jurai fleet, has a huge Japanese-style landscape park (complete with TheThingThatGoesDoink). Its crew -- exactly one. But then, the Juraian Empire IS wealthy beyond belief, and they ARE {{Sufficiently Advanced Alien}}s.\\\
** To clarify, the ships of Jurai are powered by Royal Trees that draws energy from multiple dimensions from their roots, which are direct descendants of Tsunami, one of the goddesses which created the multi-dimensional ''Tenchi Muyo'' universe. Along with obscene amounts of speed and firepower, a Royal Tree can generate a pocket dimension for its crew. Like the [[Series/DoctorWho TARDIS]], a Jurai treeship is MUCH BiggerOnTheInside than it looks on the outside. Essentially, the interior is pretty much as big as the owner wants it to be. A full size luxury resort and hotel, complete with wildlife park? No problem!\\\

In media, both smaller spacecraft and larger starships (especially the CoolStarship) [[UnnecessarilyLargeInterior revel in their unnecessary use of on-board space.]] Passageways will be broad with high ceilings. The bridge will be an expansive multilevel complex paneled with floating viewscreens and control panels. Crew quarters will be as spacious as a suite at the Plaza.

*** Actually, the greatest concern was the mental health of [[RedshirtArmy conscripted seamen]], not [[StiffUpperLip professional navy officers]].

* A purely mathematically efficient use of space might have a detrimental effect on the mental well-being of the crew, especially if spaceships are out of port for a very extended period of time. To give a more interesting RealLife case, the Soviet/Russian Akula/"Typhoon" class submarines (all but one has now retired) had a swimming pool, sports facilities, a sauna and a smoking room, since the subs could spend at least 180 days submerged at a time. Creator/TomClancy got this wrong in ''Literature/TheHuntForRedOctober'', but that was more a bad guess based on other submarines. The "Typhoon" is the exception rather than the rule, although ballistic missile-carrying submarines are noted for their attention to crew comfort. If you want cramped, look at modern hunter/killer submarines or go back to WorldWarII subs (watching ''Film/DasBoot'' will give you an idea of how ridiculously claustrophobic these are).
