I'm just glad you can access the passenger section from some place other than the engine room as in the original CT deck plan. One other pesky thorn I still have with virtually ALL Traveller deck plans is the over-use of floor/ceiling hatches. IMO your deck plan would be even better with actual stairs or at the very least a lift dedicated to vertical circulation. Currently the only way to access the passenger areas is through a hole in the floor via ladder.
lol. And it's in the very center of the common space. Floor/ceiling hatches should be emergency / back-up access between decks, or in utility access spaces. I would suggest simply adding a small lift in the lower left hand corner of the deck 1 common space connecting to the common space above (just as you enter from the main airlock-is that a plant in the corner? Same place as the plant is located...) This would allow passengers to go directly up to their state rooms and commons space as soon as they enter the ship. You can place the hatch beside the lift in case of complete power failure. Just a suggestion. Otherwise I like your plan.
Uhm, yeah, you're very probably right. In the future they caan make a jump drive, can make a gravitic drive, they have advanced computers, but can't manage a lift between floors. I might make a revision with a lift and less 'plants'.
EDIT: I think I'll keep the hatch between the enginering sections. Old school baby.
2nd EDIT: Actually, where you suggest won't work, a lift where you suggest would put you outside the ship when you go up. I'll have to think on it a bit more.
