There is a galactic North. But no galactic top, or "up".

Ships aren't always presented as "right way up", but when alone, the representation is that of the imagined camera. When with other ships, you could always imagine that there is a certain protocol for ships travelling along specified routes in space.


After all, they usually manage to avoid getting in each other's way (unintentionally at least)

True... but that protocol would only be with certain groups - not all.  How many "new civilizations" did they met and everyone was the same orientation (even in the delta quadrant?)

I thought of that too. At a point there really isn't a workable explanation and like so many other things, it winds up being a matter of suspension of disbelief.

Because it is TV and it is easier to present one aspect than to confuse the audiance with multiple ones.



Same reason the ships appear to come to a stop when the engines stop working.

Yea.... I've always thought it was funny that if a ship was moving, that all the sudden they stop if there's an engine issue.

Flip it upside down?

There's a few websites that do this for you:

http://www.fliptext.org/


etc...


 


I just figured to do something different (to catch people's attention) and it related to the topic.
