Can you imagine sitting in that chair for 8 hrs/day? How boring. That's what I never understood about Star Trek. Even at "warp speed" it can take
days to get somewhere. Does the Captain just hang out in the chair and stare blankly at the view screen?
Well, it sounds boring but I think it really is not.
We really don't know how long the captain sits on his chair on a daily basis. I'm assuming that if Star Trek really simulates a real military chain
of command, operations etc. etc. I am fairly certain that the captain only clock in a short period of time.
I mean, he is the top management officer on the ship, so he's only there to manage some of the Department leaders, get reports, discuss a few
important topics, make a few key decisions.
The remaining time, it depends on which generation of Star Trek we are referring to. If we are talking about J.J. Abram's Wrath of Khan reboot, then
the ships have not yet installed any holographic technologies.
If the ships are outfitted with holo decks, then they can spend a lot of their "boring time" in holographic chambers. I mean, they could literally
simulate anything, even intercourse with holograms you design yourself.
