Janeways Bathroom

Captain Janeway's bathroom on board the Intrepid-class USS Voyager

A bathroom, also known as a restroom, waste extraction, toilet facility, or the head, is a room that generally contains a toilet, and may also contain any of the following: sink, shower/sonic shower or a bath tub. These fixtures are then connected to a sewage and waste reclamation system where they are recycled.

In 1986, the Mercy Hospital in San Francisco had gender-segregated restrooms. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

In 2255 of an alternate reality, Leonard McCoy sought shelter in the shuttle Bardeen's windowless bathroom in response to his aviophobia. An officer later escorted McCoy, despite his protestations, to a seat. (Star Trek)

In 2364, a series of malfunctions aboard the USS Enterprise-D – which were caused by a microbrain from Velara III – included locking two crew members in the head programmers' restroom. (TNG: "Home Soil")

The holding cells aboard Deep Space 9 featured a restroom. (DS9: "Vortex")

In 2375, the USS Voyager faced a situation where it was functioning on a mere four lavatories. (VOY: "Bride of Chaotica!")

Background information Edit

Head can also refer to a toilet in the bathroom, although this term was used in Star Trek: The Next Generation USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D Blueprints and not any canon productions.

According to the Star Trek: The Next Generation USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D Blueprints, the door in Jean-Luc Picard's ready room led to a bathroom. The blueprints also referred to the bathrooms as both "toilets" and "heads".

The main bridge of the USS Enterprise-D featured a bathroom just off the doors leading to the observation lounge. In the authorized re-creation of the main bridge in Star Trek: The Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton, the inscription on the doors read "HEAD". The head was visible in a few episodes, but although it was not in focus enough to read the inscription, the length of the inscription changed between episodes during the seventh season. In addition, in episodes throughout the seventh season, multiple crew members can be seen simultaneously entering the bridge via the head. It is unclear how many toilets are available for use in the head on the main bridge.

According to Jonathan Frakes during the "Journey's End: The Saga of Star Trek: The Next Generation" special in 1994, the Enterprise-D had only one bathroom and he proceeded to point to it on the large cross-section of the Enterprise-D in the main engineering set.

As for how it works, as Bashir said in "Fascination", best not to dwell on it too much.
