Wait, what ? That episode is aggressively stylistic, but it's gorgeous. It's not trying to look realistic, and that is the point - the whole environment is a construct, a stage for a morality play. It may not be the most visually appealing episode, but it's certainly the most effective use of design in TOS.

Yeah but it only happened that way because the original plan to film on some regular western style sets fell through. It's much better the way it aired, but that wasn't the original plan.

I don't really remember but was battlestar galactica the first show to not do that unless absolutely Neccesary?

Actually the original '79 Galactica was really good about that. Adama almost never left the ship in that version of the show. 2004 Galactica had Adama wandering off in an abandoned space station by himself in the pilot.
