I am re-watching TNG for the first time since original airing and something is bothering me that didn't as a kid.
How long is a shift for senior staff? Is the bridge rotation every 8 or 12 hours? Is there an in universe answer for this? As it seems that all of the senior staff are on the same shift (which seems very very weird) who is on the other shifts? Or do shifts overlap and so it just so happens that a majority of major items happen during these overlaps?
