It is an ideal space for the captain to review status reports, hold one-on-one or small meetings with members of the senior staff, and receive private communications.
Quarters   The term quarters refers to accommodations on board spacecraft and space stations. Quarters can be found all over mobile and stationary facilities, varying in size and detail.

It is a heavily-guarded room that employs either gates or forcefields to keep those incarcerated segregated from the general population. These areas are used to contain criminals, fugitives, and others who pose a security risk and must be detained. They are also used as a means of punishment within the Starfleet ranks.
