Re: Another fan attempt at TOS deck plans

-The Windows get really interesting on the engine hull. There are two rows on one deck, others in really wierd positions.
If you are talking about the engineering deck, it is (I thought) well known that that deck is divided into two levels towards the outer edges of the hull (on one side there is a walkway overlooking main engineering and on the other is the Emergency Manual Monitor room also overlooking main engineering).


-Fitting 430 people in there? Yeah...no.
This is just me doing some very fast figures, so please bare with me.

I calculated the square footage of the officer's quarters at about 315 sqft. The largest circular deck has a square footage of about 136,572 sqft. If 80% of that deck was used for living space, that would be about 109,258 sqft.

How many of these single person quarters should fit in that area?

About 346... on just that one deck. But we know that there are living areas on multiple decks, that should be more than enough to handle 430 crew.

That is just me looking at the numbers (without attempting to fit these rooms together), but it sure looks fine from my perspective. And even better if enlisted and junior officers had to double up per quarters (why would they need office space?).
