I might be okay with the other common conjecture of 1080'. but then, it's your baby.
That's what I was thinking. 1080' is only a 14% increase over 947', but oh what a difference those fourteen points make for notoriously tight spots. I'm not a 36 degree absolutist, but there are many other locations on the Enterprise
where 1080' makes more sense, like the shuttle hangar and fitting two reasonably-spaced decks into the saucer rim.
