Re: The Mystery Inside the TOS Primary Hull Support Pylon

If you look closely, you will notice that both nacelle pylons also have windows on them - 3 on each pylon, to be exact. The port-to-starboard width of these pylons is about the same as the port-to-starboard width of the neck. It's hard to argue there's any habitable space in the nacelle pylons, other than a maintenance crawlway that leads from engineering up to the nacelles. Yet, like the neck, it has windows which could suggest lighted maintenance alcoves.

I would suspect the innards of the neck to be similar in nature to the interior of the nacelle pylons, only on a larger scale.
Which raises another question for those in the know

Given that there are windows on the nacelle struts...

Assuming ( only for the purpose of determining the maximum theoretical internal space there would be ) it's a hollow space in there (e.g., no internal supports or piping, wiring, ducts) , how much room would there be for a person looking out a window?
