Re: The Mystery Inside the TOS Primary Hull Support Pylon

They might also be early examples of what we see in ST:FC, demonstrated to Lily Sloane by Picard: a hole in the wall of the starship for some sort of a logistical purpose, perhaps somewhat resembling a window even when shuttered.

Some backstage doubletalk tried to explain the ST:FC hole as a means of purging onboard air when the ship is suitably connected to a starbase. Regardless of whether that exact idea carries merit, there might be a lot of use for purge valves in the engine pylons...
