Re: Deep Space Station K-7 Origins (Aerospace Industry Trivia)

...The funny thing is, the "sombrero" shape for the module is something specifically designed for launching in the nose of a classic phallic-shaped rocket - and as such should have no business forming part of a Federation space station far, far away from phallic-shaped rockets in terms of both space and time.

Then again, the sombreros of K-7 do not appear to have the true inter- and overlapping "brim" segment design, but instead have seamlessly smooth "brims"...
