Re: 3 engine rooms in the TOS Enterprise's engineering hull?

No, not necessarily. I addressed the issue of reducing corridor radius in theory # 4 in the introduction to my parallel thread: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=195496

Add to this we have seen circular corridors in the engineering hull in "Dagger of the Mind", "The Doomsday Machine", "Mudd's Women" and "The Enemy Within"), therefore it has to be equally possible to have the corridor leading to the engineering room in "The Ultimate Computer" in the engineering hull, too.
