Re: Everytime I watch TWOK/TSFS...
If there is an emergency release latch inside, I'm interested in finding out the reasons why they are there. Starfleet Academy hazing, maybe? Pranks on the junior officers? These things were not designed to have human bodies in them. Unless it's SOP to put bodies into them to "bury them at space." Which, in Spock's case, makes some sense due to the radiation (as I'm sure the photon torpedo casing would have to protect against the radiation from inside the torpedo).
