Re: Rick Sternbach ST:TMP Question - Science Station Lights

Well, I'm not Rick, but according to the Enterprise Flight Manual document put together to instruct the actors on their consoles, the honeycomb displays are "Computer Library Display -- Each lighted honeycomb cell represents a circuit to a special memory core." And it looks to me like they just stuck some light bulbs behind honeycomb-patterned sheets of plastic, so that each bulb's glow looked like several adjacent illuminated cells.
