Re: TOS Enterprise Interiors -- Unreal 3 Engine

I wholeheartedly concur - the render of the (yellow doodad) is fantastic, I could genuinely believe it to be part of some machinery hidden behind the wall.

As for their real world origin: I seem to remember reading -possible in "Star Trek the Inside Story" - that these were styrofoam packaging (from various deliveries at Paramount) that Matt Jefferies simply spray-painted and mounted on the corridor walls. The light weight material they were made from was perfect for the task!

As to what they were originally packaged around - I'm afraid I have no clue.
