Re: Do turbolifts have any sense?

@ Faria

Since you illustrated this cutaway diagram, I found it interesting that you didn't wonder why the shaft connecting the engineering with the saucer hull is not diagonal.

Of course, turbo lifts make sense. It's an easy way for the DP to box the actors up in a location and have their dialogue recorded.

@ Timo

According to the studio set plans the diameter of the turbo lift was 8' which I believe is enough space to move a TOS stretcher trolley in there together with two medical assistants.
