Re: the ceiling of Kirk`s Bridge - transparent?

Just a quick thought for whatever it's worth. In trying to determine the function of the lighted Bridge dome (exterior view), I believe we'd also have to determine the function of the lighted dome at the bottom of the saucer's underside.

I can't shake this feeling that both have foremost a position light function, where the outer rim position lights are merely the outer borders of an (otherwise unknown) center in "dark" space.

To go with the assumption it's the same exotic lighting effect we have with the other exterior hull windows would force us to conclude that the Phaser Control Room's floor had to be transparent, wouldn't it?
