...Curiously, the other window shows a wall with a grillework that closely matches that on the interior set. Which is good continuity, but the grille in the set is rather down low, below shoulder level, suggesting that the guy peeking out is crouching deep down, or a dwarf!
The apparent floor level indicated by the docking port establishes this already anyway. What was Probert thinking, placing these portholes so low in relation to the doors? Perhaps he assumed that the interior set would have stairs not unlike those found in the "topside docking port" set through which Spock enters?
Well, you're looking at a separate scaled-up model of the hull there, and usually when they do these, they aren't particularly accurate (the one built for the can-opener shot in TWOK for instance, which I guess has a lot of inaccuracies in it.) Is it possible that these other portholes aren't quite placed in the same way on the full 8' shooting miniature?
BTW, that is modelmaker Mark Stetson in the window.
