Re: The Auxiliary Control Room

I imagine this set was originally conceived out of necessity for "The Doomsday Machine," since they used a portion of the standing Enterprise interior sets for the Constellation interiors, temporarily 'damaging' the sets for the latter by spray painting on fire damage and adding a bevy of bent conduits. A second control room was needed as they couldn't damage the bridge set--the majority of the scenes on the Enterprise were shot on there.

Interestingly, viewers first saw this set in "The Changeling," which was broadcast before but shot two weeks after the first episode where the ACR was shot on, "The Doomsday Machine." They had to damage it before they first shot on it! That also explains why the set is more ornately decorated in "The Changeling," with a computer access for Spock and additional computers in the engineers section.

I always wondered about the strangely half-moon angled wall to the right of the console... any thoughts about that?
In fact, in DM, except for some corridor shots, not a single 'Enterprise set', is used for the Constellation set pieces...
Well, except for all the scenes in the Engineering Room and the one scene in the Ward Room.
