Donny, your attention to detail is truly fascinating.
At first I thought there was something wrong with the "leg" of the table near the wall, but this screencap
from "Mirror, Mirror" clearly revealed that that's the way it is (although I could invoke the "overscan argument"). Is that the shot from which you extracted the table support or did you have a better one at your disposal?
This is the only other one I could find, which sold me.
Funny, I think it looks odd too, and I just knew someone would doubt it's validity. The table was also used as part of the Starbase 12 Computer Room in The Menagerie
If you look closely at the end of the table on the bottom left side of the screen cap, you can see the slenderer support underneath the table. Although, in-universe
, it can't be the same exact table as the one on the Enterprise, I feel it still backs up the validity of the table in my screenshots, being that it's the same table in reality
After all, seems logical that Starfleet would get all its tables in bulk from one manufacturer!
I'm sure these tables got shipped out to starships and starbases across the Federation.
