Re: TOS Enterprise stairs and turbo lift walk arounds
But those tri-ladders no doubt could be used for sliding; the corridor sets establish tri-ladder shafts at locations supposedly pretty far from the central axis, but at multiple points, so Spock would have to cover some horizontal distance to find the tri-ladder that goes straight down to Phaser Control.
Interesting. Do you think that one side of the tri-ladder has slide-down rungs to speed up travel?
The major problem with the whole scene is Spock holding on to his pad as if his life depended on it. So however he managed his way down, he apparently only had one hand to hold on to something.
