Re: TOS Enterprise stairs and turbo lift walk arounds

Sliding down a ladder that has no obvious side supports should be easy enough, done the way Kirk does it in ST2: by pressing your shoes against the vertical bars from the outside. But that does take two hands...

Then again, gravity might be reduced or absent in the tri-ladder shafts (save for whatever convenient "leakage" there is at the levels of each deck), so one might safely simply drop down for ten decks and reach a terminal velocity of all of two meters per second. The way climbing a tri-ladder is portrayed in the show is not completely at odds with such a thing.
