Maybe water storage wrapping around the engineering hull core--like some of the rad shelters for NASA deep space craft that are to be found in the core of real ships on the drawing board.
That's exactly the concept they might have had in mind for these circular lounges (e,g, Conference Lounge and "Briefing Lounge" in "Where No Man Has Gone Before") and locations on Decks 4 through 6 of the saucer deck plan drafts.

Indeed, the circular surroundings of the Engineering Core could have a similar function for personnel working in this hull during an emergency.
