Re: Photo request -- Enterprise hangar deck studio miniature

I suspect we're seeing an illusion created by a lot of odd angles and curves in a forced perspective miniature. The bays back walls appear to be flat or slightly curved but it's difficult to tell, the openings are trapezoids cut into a tapering cylinder, and the end walls with the hatches are at other angles still. When you move a camera around relative to such a thing you'll get all kinds of optical distortion.
