Re: Where'd This Phase II Cutaway Come From...?

Best guess: This was intended to be on the back wall of Fleet Admiral Nogura's office in San Francisco (where a scene from the October 1977 pilot script 'In Thy Image' was set), to give viewers a taste of how much the Enterprise had been altered before they saw the 'new' ship itself. They were pretty far into construction of the sets when the decision was made to turn 'In Thy Image' into TMP (and put Taylor/Probert to work on redesigning the redesigned Enterprise) - even if Nogura's office itself wasn't put together, props were likely being made for it.
