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

I doubt it's actually from the period. The concept of MSDs didn't really exist yet -- I think the only cutaway profile of that type we saw as set graphics prior to TNG (not counting the schematic in "Day of the Dove") was in the turbolift in TMP and after. Also, from what I can make out, the inset cutaway of the pre-refit 1701 bears a resemblance to the Doug Drexler "In a Mirror, Darkly" cutaway.

Besides, why would Nogura have had a cross-section of just one ship on his office wall?
