What always jumps out at be in this drawing is the lack of a forward wall above the observation gallery of the hangar deck. A room above the gallery open to the hangar? Now what do you suppose that's for?
Strike that...from another thread...

....Here are a couple of details from the original:

As you'll note, the engineering section is actually labelled. Also, the hangar features more original detail. Finally, there is a legend that gives the precise coordinates for Engineering, Hangar Deck and Shuttlecraft Storage and Maintenence.

Notice especially that the deck in Engineering is called out as 2 feet lower than the hangar deck (which is on the centerline of the hull). One final item of note is the elliptical profile of the hangar doors. An interesting detail, that.
