Re: Starfleet Procurement Policy Draft

The thing is this exterior is kind of belied by the fact that Enterprise ship interiors actually look a bit more like submarine compartments than anything else, and have what appear to be loadbearing structures in the corridors. (The round thingies between each partition, I think are actually loadbearing arches of some sort)

So maybe the pressure hull exterior is built to be extremely robust, but can't actually take much compression stress.
