Re: Shuttlebay 02 - USS Enterprise 1701 D - TNG

I'd be interested to hear Mr. Probert's take on this issue.

I still love the modeled version. The set hanger door was initially a product of show budget, using the emergency drop-down door from the Refit Engine Room (ST:ROK). When that door was open, you would be looking at the stage doors that opened to an alley between stages (for bringing big stuff on & off stage).

Nevertheless, the visual effects people (the same ones that showed the Stargazer as being nearly the same size as the 'D') didn't have a clue as to what they were producing outside that door and I had no input in that regard.

Another case where "CANON" ain't all that.

I never made that connection before! I love the behind-the-scenes stuff!

Re: Shuttlebay 02 - USS Enterprise 1701 D - TNG

Here's some fandom acrobatics -

The double-door design, as sketched, is because this shuttlebay also functions as a huge gangway for certain yet-to-be-built ambilacles for starbases, just for Galaxy class ships.
Cargo would be unloaded through this huge gangway.
And then there's access doors between the shuttlebay and the outerdoor that accesses the 'unfinished' areas of the ship, so construction materials could quickly be loaded inside the construction site.

It's a nice idea but in the end it would'de probably been a class-specific connector to the main shuttlebay like the one on the Nemesis dock.

Much larger and the main shuttlebay can also be used as a temporary storage area due to its enormous size.
