    Wow. Yup. Huge ass turnolift interior. I dont know how this could be explained. Perhaps it's just mirrors lined along the turbo lift innards which make it look huge....idk. just stupid...smh..

    Well, as I was told earlier nit everything in science fiction gets explained. Also, I recall a line from the TOS writers bible about not explaining everything.

    I'm eagerly awaiting an episode where they're like, "we can't fit all these colonists on the ship and their planet is about to explode!" at which point I will SPAM the thread with pictures of the Turbolift Funhouse.

    Honestly a fullsized Connie, even a refit, would be interestingly large. It's not only the size of a carrier, but it's a high-rise in its own right. Plenty of hidden stuff and nooks there.

    Thinking that scene was in for comedy is really clutching at straws

    I more thinking someone had fun with it, found it enjoyable and humorous and ran with it.

    I don't know. And frankly, even if it isn't, I also am struggling really really hard to assigned any sort of malicious or apathetic intent behind the scenes by the VFX team

    I thought I read somewhere that this was something you could blame Kurtzman for, that it was his suggestion.
    At least for the one on Discovery.

    It sure didn't seem like the disco turbo fun house was in a comedy episode. If I recall Burnham was having some kind of fight. When I first saw it I thought what was the person smoking who came up with this turbolift schematic. I mean really it was idiotic.

    Ok.

    I'll just file that away in my idiotic Star Trek filing cabinet.

    That fight was in Season 3.
    The first time we see it in Season 2 it was just a normal turbolift scene.

    Someone did the measurements of the one seen in Season 2 and based on the size of the turbolift cars it would fit inside the Discovery's secondary hull. There's also a diagram from the art team from Season 2 showing where it is on the ship and it is in the secondary hull.

    The Season 3 one wouldn't fit as it is portrayed a lot bigger, but according to the Enterprise 'Future Tense', by the 31st Century they will have bigger on the inside tech, so it doesn't need to fit.

    The fight scene made it even more ludicrous. No way all that space fit unless the whole secondary hull is void space for turbolifts.

    The ship isn't a 31st century ship. So no its never made sense and still doesn't.

    It was refit, as stated in the season.

    Not that it would be the first ship with sets that didn't fit.

    For sure.

    Didn't it have a Jefferies tube?
