thecolclough: Didn't ST:TMP use the NCC-1701A, a supposed "refit" that completely altered the shape of just about every part of the ship?
ermmm... you're probably right! i'm not a massive trekkie or anything, so i can't remember exactly which ship is in every episode, it's just i saw TMP
not that long ago, and i thought the hangar / dry-dock structure looked a lot like the one in the movie...
maybe olias has depicted what the scene would have looked like when Enterprise had just gone in for the refit, but they hadn't started metamorphosing its shape yet?
