My interpretation of the stolen Class J Cargo vessel in the episode “Mudd’s Women”. This is the civilian version.
And this is my version of the Starfleet cadet starship version mentioned in “The Menagerie” where Fleet Captain Pike was severely wounded. It is the Class J with warp nacelle upgrades.

Modeled part of the room with the viewing port from The Mark of Gideon to estimate the thickness of the hull, window and theorize on how the exterior shutters might work. I had not seen anyone else attempt this so some of the data might help others.
Viewing Port Dimensions (approx): 1.32m wide x 0.825m tall
Depth from Interior to Glass (approx): 335mm
Outer Shutter Thickness (approx): 62mm or 118mm depending on how it is viewed
Glass or Transparent Metal Thickness (approx): 117mm
Middle Slide Piece Thickness (approx): 7mm
Inner Shutter Thickness (approx): 40mm

It’s been a while since I did any 3D modeling. It has been a learning experience as well as I had upgraded to Lightwave 2018. My first model in a long time, a Burke 115 chair. It is still a work-in-progress.

This is also the second version that I modeled in Lightwave of the Observation Deck as seen in The Conscience of the King. This time around I followed the actual geometry of the walls and the result is a non-rectangular room 🙂 From production information, it’s a modified redress of the Romulan Bird of Prey bridge set from “The Balance of Terror”.
With this unusual shape, it doesn’t fit into any of the overlooking observation areas that are visible from the Flight Deck/Shuttle Bay so I’ve placed this room forward of the Flight Deck.

This is actually my Version 2 of the Flight Deck (Shuttle Bay in modern Trek) modeled back in September of 2013. Camera-matched and modeled in Lightwave to be screen-accurate to the original FX as seen in “The Galileo Seven”. As built, this interior is too wide to fit in a 947′ version of the Enterprise.
The Flight Deck has an elevator that lowers into the Hangar Deck below.
