A set of LEDs 2 red 2 yellow are set into some the gribblies in the neck, used to help add some detail and distract the eye from seeing that it is a PVC threaded joint. They pulse at different rates to simulate different 'plasma' power conduits working under different loads. Also seen here is a length of electroluminescent wire wrapped into the PVC threads, it is movie era/ Next Generation but we took liberty here since out of all the other colors it looked best under both dark and normal room light levels.J-57 Techmages Sci-Fi Models TOS Star Trek Completed Space Station neck joint
Also seen is a close look at the Lower [Cargo] Shuttle Bays
There are 4 lower cargo shuttle bays; the K-7 seen in the Original Star Trek Series had a single darkened bay/opening at its bottom stub.
Word has it that the original model had a inscription that said, "Welcome to the K-7 Space Station, Now Go Away"
Here we have several different bays each is marked for a different function and each has its own a funny saying;
"Welcome to Jefferies Station
Now Go Home
Customs Inspection Area"

"Radiation Warning

"Hard Hat Area
Maintenance Only"

"If you can read this you have been fatally irradiated
Waste Reclamation"

The customs bay has a long shuttlecraft with several black view ports (a passenger shuttle).
The maintenance bay has some smaller 'half' back shuttles; one is mounted on a piece of thick plastic fiber optic, so it appears to be flying out of the bay
Other bays have various shuttles sitting about on their pads. Every bay has 4 pads, with some of the pads printed up to appear to have oil/fluid stains.

Note the Theme music plays out a speaker set on the motor (it will be encased in some foam to reduce motor noise), the bridge and navigation FX play out a speaker housed in the station's main saucer section.
