There's no point trying to justify any of this as there's inconsistencies all over the place.
For one, the cargo bay/holding tank set is WAY too small, the cargo bay door exterior mock-up doesn't correspond to any exterior detail on the BoP miniature, which is presumably the same door that Sulu lowered the transparent aluminium through, which makes that impossible too.
In fact that whole movie, is ironically the least reliable for scale reference.
Point of interest, how wide is golden gate park?

Google maps - Golden Gate Park

It looks pretty big, but I guess you're limited to the cleared areas. Of course, I have no idea if this is even close to how the park looked in 1986.

It rivals New York's Central Part for size. There are many, many different places Sulu could tuck a 110-metre BoP without interfering with anything. [Smile]

Actually, I just had a snoop round the place on Google Earth using the ruler and the only open space I can find that's big enough for the 110m BoP is that open area in the NW quarter, right next to JFK Drive.
Not that it probably matters much, but is there anyway of knowing which part they filmed in? I understand we have at least on Frisco native on the board.
