Looking at the bow of the secondary hull of TOS Enterprise, I wonder if a comparison can be made between it, and the BQQ-2???

You missed my point - in essence - form follows function. Such that the spherical bow sonar array of the early 1960s submarines, the BQQ-2, a manually controlled device, with some 1500 individual active/passive sonar elements, was able to do quite a bit. But it relied upon humans to do the work. The more advanced BQQ-5 on the 688 class, used what are now early computers to do even more work. But the interesting thing about the BQQ-5 was that it was limited only by computer power, or the lack there of.

So, I ask again about the bow of the secondary hull of the Enterprise, assume that MJ did his homework, what he could of it, using the BQQ-2 as a jumping off point, what does its design tell us? Versus the requirements of a water(sea) based system. That is, by looking at the bow of the Enterprise's secondary hull, we should be able to use that to tell us about the nature of space warp....
