After all the discussion of the hidden room in COD, I am reminded of a real hidden room on a US Naval Ship. Some time after the USS Enterprise aircraft carrier (CVAN65) was put into service, some crew members were exploring the ship. They found what seemed to be an anomaly. There seemed to be a space they could not access. They could find their way all around it but could not find a door. After much hunting, measuring, pounding on walls, they were convinced that something was there. They finally convinced the ships captain and he authorized the cutting of a hole with an acetylene torch. They did so and when they entered, they were amazed. They found a fully equipped machine shop with all the latest in machinery and tools. However, there were no doors anywhere in the compartment and no hatches on the floor or overhead (navy talk for ceiling). Apparently all of the equipment was installed and tools, etc were installed before the bulkheads (walls) were welded in place. Why someone never noticed there were no doors, I have no idea.
This may be a myth, but I heard the story from several sailors who had been stationed on Enterprise. The Enterprise was a "floating city" so one wonders if there were other rooms never found??

Very interesting, calroger, but I don't wonder about that at all, and as you're suspecting already, I am very certain that there have been most probably many more 'hidden or secret rooms/halls/chambers' with special armory/tools and other high-tech equipment to be prepared for all possible emergency situations/operations etc., so that no one would put their hands on it beforehand or at all ... I mean, The USS Enterprise (CVAN 65), later USS Enterprise (CVN 65), was, as they say
Here's a more comprehensive Wiki description with history ...
So, additional secret equipment and armory, maybe sponsored by Mrs. W. B. Franke, who sponsered the whole construction, or maybe through tax dollars lol and thus kept more secret, it doesn't matter, they just wanted to be prepared for all possible circumstances, or maybe that was to be secretly delivered somewhere else ... Hey, we all know what they're all doing and have been doing since forever lol ... However, it has served for a long time, and as it's been said on the Wiki page
Really, very interesting how you associate the secret rooms in D'ni with anything or even military stuff in RL ... Yeah, but hey, calroger, see you maybe tomorrow at the Wall Tournament ...
I'd like to add and thus take away the mystery of those secret or hidden rooms and areas lol by assuming that those are just by Can already prepared areas and story elements, they just hadn't the chance to develop further and provide and open to the public ...
I’ve read a similar story about a house, and ships are routinely thoroughly inspected, so it’s most likely a myth. Spare equipment is stored in locked rooms, not in sealed ones
Maybe OT, but I did find a showcase about real hidden rooms
They discovered the ship's gremlin's workshop.
Sailors tell a lot of stories when on shore leave. Stories of mermaids, giant squids or the "Klabautermann". This one is a leaky as other stories.
