Based on the context of the image, NCC-1701, I think it is fairly safe to assume that this is from one of the lower decks of the Enterprise, perhaps Engineering.

Hmmm, a steampunk enterprise

As for the suggestion that this is the appearance during construction, the two images aren't just a visual "skin" but a major dimensional reconstruction, implausible.

My best guesses are that they are different parts of the ship or a completely different ship or building / station.
Any other thoughts?

On the final frontier Scotty was using the large corrodes to move around that had a bunch of utility conduits lining the walls allowing him to break out Kirk, bones, Spock. Their probably in the boules of the ship the Enterprise D had them. They only showed them in one episode

Are you referring to Jeffies tubes and such? If so, this in the top photo is a large corridor, not a J-tube or an access duct.

I can see the merits of this being some below-decks Engineering section, though, as several have suggested. Though I'm still guessing it's an early-era ship's interior.

that's a possibility but in the top picture the ceiling looks too narrow

I figure that the top one could indeed be the Enterprise, too - just a different section. The curved corridor makes me think of the saucer section, where curves would be necessary, while the exposed pipes in the other corridor (which is actually curved too :/) remind me of the 'engineering' corridors seen on the Enterprise-A at various times, such as when Scotty hilariously smacks his head on a pipe in one of Star Trek V's many outrageous comedy highlights.

Any fans of the computer game Portal here? Notice the Weighted Companion Cube icon on the left side of the dark corridor?

I'll say it again. This does not look like a photograph or film still or screen cap to me. It looks like a painting. I'm betting it's early draft concept art.

Unsurprisingly, I liked the darker/perhaps-concept-art corridor far better than the Tantive IV-esque corridor.
