The open area behind the deflector is commonly assumed to be a hangar, but it probably isn't, since it's open to space and doesn't have a flat floor. One of the tech manuals said it was an access area to cargo bay doors. There are shuttle bay doors visible (depending on which configuration it is), at the aft above the center line, much like the Constitution class, and at the back of the saucer near the impulse engines. They're nothing particularly special, the saucer doors are at most two decks high and the aft is a bit wider but no taller than the constitution's.
