Well, that sure was fun, I can't wait until we get to the Pfhor levels. :)

The first odd thing that I noticed about this level, is the switch in the AR
room. All it seems to do is turn the light in the room on and off. First, it
doesn't seem like Bungie to just drop useless switches around their levels,
and second, what's the purpose of turning the lights on and off?

The two "secret" rooms both needed to be grenade-hopped to. The first one
was between the two dark rooms leading to the room that you raise the steps
from, and it had a bunch of AR ammo and two invisible compilers. The second
was in the room that you drop into from the ceiling, and all it had was an
infravision chip.

Towards the end, there is a strange triangle object with pillars on each of its points. The floor is blue, and lit-up. As far as I can tell, its a monster activation poly. Has anybody else noticed this/know what it is?

One of the coolest features of this level is the ambush in the hallway leading to the final room. The compilers come at you from the back, and the fighters from the front. That can really suck on TC, because the hallway is so narrow, making it difficult to dodge those darn seeking bolts.

In the last room, there is terminal about doors. Why doors? Is it because the Pfhor lack Door Technology(TM) and are hoping to steal valuable corporate secrets? How do the Pfhor understand English anyway? I know they have translators, but how would they have English translators if they haven't made contact with humans before? Could Durandal have sent them translators? Am I making a big deal out of nothing?
