Aquarius ventilation shaft

On Aquarius, there’s a ventilation shaft that runs across the center of the map, underneath the little room which itself is underneath where the camo/overshield spawns. On the side you peer into the vents and it looks like an area that you could fit into if the vent covers weren’t in the way. Is there a way to get in there?

If not, I wonder if maybe once we get Forge, we’ll see that the vent covers are editable/removable.
