What is "fortress of a cranium"?

What could it be called "fortress of a cranium"?
Is it in the movie?
It is mentioned in the novel "Tron" 1982, chapter 2, fragment 3, paragraph 3:
"It flew lightly, quickly, an inverted U of armor-plated battleship, shaped from field-bonded polyhedrons, its turret-head dangerously alight. Clu wondered if its crew, there in that fortress of a cranium, had identified him yet."

They're talking about the top of the recognizer where the pilot drives. It looks like the "cranium" of a robot, and there was a character in THE BLACK HOLE that had a similar design to a Recognizer.

And I thought, maybe this is a hint of the Calvary/Golgotha of the crucifixion of Christ. Because, there are references to this motive. The very name "Calvary/Golgotha" means "Head/Skull".

It's possible since TRON has tons of religious and other metaphors and symbols. . .
