Anyone else hate the "New" Deep Space 9 design?
 
I had one look at the new Deep Space 9 novel covers and thought, "Why didn't they use the spider docks or utopia planetia parking station design, Jupiter Station with new decals, or even a Regula-Class station with a couple of Nemesis style construction/repair units sandwiched between them?" WHY OH WHY this?

I agree with you that the new DS9 is fugly, but it's a fitting design considering how badly Trek Lit seems to handling the Prime universe. They have some good ideas, they are just executing them terribly.

The exact same thread is also being discussed in the DS9 forum.

New Station = Fugly
Old Station = Classic

Nothing can beat Terok Nor DS9 in terms of station design for pure bad-assery.

Nope, I love the new design. Terok Nor was one of the ugliest things I've ever seen in oldTrek.

Yes. That huge freakin window they put in the design is just an invitation to sudden and catastrophic explosive decompression.

that assuming it's made of glass (or other breakable material), which it doesnt *have* to be.

Sure. And the Titanic was "unsinkable".

Exactly. That material may be transparent, but it could be as hard as the rest of the station's hull.

It's basicly how the original DS9 was designed for the show, untill one of the producers said make sure those pylons DON'T connect on top and down below, and we have a winner. And Terok Nor/DS9 was born.
