There was a tug used in DS9...

Ugliest damn thing ever.
It was actually Klingon so I guess it's supposed to be ugly. I like it though. Looks very functional.

Is it? Outside the DS9 Tech Manual, I mean?

I doubt the Norway even has an underside in reality.

I doubt it too.

Actually, it's still debatable whether ships like the Akira are older than the Galaxy class (based on chronological registries), or much newer (based on the design of the ship itself). I myself have been flip-flopping on this issue for years. Presently I'm of the opinion that all four of the FC ship types are new as of FC, even if only because the underside of the Norway class is identical to the Defiant class.
We never see the Noway in any detail.
The registry matters to me because we've never seen new ships get old registries unless it's a renaming. In any case it doesn't matter which pod he choses because FC mucked it up.

And the registries of the FC ships were not made by Mr. Okuda. They were made by ILM's VFX department (the same guys who made the names/registries for the Kelvin-kitbash fleet in Star Trek '09).
