Re: Unofficial art challenge for DS9! (SPOILERS FOR TP: RAISE THE DAW
I think that's stretching it a bit to be honest. It's only really the pylons that give that impression IMO; and the ovoid Bajoran design is far more prevalent.
Regarding the "sense of motion" concern that has been commented on, perhaps if the design were turned on its (current) head? The station would then have the appearance of the Bajoran insignia from the PoV of the wormhole itself, and the Prophets/Celestial Temple - which I imagine would appeal more to the Bajorans...
For those determined to contort yourselves into knots so as to include every minor production flub as gospel, and shoehorn it into "cannnonnnnn": STOP. I don't have all day to waste on here; I quite like enjoying real life thankyouverymuch.
