For example, how big is this ship? The markings along the edge, if considered to be windows comparable to the Enterprise's would suggest a rim that's three decks thick.
That's kinda what I'm thinking based on the exterior.

How big a crew is there? What sort of facilities are there for them? Is the whole ship as cramped looking as the bridge we see in "Balance of Terror?" I wonder how closly riding in one of these would compare to a mid-twentieth Century diesel sub...
That's anyone's guess. But I suppose if the only part we see is the bridge and extended it to the rest of the ship then living space would be pretty tight like a submarine. Probably the fuel, engines, cloaking device and super weapon takes up the rest of the volume of the ship.

Do you suppose the TNG era artificial singularity power source was already in use during the 2260's?
Doubtful. The TNG AQS was supposedly able to run practically forever. The TOS Romulan BOP had limited fuel and had to juggle her fuel usage between engines and weapons.

What might the internal layout be like? Are there any small craft, like shuttles and such? Can the ship land?
Dunno. Any guess could work. Do they even have transporters at that time or was it all part of the trade with the Klingons to get new tech?
