Wasn't an Oberth seen docked at Deep Space Nine once or twice? Perhaps the port was added for that (if indeed that's where it attaches - my memory's kinda foggy)
Yes, the one time (and only one time) that an Oberth appears in Deep Space Nine was in the pilot episode. Besides the one getting destroyed at Wolf 359, the ship Dax and Bashir arrive in is also an Oberth. However, the ship doesn't use a docking port or pylon, but just hovers underneath the station.

Yes. I think this becomes obvious when you look at Tsiolkovsky's
erroneous "Kirk Era" registry on the pod (NCC-640)
compared to the smaller and longer TNG and DS9 five-digit registries.
And then there's the Starfleet penannt on the nacelles. Compared to the average size on other Federation ships it looks rather oversized and overblown for a vessel vastly exceeding 120 meters in size, doesn't it?
Since when has there ever been any canon rule about lettering and pennant sizes in relation to the size of the ship they are on? If the Oberth is 150 meters instead of 120, the size of the lettering and pennants wouldn't be appreciably larger anyway.
