Re: 10-Forward Enterprise(s) size(s) monkey wrench in debate?

I'd say it's the person that created the ship in all its details, unless "canonically" certain details were revisioned later on-screen which isn't the case here.

I mean, how could the TNG Tech Manual author seriously claim to know the function of an item better than the person who had actually created and put it there?

And IIRC ever since TMP, illuminated deflector "thingies" had a blue color, while windows or the like were usually featured with a white color.
