Why destroy the station in the first place? Besides didn't they tow Empok Nor into the Bajor System (it was a DS9/SCE crossover)? Couldn't they have just activated it and had it become Deep Space 9-A?

IIRC, Empok Nor wasn't repairable as a whole, it was just useful for spare parts.

What I want to know about the pylons on the new DS9 is, what exactly are they for? When the pylons on the old station didn't connect at the top, it's obvious what they were for - starship docking. Do the pylons on the new station stand for anything except decoration? They don't connect to anything, do they?
There are docking ports along the length of the pylons.

Re: Anyone else hate the "New" Deep Space 9 design?

From the images it looks like there are only ports near the base, two on each side. There might be some on the outside edge, but you can't really see any in the images that are floating around.

The cover of "A Ceremony of Losses" shows these ports side ports. I wonder what that thing at the base of the pylon is, maybe a weapons emplacement?

Apparently those rings above and below the central core are magnetically suspended defence rings.

I like it, I have no problem with the new designs. New E, love it. New DS9, A+.
Long live DS9!

I don't hate it. I'm not a huge fan of it, but they certainly could have done worse. They also could have done better.
