Yep. I'm afraid I prefer some of the fan designs we saw on this forum last year.

I've just realized that, although the large Galaxy-class-shuttlebay docking arms are a cool idea, they'd never fit the Enterprise-E. The nacelles would get in the way.

It doesn't exactly look functional.

I'm still not getting where you think the Galaxy's docked with the station?

But with how the Galaxy class ship is in front of the station, I've got to wonder just how close the station is to Bajor's sun (with the shadows it looks like the sun is under the core, but closer than where the old DS9 was.

^^If it's not docked, then it's far too close to the station than would be necessary or even safe.

Re: DRGIII posted the cover for his The Fall novel on FB.

The Galaxy Class was originally supposed to dock to a station using the connectors along the back of the connecting pylon under the two shuttlebays. Probert's sketches showed this feature but it was never seen on screen. Those connectors allowed materials transfer and also appear in the same area on Voyager as well.

The new station is OK but the huge rings should be doing something interesting, perhaps that will be explained in the books.

Via the large connectors (which attach to the shuttlebay) on either side of the ring here:

Re: DRGIII posted the cover for his The Fall novel on FB.

Those look more like thrusters or observation areas.

Plus with the Galaxy, from pictures of the neck that I've looked at it appears that the connector was never made a part of the deign, so the ship can't dock with the station (below those shuttle bays you've got lots of windows and the impulse engine, but nothing that looks like a hatch or other connector). I think the Galaxy's just in the shot because its got some tech that can only be used from the shuttle bay (such as a Canadarm) that's being used to install something.. I don't think the ship's docked.

Re: DRGIII posted the cover for his The Fall novel on FB.

As I recall, the umbilical connects were along the dorsal spine, between the main Impulse engine and the aft torpedo launcher; not above the Impulse drive.

Voyager had a similar arrangement along its dorsal engineering hull.

In other words they were on the top of the engineering hull, behind the neck, between the nacelles. The Galaxy's not even angled to connect that way in the picture, so I don't think it's docked.

I wonder if Revelations... will feature a fold-out with schematics, like they did for Vanguard and Titan.

If they do I just hope they include some kind of digital version for use e-book reader. What did they do for Vanguard: Harbinger, and Titan: Sword of Damocles?
