    I edited out the link to the TNG Technical Manual, since it seems to be a .PDF of the entire book and it's a copyrighted tie-in work.

    no problem, i looked at it and saw that it was voluminous at the least, so i ordered a hard copy.

    This is an interview with Andrew Probert, the genius behind Enterprise-D http://trekplace.com/ap2005int01.html
    The part about ENT-D starts around halfway. Admittedly it is not written from an in-universe perspective, but it reveals a lot about what certain details were supposed to represent.

    Man, I love that ship :)
