A followup to yesterday's post...

PNQ: How do Klingon Birds of Prey dock at DS9?

Here's a ship at the docking ring.

Here's the front of a Bird of Prey.

The circle in front has always been depicted as a torpedo launcher.

In fact, I'm not seeing anything remotely like a docking hatch on the "head" of a Bird of Prey, not even the emergency hatch that was used in The Voyage Home.

On this view there might be something like a turbolift connection on the top of the "head", but once again, DS9 doesn't have anything to connect to it!

And for that matter, how would Federation or Klingon turbolifts be compatible with Cardassian ones?
