||I have to say it- what crap! The TNG manual did it right, and with a few minor deviations managed to capture everything essential from the series. The DS9 manual, apart from the flashy graphics, is way off- even the specs for familiar vessels are terrible. I must conclude that this book was not edited. Wild speculations go hand-in-hand with inconsistent blueprints (the Defiant gets two different internal arrangements in the book) and errors that any reasonably consistent viewer of the series is bound to pick up. Give me the blueline drawings and thoughtfulness of the TNG manual any day.
