An example of what I'm talking about... http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__...ebulaDS9-2.jpg
Even by the standards of the shot u provided DS9 is still smaller in the show than it is in game. I mean I parked my Galaxy r next to the lower pylon just as in that shot and the pylon is HUGE. I get they made it this big for "effect" but it's totally immersion breaking, not to mention it makes for a bad screenshot .

Here's a Galaxy docked in the show http://www.st-wiki.com/images/7/76/Gal_slide5.jpg http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__...ked_at_DS9.jpg

Here's my ship docked http://i733.photobucket.com/albums/w...3-01-24-06.jpg

As you can see, in game the upper pylon is bigger than my saucer which is not the case in the show.
