I would also like to be able to pilot my ship right inside ESD and manually dock
I wouldn't mine seeing that if you had the option at the doors to go into your own instance to do it but only once per day and it rewarded some sort of DOff CXP or something of that nature.
As for the size of ESD I personally think at its current size it seem insignificant and I would love to see a re-sized version of the current ESD that made it about 1.5 times bigger but that's just my opinion.
Mobile Suit Gundam, near the end of the One Year War. The Duchy of Zeon drops a space colony on Earth, landing on Sydney Australia vaporizing 16% of the continent's land mass a detonation force of 60,000 megatons. The Hiroshima A Bomb was 2 MT
The Colonies are a good deal larger than ESD, about 16 miles across while ESD should be about 5000 meters. It would make a good size dent if it did fall.
DS9 by comparison is 1452 meters, a quarter the size of ESD.

Skylab already fell on Australia, they've prepared.
I've seen the piece of Skylab that murdered that Australian cow in its case in Huntsville. It's about the size of a 55 gallon barrel. ESD deorbiting would make Praxis look like a firecracker.
Seriously though, it doesn't make practical sense to have that big mushroom interior to dock ships when all the drydocks are just skeletons. The only reason it's there is so they could put the money shot of the battle damaged Enterprise limping back from Genesis with everyone oohing and aahing in the movie.

K7 is ... Galaxy Class fits easily in Shuttlebay - TOO BIG,
has odd green nebula around it that doesnt even look good,
while in TOS and DS9 there was only black space
AND the interior resembles nothing that we've seen in either episode
(is ONE Station with TOS interior set too much to ask for?)
if any station in-game needs serious attention it is K7
DS9 could do with some downscaling, add it's proper (animated) weaponry
and the Spawnpoints are a mess gamewide anyway, everytime i warp out of DS9 i push other players away that camp the spawnpoint and get instantly pushed away myself by the next dude warping out, then fighting my way through 3 ships blocking my path .... etc. etc.
and in Sector Space you barely can see DS9 behind all the Dreadnoughts and Carriers.
