(Below) Moving clock-wise around ops from Sisko’s office brings us to O’Brien’s engineering station. Th engineering station was the largest station in Ops, and dominated the set. The idea was that keeping the station in one piece was a major story point, so Herman made it intentionally complex.
this is simply beautiful, DS9 has always been my favorite Trek, mostly due to the fact that the station was falling apart when they first moved in. Then in a later season, they upgraded all the weapons, and shit got REAL.
