Default NX Class Ships in DS9…

I was watching DS9, last episode "Tears of the Prophets" of Season 6 and noticed this ship during the battle sequence. Can anyone tell me the class of the ship and/or its name?

I have to say I was extremely surprised to see that this class/style would filter back through to the original NX class used in the series Enterprise with only few cosmetic changes.

I believe that would be the Akira class.

While I'm on the subject of DS9, I have to say that its fast becoming my preferred Trek series because of the varied subject matter and depth of character development. Great stuff indeed!

It's a great series, certainly the most in depth one

Quark, Odo and Kira are my preferred characters on DS9 followed by O'Brien, Dax and Garak.

Quark, Garak and Dukat are all great supporting characters. The strong supporting cast is one of the shows great strengths

I have to agree. I wasn't overly enjoyed with the Ferengi at first, but I think they in a sense made the show more enjoyable with some great episodes focused around them. Quark steals the show and I've grown to like him more than the others.

Quark is one of my favorite Trek characters of all the series.
