DS9: Docking Ports make no sense

The DS9 station's docking ports make absolutely no sense. See, most ships seem to dock at the main docking ring. These ports are connected to ports in the bow of the ships. However, it doesn't seem to make any sense for certain ships. I'm not sure if it's laziness on the part of the production staff, or something else. But I'm gonna go with laziness, since they couldn't even be bothered to create shield bubbles for battle scenes.   

Are the Klingons just supposed to somehow crawl through the photon torpedo tube to get into the station? Poor Klingons.   

 
Does anybody see a docking port in the bow of the Miranda? I don't. 

 
Apparently the main deflector dish can double as a port.

Klingons are badass like that.

For the bird of prey and miranda, there could be a port somewhere, maybe the only ports they use are small hatches since teleporters are the main mode of transportation.
For the Defiant: I got nothing. Probably lazyness. I think I remember seeing ships dock on the side like they normally should at one point though.
