I remember reading somewhere that it's a license plate from the original "Blues Brothers" movie.

Also in the book The Making of Deep Space Nine from Pocket Books, they showed a couple of drawings of the Erwhon Class and it dosen't look anything like the Raven.

That's because the Raven isn't Erewhon Class. And just because the Raven has an NAR registry (if it does) doesn't mean that it is really old. NAR is probably the Federation prefix for civilian science vessels.

Which then doesn't explain the Sydney-like shuttle/transport seen in ST6 with its registry as NAR-2xxxx.

I think you got an extra 'x' in there. It was only in the twenty-thousands, right? Not the two-hundred-thousands?

And how else would one pronounce "Erewhon", other than three syllables?

Sisko pronounced it "air-waun". And yes, he did say it in the episode, so it's definitely canon. Santa Maria was Erewhon class.

The Erewhon in the Making of DS9 book? Funny, I had that one for about 4 years and I never noticed it. Can you tell me the page?

There seems to be a disagreement over the class name of the raven. I never remembered the name being mentioned by sisko. Maybe it never had a class name?

Well, there's a reason why Sisko never mentioned the Raven's class name.
