Regarding the scene in "Court Martial", note that the other officers were situated so that you never got a straight-on view of their insignia (I know, it was the same as Kirk's, but play along for a bit), whereas Kirk was right there, squared up with the camera, with that arrowhead insignia as plain as day.

Blame my Swiss cheese memory, but the point remains. The intent was for each ship to have its own insignia (and crying about how they'd run out of viable designs is kind of a slap in the face of the designers, doncha think?).

And I happen to have liked what they came up with for the Defiant for "In A Mirror, Darkly...".
