I hated the four-foot filming miniature of the Enterprise-D. Every shot featuring that bulked-up, over-textured model screams, "Toy!"

I think it would be fun to see the ship shots renovated to use something that more closely resembled the six-footer.
If whoever did it had it available to them, they'd almost certainly use the CGI model created for These Were The Voyages... for cost reasons.

And wasn't one of the problems with the 6ft model that it left no place for Ten Forward (which is meant to be the furthest forward point on the ship, at the very front of the saucer; and wasn't invented until S2)?
Nah. The six-footer had windows at that location. The pattern just didn't match the windows of the set.

The Ten Forward set had windows like this:

narrow wide narrow (port)
gap
narrow wide narrow (center)
gap
narrow wide narrow (starboard)

(I'm ignoring the extra windows visible beyond the set's side walls.)

Contrast that with the six-footer's window arrangement, shown in detail in the first image of this page.
