Well, Needle is a civilian ship, so there's no reason why it would resemble Starfleet designs, beyond form following function -- though as we've seen, form following function doesn't seem to be much of an impediment on ship design in the Trekverse.
How large would this ship be?
Not very. Just enough for a dozen-ish people in close quarters, their research equipment, powerful engines (by civilian standards), sensors, and other essentials. At a guess, maybe 3-4 times the size of a runabout.
