While perhaps not this design exactly this is the sort of departure from the familiar that ENT should have had the guts to go with. It would have helped to make the show more credible as pre TOS and helped set it apart stylistically from what came before.
Not really on topic but the OP rolled with comments... While I agree this one is stylistically more pleasing and dramatic looking, the "original" has a very basic utilitarian elegance to it. It is a sphere and a cylinder. It's incredibly practical and lends credibility to the more complex evolution in starship design... The basic workhorse Daedalus, to the larger and more complex Enterprise, to the incredibly large and organic Galaxy class...
