I suppose the question is what kind of model design is going to replace those two shots there...
Personally, I'm OK with either design, both have their plus'... not so sure about a third design, though, but it'll depend on the look. I hope they give us some kind of preview so that we can comment and possibly influence their decision-making as far as how 'accurate' to keep things...
This is going to be a bit different from TOS-R, after all. TOS-R was done relatively quickly and relatively secretly. Most of us were caught flat-footed when they started airing the eps. For TNG-R, the stakes are higher, since more money and resources are involved by necessity, and the fandom's eye is watching this project very keenly. It seems to me that the best course of action is to involve the fandom in the process, if for no other reason than to increase the number of us who will actually BUY the sets to justify the cost and possibly allow them to give the same treatment to DS9 and Voyager (not that Voyager probably deserves it, but DS9 definitely does).
Except there is no official word on the project yet, no one has seen one scene, and no one will hear anything until those first 4 episodes are done. By that point the CGI models will be done and they will be sprinting through episodes just as fast as TOS-R(if not faster).
