Actually, Diane Carey herself is explicit that the ship has a hexagonal, not octagonal primary hull (p.77 in my 1986 print). Which means that the cover artwork necessarily establishes a pointed bow instead of a flat one!
Exactly. Not only does that ASCII-looking artwork make the ship look like crap, it's also not at all accurate. Boris Vallejo's cover artwork is fantastic and modernizes the design from FJ's original.
