I believe that "Enterprise-class" is used in this sentence as a compound adjective, not as a proper noun.
Yes: "Enterprise-class" being used grammatically as a compound adjective to simply describe a kind of starship--rather than being used grammatically as a proper noun and actual title of a particular starship classification is probably the correct interpretation. With that understanding, it's easy enough to not feel beholden to that TMOST comment. And I think a script direction in an actual TOS script shouldn't be so easily discounted.
