Although I grew to appreciate the 1701D over time, she originally looked top-heavy and bulky with nacelles that were too small.
I would agree with this, my first impression of the Galaxy Class was she looked top heavy (and yes I know in space it doesn't matter). Conversely the Soverign Class first Impression was that's more like it.
Though one can't help wonder if the TV sereis had the Soverign Class and the movies changed it to a Galaxy Class would some of the fans have had the same reaction that they did when the Galaxy Class was replaced by the Soverign Class.
For the TMP era movies, we just had an update of the TV seires Class.
