A change in "look", no matter how thorough, is no sign of a discontinuity in Star Trek, by the standards of Star Trek.

True. Additionally, this is sci-fi, where changes in the design or surface details of a ship within a short amount of time are not a sign of continuity problems or reimagining the entire series. It was no more reimagining (because it was not) than the very 80's-design sensibilities of the panels/controls of 2010's Leonov were because of its obvious differences to the technology seen aboard Discovery from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

In 2010, the Leonov had be under construction in the same era as Discovery, but the tech of the former screams an advancement of decades (as in the real world passage of time), but we accept it, because in sci-fi, the impossible is possible.
