So basically in your story we get the following:

Trip's still undercover
The Aftermath of the War.
Starfleet as we know it today coming together
Maybe. You'll know what you get when you get it.


Do we get to see a new Enterprise get commissioned as well?
Canon makes it clear that NCC-1701 is the first Federation starship named Enterprise, and it's generally accepted that it was commissioned in 2245.


I'm also curious to see how it went from NX to NCC and why...
The "NX" designation is generally used for experimental vessels, test platforms for new technologies. The first time we ever saw the designation was in The Search for Spock, where the Excelsior as a transwarp testbed was designated NX-2000. But when we saw the Excelsior years later in The Undiscovered Country, equipped with standard warp drive, its registry was NCC-2000.
