Lower the saucer (by getting rid of the neck - well, shortening it significantly) and flip the nacelle arm thingy upside down. Always wondered how that would look. (Maybe add some elements from the Centaur design from DS9...)

Forbin beat you to it.
AWESOME! THANKS!! (I really just wanted to see what it would look like! Cool addition of the AWACS-style sensor, because it provides a justification for the flipped nacells and maybe even the lower primary hull...)

Again, THANKS!!

ETA: Forbin, have you ever considered a Enterprise-B Excelsior refit/variant/whatever version of this? The repositioned impulse engines would move the impulse exaust away from the AWACS "jammer" thingy -- which could also house sensors for long-term/long-range pure science missions...(though I've always wondered what the housing for the original impluse engines are used for now in that design...unless you go with the hanger/cargo bay idea. And I suppose that you could, since it's a different ship...hummm...)
