I have to chime in in support of Professor Moriarty
: I also thought the previous design was better than the new one - the long, sweeping wedge that rises from the nose and out to direct your view to the nacelles was classic, and tied the various elements of the ship together much better than the current 'triangular' upper deck. I think there are too many longitudanal cuts in the current design, especially after they are bisected by the triangle (frankly, it reminds me too much of the Sovereign
now). Of the current options, I prefer the deflecter in its more forward position, but the name and number also
look better closer to the front (and thus, larger).
