I think the thing we can all agree on is the fact that the USS Vengeance from Star Trek Into Darkness was awesome looking.
I was pretty underwhelmed. It looked like something out of Berman Trek. It was cool seeing it crash, though.
Yes! Why are we back to gunmetal gray? Definitely felt like a step backward for the franchise.

If they wanted to go for something truly impressive, how about black? I'm thinking about current stealth technology, moreover the Monitor from Shatner's novels. Consider the awesomeness of a ship difficult for an enemy to see even under normal running. Cinematic challenges (how could the audience see it?) could be addressed by sunlight/starlight reflecivity... or just shots where thing self illuminates, or for dramatic purposes, you don't know its even there until you notice something obstructing distant stars. With some imagination, there's tons of potential here. Wasted IMO on Vengeance, which looked like a generic Sovereign design.
