As I thought during the DS9 episode, it looks like someone ripped the design directly from the album cover of "Olias of Sunhillow".

Aesthetically, it's quite pleasing and makes a change from nacelles. Now how are they going to fit it in the box?
Good question. And it has been answered by the man himself. The model requires a little bit of self-assembly. The wings are detached while in the box.

That said, this is still very much a prototype. They're still playing with the paint job. Many people were suggesting to use a metallic flake paint for the wings. And that the "pod" was too yellow.
