Re: Lack of Alien influence in Starfleet ship design...

Also, I noted that the bridge layout of the Andorian battlecruiser in ENT: "Proving Ground" could have been an ancestral influence on the TOS-era bridge layout, with side-by-side helm and navigator stations in front and the stations facing outward rather than inward. Ship designs with nacelles oriented vertically, like the Constellation class, could also be Andorian-influenced, since ENT-era Kumari-class battlecruisers had two vertically stacked inboard warp engines at the rear of the ship.
Also, the ENT Vulcan ships had computer displays which looked a lot like the ones on the classic movie Enterprise, giving one the impression that Starfleet simply decided to switch to a Vulcan OS in the 2270's (and in "Fusion" we even see a wraparound perimeter graphic not unlike those on the new movie Enterprise!)
