Re: Oberth Class the missing link between Enterprise and Reliant

A little observation: When Geordi examines the interiors of the Tsiolkovsky we can notice one of these Burke chairs, last time seen in TOS!

I couldn't say whether the set decorators were asked to feature a Burke chair to suggest an "older" Starfleet vessel or whether one of the crew members just loved "old stuff", but I felt that little detail to be worth mentioning.

Another observation, inspired by a TMP design vs. TOS design debate, which hadn't been mentioned yet, is a characteristic of late 23rd Federation starships the Grissom lacked: the patchwork style Aztec pattering the refit Enterprise, Reliant and Excelsior featured.
