I can't really draw or use graphics programs very well, but thankfully, someone else was on my wavelength (or I guess I was on theirs, since they did this before I read this thread), because this is very very close to what I was thinking of.

Speaking of, should they be ion engines?
If we're trying to come as close to current tech understanding as possible while still building something that functions more or less as the Enterprise, I would think Alcubierre drive for long distance (warp), and ion engines for "impulse". Our ship isn't going to be pulling any fighter plane maneuvers on ion drive, though - she'll be more like a large naval vessel, for sure.
