I'd change the ownership papers.

Why? Are they soiled?

Re: what would you change of ent refit?

Here are my suggestions to the refit. I like the showy nacelle supports. I might have them cranked close to the base.

I would lengthen the secondary hull up to Balson's dimentions, and make the saucer a tad wider.

Take at look at these: http://imageshack.us/a/img812/5886/ixl.png (Not mine )

I would lengthen the nacelles, and give them the shaved Raan type front end

I would place a smaller impulse deck on the back of the base of the saucer.
The saucer itself would have the impulse deck that the Abbe Interceptor has--but in place of the Abbe's spar hull, I would place aft torpedo/megaphaser tubes betweeen the exhaust vents

Some behind the scenes art:

I'd beef up the fragile neck and nacelle pylons, and make the whole thing bigger.

Thank you, Ryan Church and J.J. Abrams!

There is one thing I'd change:

It needs a sombrero.

Interior? I don't know. I can't say there's anything wrong with it, there's nothing I don't like. Maybe a bit too cold and sterile, but that's not a problem.
The Enteprise doesn't just go out on six moth cruises, people live aboard for good chunks of their lives, so I would make the interior more "home like." Not necessarily the bridge or engineering, but the corridors and the living quarters, and especially the rec room.

Delete the Costco Wholesale cargo hold.

Outside, change the color of the silver hull to a semi-gloss white.

Well I would hope not. They'd eat all the uniforms.

It would be 700+ meters long and more muscular.

Oh wait, that was done 4 years ago.
