There is no "for me" about it. It's in the show.

for me enterprise j is not canon
I think the Enterprise-J is about as canon as the "All Good Things..." Enterprise-D and the future depicted in that episode and in VOY's "Endgame."

1. Connie Refit (TOS movies)
2. Sovereign-class (TNG movies)
3. Akira-class
4. Excelsior Refit (Ent-B)
5. Mogai-class (NEM - one of the only good things to come out of that movie)
6-10: most any non-Fedie, non-Klingon, non-freighter post-TNG ship (Even though VOY and ENT are mostly junk, the ship designs were almost all great.)

the ugliest enterprise ever
Not to me, and I'm sure I'm not alone in that.

I'd say the ugliest is the Enterprise-J class. Compared to that, the Sovereign-class is absolutely beautiful.
To be fair though, since all we see on screen of the Enterprise J was a schematic on a monitor screen, all they felt the need to do was just take the NX-01 and stretch it out.

Even as a schematic it was ugly.

There is a whole story behind the design, including how it was a mating between the NX-01 and a never-before-seen unused design that had to be done "quick and dirty" due to time constraints. Designer Doug Drexler went back and refined the design afterward, creating different angles and even making a homemade animation of what the ship would look like in flight, but it still looks like an awkward pizza cutter.

I'm not listing 10 but this ship kicks butt.

I also like the Phobos class and the Copernicus from "Blood and Fire".
