Heh...tell that to the engineers that completely rearranged the innards of the TOS Enterprise in TMP. McCoy was right...
Was there really much left of the original Enterprise though?

Re: Polar Lights NX-01 "Refit"

You asked if it would have been cheaper to build a new ship vs rearrange an existing one, and there was already precedence for this. I suspect that there may have been pieces of the internal hull support structure and space frame still in place from the TOS E, but everything else, from the outer skin to the hallways, cabins, engines, shuttebay, etc., was changed. "This is almost entirely new Enterprise" said Capt. Decker. That was a completely true statement as far as I could tell. If anything, they went further with that E than they did with Archer's.

Someone at Starship Modeler just finished building the kit.

That answers the shuttle bay question. Only two of the bays are blocked.

The refit is named the "Columbia Class" and both the NX-01 Enterprise and NX-06 Endeavour have been refitted to it during or after the Romulan war.
What is the extra addition body section supposed to do for the ship anyway? I can see an advantage to having more internal space. But given that the ship retains the original twin warp engines wouldn't speed, range and malnuverablity be seriously reduced?
In the novels, the secondary hull is nested within the second half of the warp field so it doesn't affect warp flight.

It now holds shuttlebays in the sides, the new warp 6 engine and engineering (the old engineering section is reused for more mechanical changes to the saucer) and a new deflector assembly. The old one is reduced to a secondary spare.

That's still awfully awkward. You'd be dropping shuttles into the secondary hull, more or less.

Yeah, I can't see those other two openings being anything more than drydock cargo loading areas.
