Exactly. It's designed to look stylish, not like a real life ship we'll one explore space with. It screams kewl sci-fi movie, and I can never take it seriously. Plus it looks like the Voyager-A, not an Enterprise. The D's biggest problem is that it was designed for SD screens. Its effect on HD is not as sharp and organic. I'd love for an artist to reinterpret it a bit. The top heaviness is not a problem: this is space. Does the NX-01 look like it's scraping the ground the entire time, not having a body below it? Actually to me it does, part of why I don't like it, but part of what's impressive about the D is that broad gravity-defying saucer. It's the coolest place to work ever. Plus it's brilliant for having a larger saucer and smaller engines; per Probert, that's by design to show how the technology has progressed since ye olde Constitution Class. I love that extra bit of verisimilitude. It makes the universe seem more real.
