    Instead of LCARS it would have 3D holographic touch air displays just like the ship in PIC.

    I don’t think they will reimagine the ship’s exterior if it ever shows up again, they will recreate as it was, probably with some slight errors (such as the three Bussard collectors instead of two, which is either a big error or something intentionally done for the dream sequence).

    If the internals ever shows up at all it will be for a flashback and I expect them to recreate them with CGI, as they have done for ten forward.

    I can very much imagine the reason they redesigned (and recreated) the TOS Enterprise for DISC is because they were already planning for SNW and well, they couldn't use that very outdated 60s bridge for a whole new show, as much as a certain handful of fans might have liked that.

    Unless they plan on creating a new show set on the Enterprise D (which they aren't) I see no reason why they'd redesign or recreate it.
    If we see it for some reason (timeline hopping, dream, time travel) on LD (which is, imho, the show most likely to show it) then it'd probably look like it did on TNG, with the characters commenting on how "old fashioned" it looks.

    I seem to remember from a behind the scenes that it was mostly CGI. I might be wrong, though.

    as far as I know there were no plans for SNW until way into Discovery’s Season 2’s broadcast. Totally agree with what you write afterwards.

    They have the D that they used in the hd remaster. It's still around. Even the miranda, and excelsior in a good cgi. Even ds9, runabout, and defiant.
