You know it will. But the bigger question...what will it look like?
It will look something like this...
I'd like to see the original 1701 used. You know, THIS one.
Hopefully via the constellation.
So far, they haven't "reimagined" anything we would already have seen. Sarek looks more or less like Sarek and dresses like him. No Klingon character has been seen outside DSC. Any ship new to this show is a ship never seen elsewhere, either. So in terms of consistency, this could go either way.
On the other hand, Star Trek has never reimagined Kirk's ship. Instead, four distinct spinoffs and two movie series have shown the original 1960s style contraption exactly as is, regardless of whether they were filmed in the 1970s, the 1980s, the 1990s or the 2000s. Heck, even the one movie series that showed us a different, "parallel" Enterprise had the original displayed hanging from the ceiling of a character (in a scene that was cut for unrelated reasons). So...
When we eventually see the Enterprise, I expect it'll look like Stella did, and be that awful 60s sci fi aesthetic.
I hope you realize the degree to which you've just casually triggered a sizable chunk of Trek's fanbase.
I expect it to keep the same shape, but updated.to fit Discovery's aesthetic.
Dislike the original KT Connie design as much as you like, but it still kept the same basic shape as the TOS and Refit Connie.
You should be able to look at it, and say "Yes that could be/is a constitution"
Hopefully something like this:
As for when, I'm guessing season two.
Not a fan of the front of the engineering section on that design, but the rest is great.
I'm looking forward to this inevitable event. Whether or not I'll like it is another question.
Who made this again?
Gabe Koerner, of Trekkies fame. He currently works on The Orville.
I;m not sure if or when we would see a Constitution class ship, let alone the 1701, but this really does look great. A really magnificent re-imagining of the original.
It looks good when you can't see the nacelles. Speaking of which, how might the nacelles look?
When they need a subscriber boost on All-Access.
They're building a new model, but it won't be ready until Tuesday
I'll get me coat.
I'd guess loads of self-illumination due to how they render the images versus clearly using a studio model. New hull coloring/aztecing of some kind (probably that pearlescent white the 09 ENT has or the DSC grey/silver). Visible phaser banks, possibly adding a window, new starfleet banners, and more than likely re-tuning the hull profile in general to look more organic on screen compared to its 1960's counterpart. Hanzhefu has the absolute best renders in my mind for a good baseline. The profile is still clearly the Constitution's and he even captures elements of both the Cage-era Connie as well as bringing in some TMP/09 vibes. The compiled photos below I think make-up the best starting point to re-imagining the Connie for use in DSC>

Too smooth. The new Enterprise will have lots of doohickeys sticking out every which way. Think the new D7, except hopefully Enterprise will still be recognizable. Now, lol, imagine for a second, lol, that they completely re-imagine Constitution class in the way they did the D7. I know, I know. They would never radically change such an icon ship as Enterprise, right, right? Or WOULD they?
And it definitely appear at the end of Season 1 finale as part of a cliffhanger. Search your feelings, you know it to be true.
