@Cryptic Why are the new starfleet ships so ugly so un-starfleet???

The Defiant takes all the classic elements of Starfleet ships and compacts them into a small destroyer type ship.
It is very much a Trek ship.
Things like the Imperial on the other hand aren't. Some parts of it are decent, but the complete ship is an ugly monster. It also violates one of Roddenberry's key rules by having the bridge set far back from the center of the saucer.
Don't even get me started on the DSSVs, the Nimbus is actually the least objectionable and most Trek-like of those. Well aside from it's ridiculous zeppelin pod.
