There already is. It's in the Timeline. It's in the book. And Leviathan already posted about it. The "skin" of the ship is a classic/retro skin. The rest of the ship is an up to date ship. It's the entry in the timeline that talks about MODULAR ship design that the starfleet corps of engineers came up with. It's the way all ships now have a framework that captains now equip. The framework is the same. The captain makes the choices. All up to date and modern and 25th century choices. The ship's skin, or appearance, can be up to date (like the Nomad) or retro (like the Constitution).
But the ship is still a modern 25th century ship.
This already is in place. Is already working. There's no need to create any more ideas on how to make this possible since it's already possible.
