Round saucers on new classes of Federation ships simply dont exist im afraid . the design trend in fed shipbuilding has moved away from the saucer.
the reasonings for this are the more arrowhead shape is supposed to make a ship more streamlined so its easier to create a stable warp field or something along those lines

Thats why in the current books and stuff , ships are designed more and more streamlined for slipstream drive
