That's not calling for any T5 circular saucer, that's calling for the Venture to be replaced with a circular-saucered design. And then for the burning of all the other T5 ships except the excelsior retro because it's not got an ovoid saucer.
If you were just asking for a modern looking circular-saucered ship at T5, my response might have been "What a grand idea. They could modernize the look of the excelsior or constitution with the same kind of treatment they applied to the Galaxy with the Venture. Especially if it was a skin for the excelsior retrofit, which would let people use its transwarp without being in a time warp."
But you didn't ask for that, so I didn't say it.
The Akira was designed around the same time as the Sovereign and Intrepid, canonically. So it's not a closed book.
The title says "SHOULD HAVE BEEN" not "SHOULD BE." Additionally, Look at the content of my first post. I believe that is exactly what I stated. "I want a modern RA level ship with a circular saucer." My point was that I wish the most recent new ship design had been that of a circular saucer, not that the venture should be MADE INTO a circular saucer. Small distinctions are important. Therefore, I will accept your above stated response as the one you meant to give, and agree with it. Updated excelsior, ftw.
