Change the design too much and it is no longer the Enterprise. According to some Star Trek fans, if it is not almost completely identical to the Enterprise, then why bother. IMO, the gravity disc changes the design of the Enterprise too much so that it is no longer the Enterprise. In fact, I would say that it is a crude mockery of the original. If something is called the Enterprise and is based on the NCC 1701, then it has to be as close to the original as possible or its not good enough.
