I would prefer new "ship costumes" for current era ships with a TOS aesthetic. Imagine the Ody but instead of all sleek curves it was all hard edges, geometric shapes, painted TOS white and sporting TOS style nacelles?

Or an Akira/HEC made in the TOS style.

They would be the ships we know today, with the same outlines... only using blockier, bulkier parts, painted TOS white and using the older style nacelles.

Something like these:
Agreed. There really is nothing to say that sometime between 'Nemesis' and 2409 there couldn't have been a generation of ships that looked retro to modern eyes. Being more high tech doesn't always require something be sleeker, shinier, and with more greebles and glowy bits, than what came before.

BTW, you'd pronounce it 'Cap'n Manks'
