There's one shot that we almost get a good solid look at her from the top in perfect angle to settle this dispute but then the Defiant flies in the way, sigh.
Yeah, that scene bugged me as well, and I agree that all these scenes kinda suck for what we are trying to see.

However I still think it looks goofy having those oddly shaped skinny little impulse engines on the pylons, specially considering how big this ship is in game.

All the while the model it self appears to have nice big "cut outs" on the saucer for them.
