Sure, "terrible" is up to debate, but "sloppy", in some of these cases, is not.
The models of most of the player ships are incredibly detailed, in some ways more0so than on the real on-screen models. Whether they contain what you judge to be "errors" has no bearing on their detail.
If you want to nitpick, there are huge numbers of "errors" in the real models used on screen and unlike the game, those errors are pretty much permanent. Compared to the "errors" and inconsistencies that made it onto the hundreds of hours of professionally-produced Star Trek television and movies, I think the art department here is doing a rather good job.
It does not mean that you should not point out what you believe to be an error when you find it. It just means that getting one little detail wrong when you zoom in ultra-close hardly makes the ship models "terrible".
