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".
I don't know why I keep having to post this picture over and over...
This problem, along with the Dreadnought components being off-axis and the gap in the Expl. Cruiser Retrofit, is quite easily seen. The Intrepid-class has a similar problem, on the underside of the saucer.
You don't need to zoom in ultra-close to see this. And I hardly call this "accurate".
"A rather good job". Right.
