Ship size change?

I haven't really noticed size differences between ship classes in-game myself, although AFAIK, ship sizes weren't consistent in the TV series anyway.
Case in point:
The Search For Spock
has the Constitution class refit Ent-A barely slipping out of ESD (based on relative size to the internal bay doors). Meanwhile, in TNG, the much larger Galaxy-class Ent-D was seen also inside ESD, having somehow fitted through the same set of space doors despite being a few times larger than the former.
I do think that space stations such as ESD and DS9 need to be at least twice as large as they are in-game, though -
pilot had the Intrepid-class starship dangled from the top docking pylon like a little toy, yet when I flew my Intrepid Retrofit to DS9 in-game my ship almost crowded out the apex of the three upper pylons.
