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.
Just because the name and registry number are in a certain place on the Enterprise E does not mean they would appear in the same place on another ship. Ships in this game can carry quite lengthy names and the art department may have decided to rearrange things a bit to make the names more visible rather than forcing a tiny, unreadable font.
I think there are an awful lot of ship models in STO and the art department has generally done a fairly good job making them accurate. For instance, the level of detail on the B'rel is absolutely stunning.
