It's hard to spot the similarity.

This is hilarious. Thank you! I appreciated this humor.

To other replies -- all true I guess. I just sort of figured that if you are Federation, you will want to play a vessel that..well...LOOKS like a federation vessel. You know...the Saucer design with the warp nacelles....

As far as Andorian designs influencing Klingon ship designs...I would have to research that. If I recall correctly, the Klingon BoP design pre-dates Archer's Enterprise by quite a bit...didn't Archer steal tech from the Klingons in one episode? The Photon Torp? I seem to recall a Klingon vessel in distress...and Archer exploited the situation to obtain a new weapon for the nascent Federation...but that is probably just a biased version of what really happened...my memory is a bit hazy...and I did not catch all of the Enterprise episodes....
