It looks like a nice discussion is not going to happen, too bad.

Wheras the Madden design that is an obvious throwback to the Constitution profile uses lines and detail elements that feel more like the Sovereign and post-Sovereign AC skins, along with elements resmbling other modern STO vessels. And yes, I liked that one the best.
Yeah, i get that there will be similarities, but look at the ships evolving over time and all the other designs present, it can change.
