Here here. Would make my day if one day I log on to an all new Federation fleet next to Earth space-dock. Begone horrible early Cryptic knock-off ship variants.

The Strider was labeled as a "scout" in that game ... essentially a cross between an escort and a science vessel.

I just really liked the Strider in that game because it was a cross between three of my favorite movie-era starships (Constitution, Excelsior, and Oberth).

I'd like to see more ships in STO that are styled after the movie-era ships and I like the idea of a hybrid escort/science ship.
I really like that. Swap out that torp launcher in the nose for a deflector, and it would make a nice retro Nova variant.

If I may wax hypothetical momentarily-

Badlands Pack
Relive the tense battles and guerilla warfare of the Maquis Campaign with these updated replicas of the ships that originally fought it!
Includes: Maquis Raider, Bajoran Militia Interceptor, Cardassian Hideki-class Frigate

Delta Quadrant Pack
The cultures of the Delta Quadrant are making contact with the Alpha and Beta Quadrants for the second time. Examples of their ships are making their way into allied hands, and you get the chance to try them out!
Includes: Vidiian Reaver Cruiser, Hierarchy Strategic Surveillance Vessel, B'omar Patrol Gunship

Starfleet Reserves Pack
Not all Starfleet ships are as iconic as the Galaxy-class or the Odyssey-class. These ships serve the Federation out of the spotlight, but with the new Undine threat, even they are being released onto the front lines.
Includes: Yeager-class Long Range Science Vessel, New Orleans-class Light Cruiser, Niagara-class Exploration Cruiser

Just some thoughts on how this sort of thing might be done. Do feel free to suggest your own.

Edit: changed Delta Quadrant Pack description to be faction-neutral.

Will Cryptic ever model the Enterprise from the 2009 Star Trek film along with the bridge, because the film is technically AU canon if you count prime Spock and the jellyfish.

Nope. Cryptic's licence is with CBS; but it is Paramount that holds the licence for Trek 2009. It's basically because CBS and Paramount had a breakup some years back; Cryptic can't use anything from the new films.

Damn, is there a ship and bridge that closely resembles the AU flims?

Not particularly. Closest ship (at tier 5 anyway) would probably be the Ambassador retrofit; but that's still very different.

I think there might be a bridge that is somewhat similar; pale grey colours, and free standing glass wall displays surrounding the central area. Couldn't say how close it really is, or what it's called though; haven't seen it in a couple of years.

Would love to see a Maquis Raider (Condor class I believe) in the game, also although not seen on screen the TOS era had the Ptolemy class 'tug' / freighter which had an interesting look

The Maquis Raider is called the Peregrine class and is in the game (as a C-Store small craft). It comes with 2 tac console slots and a built in (non-BOFF) Cannon Rapid Fire I. I used one (with 2 single cannons on it, after testing it with duals and getting frustrated at the small firing arc) during the Shuttle Event a few weeks ago.
