Less "Wow, we went through that and we have to build this" and more "Well, I was going to build this (1964 TOS E), but I suddenly had a new idea to tweak it like this (2008 JJ E)"

That would mean it would also come to be titled "Constitution" Class by the Federation, but it would be an ANBE-Constitution, if I'm making my point well enough.

It recognizes that they aren't the same vessel, but they are the "same ship".

It's like Geordi: "It's like...I'm there, but I'm not!!111"

What in the Husnock is ANBE? Check here if you've read the spoiler at the start of the thread.
Changes to the design may be to allow the ship to be built on the planets surface. Widened and lengthened neck changes to the nacelles to bring the ships center of gravity to the center of the ship. The Next Gen like nacelle pylons all to compensate for gravity.
