Yeah, it was definitely in a preview.
As for when they made the decision, who knows? But, it is still a pretty small concession where other fans who dislike the new Enterprise design are concerned. Still though, with that, I stand by the notion that the overall design should not be changed. It's already established for this series of movies.... perhaps, over time, the design might see some changes, but they should not occur so suddenly that it jars belief.
