Clearer details of the shadowed areas of the hull.

I see no real difference, but it's still a nice looking pic.

I'm still confused about the Kelvin. Are we looking at the top or bottom of the ship? Is that a warp nacelle or a secondary/engineering hull?

I think that the Kelvin is a lot like the old scout ship from the original ‘Star Trek Technical Manual’ a single warp nacelle under the primary hull but with the added engineering section above the primary hull much like the mini-hull on the Reliant.

The scout ship Idea makes sence - I assume you are refering the Hermes Class.
I'm still curious if we are looking at a nacelle or an engineering hull.

I hope this is a nacelle and a 2 nacelle ship. I was never a big fan of the Idea of single nacelle concept.

See the "Roddenberry's Design Rules" about 1/3 of the way down this page:

we're looking at the top, the lettering just doesn't work if your flip or rotate it any other way, and it appears to have the engineering hull on top

Wonder what the yellow glow to frame left is. Maybe it's near a star.
