Looks like this is where they got the idea for U.S.S. Discovery, there are quite a few scrapped projects they can pull from though.

Looking at the deflector... there is no dish like the ENT/TOS era...
Also has exposed phaser turrets, 2 indented rings going around the rim of the saucer section.. it looks more like a the original movie era.

Reading the article above me that Eazzie posted.. im reading that they are still tweaking things and waiting for approval... they haven't officially said this ship wont be the final.. instead it reads as if they are talking more about the CGI graphics in the reveal video, than they are about the ship maybe changing.

Though the more I look at the ship, the more Im growing for it, it may be like a carrier ship!

Some new information was released by Bryan Fuller at the CBS All Access panel for Television Critics Association: http://trekcore.com/blog/2016/08/bryan-fuller-reveals-long-awaited-star-trek-discovery-details/

Quick Facts:
- Story won't be focused on the starship captain, but a female LtCmdr and how she relates to events around her. (She's yet to be cast.)
- Diversity is a strong focus of the show; will feature a lot of Star Trek alien races, including reimagined canon races.
- Main cast will include a gay male character.
- Set a decade before NCC-1701's five year mission (circa 2255), will deal with an event that's been mentioned on screen. (Some speculate the Sheliak Treaty. Confirmed not Kobayashi Maru, Battle of Axanar or Romulan War.)
- Amanda Grayson (Spock's mother) and Section 31 may factor into the show in some way.

Yeah, we've been talking about this a little bit on the SGN Facebook feed.  Generally, it seems that most of us are of the mindset that we'd sooner have a late release and a better product rather than a rushed and underwhelming one.  Looks like this delay was at the request of the creative team for that purpose, so I'm okay with that.  Will be right around the Game of Thrones release though, so hopefully CBS All Access doesn't lose out to subscriptions because of everyone throwing down the $20.00 per month on HBO for that stretch!
