Illustration done in Poser
using a mesh made from various others
I am only taking credit for the cobble of parts and the illustration.
With the advancing age of the Constellation and Cheyenne class ships, Starfleet concieved a new vessel along similar lines. Using elements of the new Sovereign class ships, the Stargazer has four nacelles mounted in an "x-wing" type configuration rather than the traditional paired mountings. It is hoped that this arangement will make the individual engines less vulnerable to attack by spreading their mounting points.
Here is Jim Stevenson's cleanup of the Stargazer class
