A mission-profile descendant of the Intrepid class, it would seem.
And as for the issue with the nacelles being so close to the hull: it is not unreasonable to assume that as both space-warp engineering tech and radiation shielding tech continue to advance, the old-timey dangers about magnatomic contamination would have been addressed apace.

Anyone else remember when one wasn't supposed to put nacelles close to the hull because they were teh danger? <_<

Yes, and that was blown out of the water by the opposing factions in TOS. Many of the ships they encountered were configured with the warp engines built into the body.

Oldskool fanon was that the Klingons didn't care, having servitors to deal with the radiation; the Romulans did, hence pylons; the Gorn didn't care because they made slow bricks and were relatively hardy; the Tholians didn't care because Tholians.

Then TNG came along with obviously-integrated nacelles (like the Marauder, but you'd imagine that the Ferengi would care very much if they were getting irradiated. Maybe. Then the Defiant happened and that was that--once the nacelles were defined as coils rather than powerplants and therefore there was no real need to jettison them in case of emergency...
