I watched a preview as well and the large ships looked a bit boxy.

The landing craft looked cool on the ground, but looked a little cheap
in flight.

Yeah, that did look goofy.  The one scene of a large mass of bugs
me of an old sci-fi novel where the bug-like enemy came in
waves(quantity vs
quality) to overcome the humans.  The main difference with the book was
enemy was constantly being manufactured at several hidden factories so
each wave got destroyed, a new wave came out later to take on the
human strength.

Looked kinda like big praying mantis and dragon flies.
