That's not "ugly" at all. It's simply an almost-standard Nikon film SLR, with the digital system and power system attached to the bottom of it. It basically just reflects the state of technology at the time, not a result of "ugly" design that the camera looks like that. Take the digital attachment off, and you just have an almost-standard, normal-looking Nikon film SLR that many people found quite attractive. If you think that the large digital module attachment was just a result of "ugly" design, then you're being naive about what was required, electronically-speaking, for digital photography at the time. Today, we take for granted how small the electronics for digital photography have gotten, but back then that's how large the electronics were. And given that there was no other place to hide it, they obviously attached it to the bottom of the SLR as cleanly as they could.
