Re: How About Replacing the Galaxy saucer with dedicated weapons platf
It isn't just size; it's the volume of material needed to build, and the construction effort, and the upkeep.
Besides, six Defiants have be more effective than one Galaxy, no matter how modified it could be for combat. That's six more targets for a potential adversary to worry about.
