Re: How About Replacing the Galaxy saucer with dedicated weapons platf

I too think that it would be more effective to build Defiant and Prometheus class vessels. They require a lower crew compliment (Defiant had 49 people at most in one episode, the Prometheus could be operated with as few as 4 people if memory served), have extremely capable weapons, and they were capable defensive platforms.

Plus, if you go by some of the noncanon entries in the novels, this has been attempted with the Nebula Class. This was used to explain the dorsal pod as being mission configurable.
