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

I had a vaguely similar notion once - a "tug" to recovery galaxy class saucers whose star drive sections have been destroyed after ejecting. It would be a simplified star drive, just two nacelles and a docking "neck" on a minimal hull.

I quickly realized that it would be infinitely more practical, in that situation, to have another Galaxy class ship drop its own saucer off at a starbase and go get the orphaned saucer. No point in building a whole new class of ship that might only be needed once or twice in a century.
