I didn't intend this thread to turn into a debate concerning the proper use of the term flagship.
I meant it more as a thread to ask the question if the technologies that the Vesta
-class posessed would make the rest of the fleet obsolete and/or the rest of the fleet would soon be in drydocks and fitted with the new technologies when they were deemed to be stable and operational.
Will we see the Enterprise
fitted with the new quantum slipstream drive or the other technologies of the Vesta
-class in the literary series?
