Re: Intrepid class VS a galaxy class, which was more powerful and adva
Actually the Intrepid class incorporates gel packs WITH isolinear processing unites. The gel packs are artificual nueral fibers that simulate how a brain functions, allowing quicker response time. The Sovereign class also incorporates this technology.
Actually in Voyager's early episodes there was a big deal over reconfiguring Voyager to operate with Isolinear chips because they could be easily replaced and installed rather than the hard to come by gelpacks.
The Sovereign was never shown on screen to have gel packs.
