That was actually one of my main complaints about Trek: the ships are so damn slow. Really, in space, there's nothing to weigh them down. If the pilot's skilled enough, it should be able to fly around like a jet fighter. Perhaps even more agile. Never made sense to me having them float by like sluggish boats stuck in mud.
Mass. The larger a ship, the more mass it has, the more energy is needed to move and maneuver it.
Agreed. The "Abramsprise" seems so much a conglomaration of all the onscreen Enterprise's that it is almost a "kit-bash" of them.
