Re: How big is Starfleet in men and ships?

Yet we know Starfleet does idle some of its vessels, as per "Unification". But we don't know if those vessels are actually useful, or mere worn-down hulks incapable of serving in any role other than weird Romulan decoy.
In "Unification," the surplus depot was regarded as a more of a junkyard, with the quartermaster actually saying he's used to ships not being in very good condition by the time they get to him.

Ships sent there may be decommissioned vessels intended to be ultimately dismantled for their parts to be used in other vessels, including kitbashes perhaps.
