Re: Crew of the Enterprise-D
Internal volume does not mean you need more crew.
You have more space for backup systems, Larger quarters, greater matter/anti-matter storage tanks. Can have larger shuttle bays, More space for torpedeos etc..
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
