But says only about transwarp drive. Otherwise, the Excelsior-class design had already been verified as being spaceworthy and ready for mass-production. The same would apply to the other starship classes.
Care to point to any evidence at all for this assertion? Canon? Non-canon?
Nothing but onscreen stuff:
- The fact that there were three more NX-class ships being built while NX-01 was essentially on her maiden voyage.
- Two other Galaxy-class ships in service alongside the Enterprise-D while the design was still considered fairly new within the fleet.
- Other Defiant-class ships in service alongside the Defiant.
