Re: The operational status of NCC 1701-A...?
True, but the refit took what 18 months? If you could build a brand new ship in less time than that. Which is more efficent?
Yes the refit time might have come down with further refits, but the same could be said of building a new ship.
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.
