Re: The operational status of NCC 1701-A...?
What was the stipulations in the the Khitomer accords, regarding ship building. Now for me I think the notion that Starfleet decommissioned all the constitution class star ships is total crap. Starfleet did not consider them "battlecrusiers" the Klingons did but their a war like race. Besides we see D-7/Kitinga class crusiers in the TNG. So what kind of deal was that? We have to give up ours but you can keep yours???
Well we know the Federation gave up the right to pursue cloaking technology from TNG for peace with Romulans. They aren't the brightest bunch when negotiating treaties.
