Re: Size of various fleets in ENT era

At least it seems to have pretty pictures relating to that war. I wonder if there's going to be any extensive textual fiction there, beyond these make-believe minutiae, posters and other fairly limited documents?

There is something to be said for the ENT and ENT novel take on the "telepresence war", although it's a somewhat timid take from the general dramatic point of view, chiefly going where canon has gone before. It still leaves unsolved a few things about "Balance of Terror", such as why our heroes were so ignorant of the conflict if it really was that big and important an event. Perhaps the ignorance would be best explained if the fleets involved did not really number in the hundreds - but if instead just a few individual ships clashed in a quickly forgotten "bush war" of some sort?
