Re: Size of various fleets in ENT era

Also, if John Gill is the main author of histories, I wouldn't be surprised if the people of the future were so confused about the past.


It might be that most of the fuzzily remembered wars (mainly in TNG and DS9) are forgotten because they were forgettable - but the Romulan War was such a huge deal that the Federation had to send out thousands of Men in Black to erase the memory of Vulcan-looking people having been the enemy. Back when so few people from the major worlds were starfaring (for various reasons - Earthlings too primitive, Vulcans too dogmatic, Andorians perhaps too militaristic, etc.), this might even have been almost practicable...
