Re: Size of various fleets in ENT era
I recall some mention during the Romulan Drone Ship trilogy in season 4, that after the Vulcan Reformation, T'Pau had to drastically cut back on military funding, thus their fleet went through a reduction in force, and wasn't able to lend as much help (this would also begin to explain why Vulcan would stop being the nanny-state superpower, and more roughly on-par with Earth, the Andorians, and the Tellarites).
