Re: Why were ships so fragile in DS9

In the case of the Dominion, there was an explanation. Dominion weapons could penetrate Starfleet shields, as was mentioned in a number of episodes.

In the case of battles between Alpha Quadrant powers, there's really no on-screen explanation. Maybe the Klingons were diverting their shield power to their weapons to bring down the station's heavy shielding.
