Re: Why were ships so fragile in DS9

I'd simply say that a giant space station can fire stronger beams than a starship that easily fits inside its cradling pylons... Nothing wrong with destroying a puny Bird of Prey with a single shot.

As for maneuvering, we can always say the battles are shown in slow motion. Except for rare occasions, such as "Emissary", where the battle against the Borg involves high speeds, tight turns, and phaser fire zapping out like three shots per second.
