Hmm, I sense a pattern here. Finally, it becomes clear why the bioneural gelpacks made a difference in the Intrepid-class. The ship didn't require a crew to run it! They were just there for show and occasionally to carry padds from place to place. And near-total automation would also explain why the self-destruct requires only one officer.
Wow, this show makes so much more sense now.
