I always wondered why there were over 800 people on this ship? Wives...children...pregnant wives. Can someone explain this? no big deal but, why were so many people on this ship?
Any reason for there not to be?

A Nimitz-class aircraft carrier is half the length of a Galaxy-class starship and only about 44 meters less than a Constitution-class starship, but it has a crew complement of over 5,500 people -- well over 5,000 more crew than is found aboard a Constitution and around 2,000 more than a Galaxy-class starship's maximum passenger and guest complement.
