Wouldn't it stand to reason that, with the UFP only a year old, most members would still be using their own fleets? I mean, even 150 years from now, I find it hard to believe there could be an infrastructure so big, that it could build an entire fleet of newly designed ships in just a year. Personally, I always asumed that it took a few years, maybe even a decade or two, to phase out all of Earth, Vulcan, Andorian and Tellarite ships before Starfleet was made up of ships designed and build solely by Starfleet.
Yes, and there's some exploration of the beginnings of that transition in the book. If I get to do more books, we might see more of the process.
It's kind of neat to imagine Vulcan, Andorian, Tellarite, and United Earth ships all painted with the Federation livery. I'm just picturing that TOS-era blocky font on a Vulcan or Andorian ship. U.S.S. Ti'Mur or U.S.S. Kumari.
