Meanwhile the Enterprise served as a "training ship" for other engineers to be assigned to future Galaxy-Class ships or ships with the new systems the Enterprise had. (Hence the rotating series of engineers we see in the first season.)
This really makes a lot of sense and ties in the rotating Chief Engineers nicely.
And if you add in the Technical Manual's reference to Starfleet initially only putting six Galaxies into service at a rate of one a year), and keeping the parts for more in reserve, a year of that would have built up all the Galaxy-experienced chiefs they needed for the immediate future.
I wonder if any of those first year engineers ended up serving on the Yamato or the Odyssey...
