The fact that they have thousands of ships but only have 1 or 2 ships guarding there most vital planets! Fix your defences!
Thousands of starships are a fact? How? What we get from the episodes and movies (including the apparent lack of starships near earth) suggests the opposite, a rather small starfleet. And in the 23rd century even more so than in the 24th.
DS9 showed us fleets consisting of hundreds of starships. IIRC, one such fleet was referred to as "Ninth fleet" suggesting a thous or more.

Then again, in "Best of Both Worlds" and "The Emissary", the best Starfleet could do to defend the heart of the Federation was 40 ships.

And in TOS, there was mention of twelve Enterprise-type ships, which were somehow extra special compared to everything else.


...erm... depends on the writer?
