There could be many more smaller short-range support vessels assigned to individual planets and starbases, though.
Thats what Im thinking make up the bulk.
I doubt there is more than a few thousand combat capital ships and even then Galaxys and Soverrign class would be in the double digit figures.
I think the bulk of the 20000's odd ships would be auxilary ships and survey ships doing very boring mundane stuff.
