In that capacity, you're probably still looking at only a few thousand frontline starships, with the rest being auxiliary craft more along the lines of shuttles and tugs.
That what im saying though!
Most of the fleet is just mundane support craft.
Frontline ships are most likley in the low thousands.
8000 light years is a huge terratory so there would have to be a massive support fleet. Not necessarily frontline ships lilke galaxly classes or even mirandas but most likley small cargo/ Transport like ships.
