Re: Size of starfleet?
Well it is stated in undiscoverd country that ships and stations can be moth balled.
And it took Starfleet 20 years before they built a new Enterprise after the Enterprise-C was destroyed, but only a few years between Ent-D and Ent-E. So I would think the political environment (a treaty with the Klingons) would have a big effect on on what kind of ships and how many were built. The Borg became a big enough threat that they created the Defiant and Sovereign classes to combat them. A threat that didn't exist 20 years prior. The Romulans were missing for years. The Enterprise-D was built for deep space exploration, not long, drawn out battles.
In space, no one can hear you Die Hard.
