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. 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.
Well duering that time the war with the Tskanthi and Cardasians broke out.
So rather than build a fancy new Galaxy Class they may have concentrated on ships for those wars with the Galaxy class project put as low priority.
