Re: Will the Dominion be a complete non-factor in the JJ-Verse?
Ah, but alongside the Birds of Prey, the Klingons also have the D7 (their equivalent of the Constitution/Miranda), and there is a theory that the refitted K'tinga-class from TMP was a direct result of Klingon spies learning of the proposed refits of the Constitution class. Another theory of course is that the Constitution refit was Starfleet's response to the K'tinga!
My theory is that they just had more money for the models.
And that's my opinion.
