A moot point though, as a fully-crewed Enterprise would have been able to raise shields and simply blown the Bird of Prey into scrap anyway.
That's what Starfleet wants you to believe. Exactly that should have happened in Generations. And that was a Galaxy-class, no less.
Grissom took one shot to destroy and the Klingons weren't even wanting to blow it up. Valkris ship too. The Enterprise hit the Klingon ship with two torpedoes, the same amount of firepower that tore Reliant in two, and only barely scratched the paint (ok, they killed the dog too).
Birds of Prey are fucking dangerous.
Kruge was a complete whacko
That he was.
