Re: Regarding the Strength of the Federation...

Federation's greatest strength - greatest resource base from among the local powers (fourth rate, at best, when compared with other powers we know exist in the galaxy, though); its technological prowess is among the best in local space (not in the galaxy, though).
Federation's greatest weakness - its unpreparedness for armed conflict borders on the comical - this is obvious in everything from starfleet training and procedures to the priorities obvious in its starship design.

Starfleet ships' greatest strength - flexibility: you can create staggering amounts of techobabble with their deflector; easy to modify engines; etc.
Starfleet ships' greatest weakness - construction: it takes far too long to build and repair them.
