Re: ship design help.

Damn, thats a big gun.Getting back to the original spec- and I'd love to be enlightened on this one- I would have thought that a TNG era (lets say) Fed diplomatic/ first contact vessel would have had to have been fairly small in size so as not to scare the natives on their detection systems. I figure said ship would sacrifice armaments ('We come in peace'!) for comms and scanning equipment, but also being capable of getting the hell out fast if the natives want to be left alone or start shooting. Was that what the Oberth class was intended for, or was there a canon class of ship dedicated for that purpose?
