Re: Why so many ship classes?....it doesn't seem realistic.

But that's not what we see onscreen, only in way-off-canon novels or fanfic. There is no reason to suspect that the shows were heavily biased towards a certain fraction of Starfleet. A number of episodes showed us locations far from the main series settings (the UP shipyards, for example), and the producers didn't request new ship designs for those stories what would be the point? The LightWave fleet represented the 2370s, the miniature/kitbash fleet the 2360s and the 2280s, and so forth.
