It occurs to me that all the Nebula class ships might be precursors of the Galaxy class, the Galaxys are a follow on class, with the Nebula construction being discontinued prior to the construct of the first Galaxy.

I like it. This is probably close to true - I mean, apparently the Galaxys were in development hell for a while, so maybe the Nebulas were meant to prove the concept and technology behind them, as well as fill in a support role once the Galaxys came online. Thus, they'd already all be built and in service by early in the Galaxy production run if not before.
