Re: Oberth Class – the missing link between Enterprise and Reliant
I'm curious where you got the "late 22nd century" dates from? I can't recall anything stating that the Oberth type was around in the 2100's at all...
...nor is there a reliable statement that it was not
already around in the late 22nd or early 23rd Century.
We are entirely dealing with conjecture here and my point is that we should consider that the previous conjecture (mid or late 23rd Century) mustn't necessarily be the optimal one.
