Re: D'deridex class Warbird vs Galaxy class

Even if the D'deridex is smaller volume wise than the Galaxy, it still doesn't reason that it would be less powerful or would be less efficient in combat. The Galaxy is a "multi-mission explorer" while the D'deridex is pretty much a straight warship from everything I've seen on TV.

So all those things we see as part of the Galaxy (family quarters, holodecks, arboretums, science labs, classrooms) likely don't exist or exist in far smaller quantities on the D'deridex. So that is volume that they can dedicate to power generation, shield emitters, cloak emitters and weapons systems.
