Re: U.S.S. Curry and other ships from DS9
Of course, why her small size would have anything to do with her speed is beyond me.
Indeed, her small size and mass, coupled with the newer Galaxy-style engines would actually imply the exact opposite case to be true. The Trieste should be one of the fastest ships in the fleet!
I may appear unoccupied to you, but at the molecular level, I'm really quite busy.
