Re: Constellation Class: Excelsior "back-up" plan?
Starfleet may have put a lot of faith and hope into The Great Experiment, but they would also be looking at alternatives (just in case).
I've always wondered why the Constellation-Class needed so many shuttle/cargo bay doors. Was she something akin to a carrier?
