Re: Excelsior Technical Manual - Revived!

I'm actually kicking around a theory about how replicator technology, as opposed to earlier food synthesizers and protein re-sequencers, revolutionized Starfleet. I'm picturing it as something that revolutionized logistics, but also put tremendous strain on the fleet to upgrade power distribution and computer systems onboard starships. I'm trying to tie it into some overall ideas about how Starfleet was able to rely on the Miranda and Excelsior classes for so long, which I'll get into more when I actually post the thing.
