Yeah, but the DS9 era Starfleet still was using huge numbers of Narendra III vintage ships. (Excelsiors, Mirandas etc)
Yes, because they had time to get those 100s or if not 1000s of ships out of mothballs. Think of the times in TNG when they had little warning and could barely scrape together 30 or 40 ships.

Also, presumably Starfleet was fighting border wars during that time with Cardassians and Tzenkethi at the very least, so they weren't entirely out of training for threat scenarios.
True, but border wars don't seem like they need that many ships, IMO.
