Re: Yesterday's Enterprise: How is the Federation Losing So Badly?

In general, we see a pretty consistent trend of Starfleet incompetence post-TUC, starting chronologically with the fact that Starfleet was completely ignorant of the Nexus passing by Earth until the Enterprise-B received a distress call from ships trapped in it. So it wouldn't surprise me that Starfleet was overextended by exploration in the early days of the war and lost tons of ships, facilities, and planets before they consolidated their forces and managed to slow down the Klingon advance.
