Re: Starfleet Procurement Policy Draft

We should also bear in mind that the NX class was the first warp 5 ship. Maybe Starfleet could build their old slow ships more like your TNG-era approach, but with the new ships they saw that this design is too weak. So they changed their later designs to "endo skeleton with compartments" and then in TMP they reached the tech level to slowly go for the lighter "exoskeleton with hull filled with modules" again.
