Re: Picard was right, Sisko was in the wrong..
I like the Galaxy
-class ship that carried families aboard. As mentioned, this class has a separable saucer, so the civilians could be evacuated, if needed. And, you could leave the civilians behind at the nearest starbase before going into a known battle.
I wish more classes of starships had family accommodations.
