Re: Refit Dreadnought.... Question?
I never saw the logic of FJ taking the basic Constitution-class starship design, fattening it up, and then moving the hangar bay from the rear of the secondary hull to the front in the Federation class. Looks like an invitation to crash shuttles.
FWIW, the content of TOS always seemed to suggest to me that Kirk's Enterprise *was* a "dreadnought", only they called it a starcruiser.
