Hi everyone. I am just getting into Star Trek. I recently saw the new movie, and have since watched Nemesis and First Contact, and I've started to watch Next Generation. Does any of the movies or series have huge battles between hundreds of ships, fleet against fleet? (also ground battles are cool too.) If so, could you guys name the movies/ episodes? I probably will not skip to those episodes but I wanna know when I am in store for a treat.
Battles in Star Trek were usually limited to a few ships at a time until Deep Space Nine. The most notable DS9 episodes are:
3x21 - The Die Is Cast
4x01 - The Way of the Warrior
5x26 - Call to Arms
6x06 - Sacrifice of Angels
6x26 - Tears of the Prophets
7x20 - The Changing Face of Evil
7x25 - What You Leave Behind

Here's a compilation video of DS9 battle sequences but it might spoil the impact of the episodes if you watch it.

Wasn't a lot of the Federation fleet in the Dominion War made up of Miranda class ships taken out of mothball or built quickly?

Well the fleet battles did feature large numbers of Miranda and Excelsior Class vessels.

In the TNG we see alot of miranda floating about doing stuff.Same wth the excelliors

Im guessing it was a easy refited reliable design. Loads were built over a number of decades with many older ones in mothball and the newer ones still out there being used.

He may not have one now, but he clearly had one during the television series and another during the films. How else do you explain the drastic change in his hairstyle before The Motion Picture?
Age.

Let's ask Google...

<googles>

Hard to tell. A lot of people say yes but I can't be sure. Anyway, he's not wearing one now, as far as I can tell. Implants, maybe.

^I remember reading once, probably in these parts, that he insisted on doing the underwater bit in STIV to show off his then-new plugs.

Re: Huge Battles?

I wish I could sit down more often and just watch. I'm not going to watch any clips as I don't want to ruin the experience, but I am awfully aching for some massive battles.

Re: Huge Battles?

Hey what about the novels? Which novels contain major battles (space or land)?
