Started thinking after starting the Akira Thread, What advantages does the galaxy class have over the nebula class? From what I can tell, the nebula has the same saucer, nacelles, and engineering hull as the Galaxy, it may have slightly less volume due to the missing "neck" section. but there is no reason to believe it isn't as scientifically, diplomatically, or whateverly capable as the Galaxy Class, The Nebula may even be a better Ship then the Galaxy due to the changeable "Pod" on the back, (if it is indeed changeable, I've found nothing to indicate that isn't fan speculation as well.) I guess my question is, why the Galaxy Class? It's a Stately looking ship to be sure but it seems like a pretty unnecessary class to be sure.
