The Nebula class wasn't a counterpart for the Galaxy at all. It's a short duty, specialized mission oriented ship. The Galaxy class was a long tour, deep space exploration vessel. They may have used similar design specs for certain things, but they aren't even the same hull type.

Seriously, you're comparing apples and trout.

By the by, the other Light Cruiser you're thinking of is the Soyuz class, as featured in "Cause and Effect" (TNG) by the USS Bozeman, NCC-1941. It was the same hull type as the Miranda class, but had a different design for more combat-oriented missions.
