Admiral, your suggestion has merit. In fact, it was one of the first ones we considered. The logistics of the seperation soon became complicated beyond reason. The seperation would render the overall power of each section below Starfleet standards and put the vessel at extreme risk. However, this ship has built in docking ports for a small Defiant class type personal escort. However, with resources stretched so thin it seemed inadvisable to produce this ship as well as a Defiant class escort for eech ship. At this time we are considering many alternatives. We may in fact, return to a seperation type system should certain power and sturctural problems be solved.

On a further note since these communications are being monitored by so many of my fellow officers we have dabbled with the idea of 360 degree phaser beam turrets as a means of defense. However, we are having technical issues with the design. Should any of you or your engineers have a solution to this problem please don't heisistate to contact me.
