And I suppose you want the US Navy using Clippers on active combat duty ...
The Solar Sail is akin to a wind sail, they work under specific circumstances (and you would know if you actually read the article) and utter unsuitable for long range and deep space missions and I serious doubt they are suitable for combat.
Also this IS the link you are looking for ...
Not to mention the Bajorians stop using them (outside, maybe civilian recreation ships), they used the Antares class cruisers that were antiquated transports and several ships that are of un-named classes (Interceptor, raider, starship, warship and another transport) that none used Solar Sails.
The game is already enough of a flying museum as it is, lets not add other antiques to it.
