I believe that site highlights how much people (sci-fi TV writers and by extension the general public who are being informed by bad TV writers)
know about ship classifications (since they are supposedly using naval terminology with exception to BattleStars) or how fleets work.
Still though, STO is a game, and if they made things completely realistic, it probably wouldn't be very fun for many people. There has to be some sort of middle ground where they can make fun gameplay for every type of playstyle
be reasonable enough to have some amount of credibility so we don't pass out from "suspension of disbelief" exhaustion.
