No, no, I agree entirely. I was actually commenting more on the notion that somehow the ships as they are presented in STO will somehow "make sense" from some sort of space geo-political strategy standpoint. They literally can't because the writers of ST have never made a space geo-political strategy for the series.
That doesn't prevent it from being fun to do so...as evidenced by those of us who do it so often!
