Sounds pretty desperate to me if they're willing to go to the Romulans for help.
He still does not mention bringing any mothballed or recruit ships, which was the main point.
But I did miss some details, and yet I think I can still make a claim for the general underestimation like attitude. The admiral calls the upcoming battle a party, and says they only thought about inviting romulans, instead of inviting them like they should have. Most importantly, prior to trying the deflector weapon riker suggests that the admiral send every possible ship, after the engagement he does, but at that moment the admiral seems apathetic.

Despite his promise to send everything, three ships remain at mars to be destroyed by one disrupter bolt each. His statement was empty, and some more people might have survived if it wasn't. I ask again why fully functional combat ships were not sent while a supposed museum ship was?

Finally, I ask if you can provide a single confirmed case of museum ships or cadets being purposely sent into combat. If you cannot, I think we can finally put this case to rest.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The Constellation is made up primarily of Connie refit parts and it is tier 5, there is no logical reason whatsoever for the no tier 5/6 connie rule.
