And even though I was wrong about cadets, twok doesn't count because that was supposed to be a training cruise.
The Enterprise was available in twok, and it was just a ship full of cadets. I don't think the admiral was going to be too fussy to take a trainer ship into combat when facing the borg.

You assume these ships were able to function outside of whatever control center mars had.

Twok does count. Cadets being sent into a dangerous situation are cadets being sent into a dangerous situation. It even shows some constitutions being relegated to training, even in kirk's day  1341951426
