The fact of the matter is that a flag ships needs to be able to deal a few good solid punches to at times. At this the Galaxy class just doesn't hold a candle to the sovereign which was designed from the ground up to be far more combat orientated and than you can take even half the mass of the galaxy and come out with a batter ship with only 1 down side, it does not carry families and really families should not be onboard most vessels.
The Galaxy wasn't created during a time with major war though. Although the Dominion War refits of the Galaxy did infact use that space for better systems.

The Galaxy's "Kill to Death" ratio was the highest of any ship during the Dominion war.

I'm with you on this. Clearly there are 3 pylons attaching the saucer the the main hull. Way to ignore the contest and do things your way on this one devs. I know people give you guys a hard time. But if your going to pick a winner. Make it LOOK like the winner?

Dude, that 'third' neck was the right hand warp pylon, 'plain as day'


Seriously, who am I going to believe, the guy who drew the winning sketch, or... you...



GEE, LET ME THINK FOR A MOMENT.

A little while ago, I did a size comparison of the three ships:

The Ent-F is certainly longer than the Galaxy, but the Galaxy (especially the saucer) is far more massive.

But the engineering section is so much bulkier, although alot of that looks like alot of hull plating..

Thats because they were the same ship. (A = Refit)

Yes the Ent-F's engineering section is bigger and bulkier, but I don't think as much bigger as you think it is. I'd say the Galaxy still beats it for mass and internal volume. Of course none of this will have any bearing on their performance in game.

Whoa-whoa-whoa.. Hold up.

The Enterprise NCC-1701 from the show was the same Enterprise we saw in TMP, WoK, & saw destroyed in TSFS.

The Enterprise NCC-1701-A was an entirely different Constitution class ship, merely given the same name and registry number (with the A added to differentiate in records).
