.. but following his own logic, he shouldn't demand it
Actually, I shouldn't whine about it and post in every single post how terribly neglected I feel for not getting precisely what I want.
And I don't do that. I am just asking why it was not done.
Possible explanations include (but are certainly not limited to) legal issues, strategic plans on the role of foreign-species ships in Starfleet, or another Starfleet full carrier coming up that will fill the role... or it could be simply an oversight, or whatever.
