Canon Facts Backstage
The following tables attempt to describe the current makeup of the
fleets of the major Alpha and Beta quadrant powers as of early 2375, two
years after the start of the Dominion war. The information has been largely
generated by "Jane's Ships of the Milky Way" and other such civilian agencies,
combined with the both official and reputable unofficial reports of those
ships which have been lost during the hostilities. While Starfleet has
always operated a strict freedom of information policy, the necessities
of war meant that it could not be expected to be completely open about
its forces during the war. Once hostilities ceased Starfleet became much
more open about the situation, but the sheer complexity of the situation
combined with the limited space available here means that it will be some
time yet before a fully accurate picture of the current state of Starfleet
can be gained. Non-Federation powers have never been especially forthcoming
in this respect, and the information contained herein is largely compiled
from declassified Starfleet Intelligence assessments.
