  We know that the better part of the Federation fleet was launched from
Jaburo in a hideously expensive orgy of booster-assisted cruiser takeoffs.
But, since the Jaburo-launched fleet stopped in at Luna Two prior to the
start of Operation Star One, I suppose it could have picked up the bulk of
its GMs there. After all, we don't see a lot of Columbus-class transports
in most depictions of the Jaburo launch (something that happened off-camera
in the actual animation)...

Collecting is for butterflies and stamps.
And at least butterfly collectors take 'em out of the jar.
