However, I'd also note that the other Federation ships, Magellan and Salamis class
ships, while modernized dont have MS carrying capability at this time either. It
seems that sometime between 0083 and 0087 the Federation realized it needed
MS-carrying ships and all of the 0083-style upgraded Salamis class cruisers were
replaced by MS carrying ones. Either that or all the 0083-style ones are simply
"offscreen." :)
