Do you have something against pussys?

Does that include Chakats?

The Romulans we know less about, but the fact that they only have one type of ship means their entire force would be stupidly easy to counter. Considering Starfleet designs clearly aren't as powerful as they could be, an arms race would put the Federation quite literally lightyears ahead of any Alpha quadrant race. If, from the start, they were always a military organisation, they'd be rivalling the Dominion - the fact that ships such as the Defiant can rival Dominion Battlecruisers means that if the Feds took a proper military approach, and scaled them up accordingly to something like an Excelsior - which clearly they could do if they simply recycled all the Excelsiors, they might get 5 Defiants out of it - then they'd be a match for any power in the Galaxy except maybe the Borg in my opinion.
