Ok, I've heard people claim that the EA has thousands of ships. Now, in 'And now for a word' (season 2 ep), ISN states that the EA has 14 systems under it's control. So, if the claims of thousands of ships is correct, it would mean that each system would have up to a thousand ships in it. Unless they constantly have over half their fleet outside their systems, which still puts each system flooded with a few hundred ships. This makes no sense since we never see any such amount of ships anywhere. If this were actually the case, Sheridan and his friends wouldn't have even be able to dent the EA forces. Either the fleet numbers include fighters, support and repair ships, other small craft or it is simply wrong. Next issue; There also have been claims of thousands of ships in the assault fleet against the Narn Homeworld. Yet, when we hear Refa and Londo talk, Refa says; "We have a dozen of our largest battleships waiting in hyperspace, ready to strike." - Refa Now, unless I've landed in some sort of alternate dimension where math has become retarded, a dozen != thousands. Any reasonable explaination without resorting to books and other secondary canon (and thus discarding evidence we see and hear onscreen)?
