It requires no rationalization, whatsoever.

No really, that's the explanation.

Also bingo.

Nope. No, thanks.

Please, no Daedalus. The only way I can see that ship working is as one of a large class of workhorse vessels constructed quickly and cheaply for the Earth-Romulan war, much as the Liberty and Victory ships were during WWII: strictly non-glamo[u]r, non-starring-role, "get the grunt-work done in an unobtrusive way" sort of ships. You'd see them in passing or in the background, but that's about all.

...the Daedalus looks cooler and more consistent than the NX-01.
Nope. Not even close.
Methinks Ted Sturgeon was too kind.
