1.) Argo-class runabouts may be carried in place of Danube-class runabouts, or there may be a mixed complement of both.

2.) Galaxy-class vessels may also carry up to 6 Valkyrie-class starfighters, but they would need to reduce their shuttle complement to make room for them in the main shuttle bay.

3.) Galaxy-class starships built prior to 2371 had a mass of only 4,960,000 metric tons. Beginning that year, new Galaxies were built (and the older models upgraded), with enhancements including (but not limited to) phaser arrays added to the nacelle struts, as well as high-density armor, thus increasing the ship’s overall mass.
