Oh, there was pages............I mean pages and pages...........of it. And looooooooong posts at that.
I think my belief was the fleet was somewhere in the vicinity of (I think this was my uppermost limit) around 6,000 ships (before the start of the War I think, much reduced by the War) all things considered. Using dialogue in DS9 and extrapolating it out. But Saq was of the opinion it was even higher than that.
But yeah, the size of the fleet has never ever been explicitly addressed.
