Why is there no Sovereign classes in DS9?

Surely the Federation would send everything it had to repel the Gamma invaders?

Of course, they could have gotten around that by making the name very clear on screen, but then that would detract from the overall action.

In addition, I should think that even though it wasn't the first of its class, it was probably very early in the [i]Sovereign[/i] run when the Dominion War ended, meaning that there were probably very few of those ships around.

The answer I've always given from an in-character perspective (and also the one I believe to be true) is that there were only 2 or 3 Sovvies around during the war (and also only a handful of Intrepids, though more of those than Sovvies) and we just happened to never see a battle where one was involved. Probably since the Sovereign was geared towards exploration and Diplomacy they were put under the command of Captains with a lot of diplomatic ability and, much like the Enterprise, sent around putting out the small fires that the war created.
