When you are in the collector ship you comment on how it can hold all the colonists from multiple worlds on its own, in fact it was so big it could target earth for harvesting. Bad math or hyperbole I’m not sure. So no, there was no need for multiple ships.
And yes the assumption people were making previously was that there were tons of collector ships that doesn’t mean they were right at that point. They didn’t think they were the husk remnants of the protheans, they thought they were a independent species behind a mystery relay. And it would make no sense to think a new species would only have 1 ship and it was being used to harvest colonies. They had no knowledge of them. Apparently if you watched a terrible cartoon you find out there was a second ship. But there weren’t fleets of them or even a fleet.
And no it would get rocked by a fleet and probably the destiny ascension on its own. Yes the Normandy had a super gun for its size but ground cannons that weren’t reaper tech drive them off. They are tough but no where near reaper tough. They specifically attacked colonies because they have virtually no defenses. No cannons, no ships. Pretty much just defenses against ground forces and thanks to the swarms those were easily dealt with.
Yhe Collector threat ends at the destruction of the base because you destroy the Reaper larva (i.e. the reason they were taking colonists in the first place). We are clearly shown that they also have occuli, which act as fighter drone ships.
In game, up until ME3, we are shown only one Asari ship - the DA, but we don't go around assuming that's the only ship they had.
Finally, it's an assumption that is clearly refuted with Paragon Lost.
Yup a second ship. Wooo. There is very little evidence they had a fleet. That’s an assumption with no evidence on your part.
And again if they had a fleet the threat wouldn’t be stopped as they could just harvest colonies again and build another reaper larvae.
The story point was oh my gerd a entire species with fleets we can’t stop this. Then it reveals through the game that it’s possible as they are the remnants of protheans huskified and its one ship and a base. They added a second ship to give James a backstory but that’s it. In fact mp strongly implies that yup, that was it. The relay wasn’t destroyed they could easily fly in from the omega 4 relay if they wanted to. The only way they’d need to go slow speed dark space black ark fly in thing is if that was a separate group. Probably hanging with the reapers acting as their opposable thumb maintenance crew while the reapers hibernated.
