Re: Constitution, Miranda, and Constelation Class

Starfleet platform-sharing with its ships doesn't strike me as THAT odd. Look at what cars are like today: The Toyota Aygo, Citroen C1 and Peugeot 107 are all exactly the same car underneath. Then look at Volkswagen; If you compare say, the Golf to an Audi A3, or any other small hatchback in one of the VW empire's subsidiaries, you would find that they had much the same design. It therefore makes sense that Starfleet would use similar shapes in multiple classes of Starship, since it means they only have to design one saucer section instead of three.
