Re: So many Mirandas/So few Constitution-refits?

...And since the job of a starship seems to be to do everything, all the starship generations would essentially be overlapping. With a single class surviving for about a century, and gradually moving from frontline to rear echelon versions of the same do-all mission, and with new models coming out every thirty years or so, there'd be three or four general purpose starship designs in simultaneous use in every size category.

Goes a long way in answering the questions of the parallel thread on "too many classes"...
