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

I tend to think the Miranda-class was just simply a very versatile design that could be used for just about any kind of mission when necessary. A reason for its longevity could be that its onboard systems can be easily upgraded to keep up with the fleet (it may still use phaser banks rather than arrays, but their output could be comparable with other 24th-Century designs; its computer system may now use current isolinear technology rather than 23rd-Century duotronics or multitronics).
