Re: Miranda Class

I think the main reason why Miranda's were abundant in the Dominion war was due to how the series creators wanted to make the battles scenes. The Dominion had big ships and little ships which are faster and since the Defiant is considered a prototype, I think they chose the Miranda to be the Starfleet equivalent to the Klingon Bird of Prey or The Dominion fighters. That way you have this nice effect of little ships weaving in between the big ships. I really think that was the only reason they were so common and the registries suggest a fair amount of them were built some time in the early 24th century making them not too old.
