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

I always figured that the Mirandas must be cheap to produce and/or operate. And at the same time they were probably considered pretty "reliable" and versatile, even though they were neither very powerful nor very fast.

Sort of a Volkswagen Beetle-type starship or the equivalent to the Russian Soyuz spacecraft.

Well, only that the Excelsior-class seemed to fulfill to a similar role too, as a larger version though (this makes the Excelsior-class the Toyota Corolla of space, I guess :-P ).
