Re: TMP Refit - Why?

It's possible that Enterprise is the only ship to get such a radical refit. Either the "Refit" style of ships were already in service by the time the Enterprise comes home, or she's a new technology testbed and everything after that was built new.

As for the Excelsiors and Mirandas not being refitted: Maybe Starfleet engine tech was relatively unchanged for a few decades. When the Ambassadors entered service it was such a hug leap forward, that the older ships couldn't be upgraded to the new engines.
