    So Star Fleet would use every vessel as long as it could be upgraded?

    I would think so. I would think it would be far cheaper to upgrade then to replace.

    Is there a known graveyard for old vessels?
    In one VOY episode we can see something like this in the delta quadrant, but does Star Fleet have something like that?

    Yep, Qualor II seen in "Unification" part 2. Many of the Wolf 359 ships ended up there, along with the Planet of the Titans Enterprise.

    Sure, there was a TNG where the Enterprise went looking for a ship in a "graveyard" I think it was part of Unification
