Anyone Else think we need a Miranda class Refit.
 
I think that we in Sto need a Miranda Class Refit. Not a VA lvl Miranda, but a Commander lvl one would do just fine. As another escort. This ship was used so much that its kinda sad that its only a beginning lvl ship. And that the Constitution class was ranked higher than it. When the Miranda can out gun and out run the Constitution class.

The only way he Miranda outgunned the Constitution class was by hitting it when the Connie's shields were down.

I don't really like the Miranda, but would not argue against a higher tier version. I would like to see a modern version that is smaller than the Nebula.

I would not mind seeing the Merian as a T2 Miranda. :)

A shakar? perhaps

The Miranda class - the VW bug of the future. No matter how old it gets, it just won't quit.

Yeah, that is the kind of thing I was thinking about.

I'd love to see the Ambassador class in that pic as an alternate Excelsior skin..

You're probably referring to Spock's comment in Star Trek 2 "She can still outrun us and outgun us."
That was after the two ships had exchanged fire at the beginning of the movie.
And we know Enterprise could not fire more than a few shots at Reliand because they had just the batteries left.
So Reliant was less damaged than Enterprise, that's why.
Also the Saber seems to be a worthy successor, being about as modern as the Sovereign and the same size as the Miranda.
So why would you want a refit?
I'd rather hae an uprated Saber with an agility closer to the BoP.
It would also be more credible than the T5 Defiant.

I do agree the Shi'kar skin is the more modern look for the Miranda. But it's still limited to the stats of a t1 starship.

Since we have Nebula at t3 (and a again at t5), I'm thinking that Merian-class would be nice as a skin for the t5 Nebula or as a stand-alone t5 starship.

I'd like to see a higher tier miranda too, even a T2 one.
