Have you considered an Unconvential BOFF layout? 3 Lt Com (1 each) & a Uni Liutenant (11 powers, 1 less than standard) but it would suit the Jack of all Trades master of none motif. I think am Escort turn rate is too high 10 or 11 would be good.
I think 4/4 weapons makes sense. And I also think 9 Consoles, 3 of each would suit it's roll better. Or perhaps put the 10th console in Science or Engineering. In all honesty we don't want this thing becoming an escort. +5 to all Systems rather than the +10 to weapons, +5 to everything else.
Isn't the upgrade to the Miranda meant to be the Nebula? If the original looked like a reconfigured Connie and the Nebula looks like a Reconfigured Galaxy it makes sense right?
Granted yeah, at the same time I was rather tired when I came up with this and also maybe a little bit drunk. The real reason I decided on three aft weapons was because being able to load DC's/DHC's it might have been a 'little too much' imo with the plan of having it turn more like an escort than anything. As for the BOFF layout, I admit, your idea with that would work better with the 'master of none' idea.
EDIT: Not only that but it would also be a bit 'different' and would be something we'd never seen before on a 'T-5' grade Starship.
