It's an Excelsior kitbash, so you argue that it was the light cruiser version to the Excelsior class as the Miranda was to the Constitution.
The Centaur is not a "Miranda out of Excelsior parts".
While the DS9TM states this, it's utter rubbish. The drawing in tha book also only remotely match the Centaur as we saw her in the shows.The ship is a whole lot smaller than it would be if the Centuar were based on an Excelsior saucer.

"[...]Hutzel saw it, he wanted it for his Episode with the JH Bug. I added more detail at this point to make sure the scale looked like a smaller ship even tho' it was an Excelsior dish."
