Please point me to a design that is 50 years old and isn't being phased out.

Let's also consider this is a Sci Fi game and the Miranda's are quite a bit older than 50 years in the games timeline.
My point being, the general design of planes hasnt gone anywhere, has engine and wings.

True, Miranda might be older than 50 years, buts its still younger than the Vulcan science vessel.
