From the C Store:
The NX Class Starship Replica sports the classic look of Earth's starships from the 22nd century, but has been updated with modern technology to meet current Starfleet specifications for Lieutenant-rank missions.
This shows us 2 things: past designs can be rebuilt with 25th century technology. Hence, Tier 1 ships are viable in 25th century. It's straight from the developers.
The fact that it is Lieutenant-rank missions seems silly to me, as in those missions, you are destroying battleships and others that "shouldn't happen" in the words of those arguing for realism.
It seems like Cryptic is heading in this direction.
