Yeah, but keep in mind that is the exact same reason that the excelsior got used so much in the shows. Budgetary constraints and the model was already done and available.

So you know the entire debate about how the excelsior was shown to be in continual use? Real life reason was the same reason for the Constitution showing up in the wreckage of Wolf 359. And is the same real life reason so much footage and models and what not got reused so often. TV show with a small budget.
