The only ship we saw that resembled the Bozeman was a standard Miranda, leaving several possibilities, among them that the Bozeman in that movie was a different ship or that the Bozeman was reconstructed as a regular Miranda.
Decipher's Star Trek CCG had the U.S.S. Bozeman in it's Frist Contact Expansion set. From the Registry, and the lore box, they made it quite clear that this was the same ship. While it is true that the card game is not considered cannon, and had doctored a few pictures for cards late in First Edition, From Premier through Rules of Aquisition, they only released ships, personnel and the like based on actual screen cannon. It is very likely that the picture used on the U.S.S. Bozeman card WAS either from a screen cap, stock footage used in the movie, or from a production image used in the production of "Star Trek: First Contact".
