Perhaps you should start by not using the "Magic" excuse because that is not a argument, its a word that is used to excuse anything and everything.
The Exeter was abandoned, its possible that Starfleet send a team to recover the ship and it continued service but that is a conjecture, since the ship was abandoned in orbit its also quit possible the ship orbit decayed and it crashed on the planet or considering the hazard posed that the Enterprise being unable to tow the ship or manned it had activated the ship self-destruct to prevent the above scenario as it posed a serious hazard.
All are conjectures, however we do know the Constitution refit was extremely problematic and the Exeter being refitted would simply amount to being another ship that would serve for some more years (like the Enterprise) until it was going to the scrapyard.
Also TMP is certainly NOT T5, even the Miranda that was a newer ship does not have a T5 variant and never will, also using the excuse that "well its new so it can perform to T5" is the same as saying any Coast Guard ship that is recently can perform as well as a Nimitz Class carrier since its "newer", the fact the Exeter can use the Constitution Refit as a costume makes sure that ship will never be a T5 ship in the game.
The bug and fleet defiant pack the most powerful weapons in the game and they are barely bigger than the Connie saucer. It would be easy for STO engineers to put tier 5 tech in the ship.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The Constellation is made up primarily of Connie refit parts and it is tier 5, there is no logical reason whatsoever for the no tier 5/6 connie rule.
