heck they only rebuilt it it to pamper kirk and even then it was no match for the excelsior in terms of technology heck it was not for Scotty maybe the Transwarp drive had actually worked by TNG there was no connies left they was obsolete something the fan base can't seem to accept heck even the Miranda and Excelsiors was nothing more then glorified workhorses they was not the backbone of the fleet mere expendable ships

People used the argument but admirals used the excelsior so it must be good still .... did it ever occure to you people that the reason admirals used the excelsior class was that all the actual tech ship was to busy to waste ferrying flag officers around other then the Lakota not a single Excelsior had gotten a full upgrade and I suspect that it was not Starfleet's policy to introduce such a radical upgrade to such a old ship Vice Admiral Layton most likely authorized the upgrade and never bothered to consult anyone about it the Defiant Crew seemed surprised about the upgrades
You have this whole wall of text claiming that allowing Star Trek fans to fly their favorite ships from the Star Trek franchise is somehow bad for the game, but you have not provided a single concrete example of how this game would be better if someone's favorite ship was not included.

So please tell us, what is your favorite ship from the shows and how would this game be significantly better if that ship were unavailable within the game.

The fact is, if you want to fly a non-canon design, almost every canon ship comes with two or three non-canon variants. But, judging from the ships I see flying around the STO galaxy, there are a lot of trekkies out there that want to fly their favorite ships from the show.

The whole point of the game is to allow trekkies to realize their fantasies in a computer simulation, not to be a new Star Trek television show.
