In the Dominion War and against the Borg the only thing I saw from the Miranda was it getting blown to bits all over the screen. Even in Star Trek II, the Miranda catches the Enterprise with pants down/no shields and still the Connie takes a beating and keeps on going. However when the Miranda has no shields, Kirk blows it to pieces with 2 torpedoes and some random phaser fire.
At least the Connie/Excelsior are tankish and were shown to be pretty durable ships in the Star Trek films and shows. The Miranda though is mostly just cannon fodder.
That having been said, I don't mind those that want to have their nostalgic ship later on in the game. They could do a variant like they did for the Nebula and Galaxy to upate the look so it feels more like an updated ship and make it playable at Commander/Captain level. Especially for Engineer, who I feel has the worst ship options at Commander, but at least we have the Ambassador now along with the Excelsior.
