Although you captain a ship at ensign rank so an outdated miranda makes some sense for a first ship, but a shuttle may have been a better first ship..

They didn't replace the Mirandas with anything else and they needed general workhorse ships. IT could have been Nebula but the Galaxy era were too gigantic and bulky to reproduce efficiently at the time.

The way I see it for these special circumstance ships is that they're replicas to study. Excelsiors and Constitutions were refitted and retrofitted to death and beyond as Starfleet doesn't like throwing away ships when they need them. No doubt Kirk had something to do with that.

The real issue is that Cryptic treats lore as an afterthought instead of making things known.

Mirandas do have a replacement, the Shi'Kahrs. However, that is one of Cryptic's failings, They add new stuff without really explaining it or adding a backstory to it. Yeah, they give us dev blogs, but they really don't say too much.

Shi'Kahrs are the ugliest ship in this game.

I actually thing the Yeager has some pretty aspects. Aside from being a mix Maqui Freighter/Intrepid.
