The following article describes the twenty-third century Miranda-class starship. For Miranda-class vessels serving in the twenty-fourth century, see Miranda-Refit-class.

The Miranda-class is a class of Federation starship that served in Starfleet in the latter half of the twenty-third century.


General Overview

Class History

In 2276, the last of the Surya Class Frigates were converted to the Avenger Class configuration. However, these vessels had already been in service for nearly forty years. Numerous advances in weapons, sensor, and starship design technologies had all but made the Old Tech vessels obsolete. As such, Starfleet Command drafted plans to produce a new starship based on the Avenger design. This new Class would include all of the latest technologies, advances in warp drive theory, and starship hull design. In addition, the new ships would be highly mission adaptable, with gamma-welded bulkheads being replaced with modular mission compartments throughout the ship's internal volume. In the years to come, all Starfleet vessels would share this design element. In 2279, the first Miranda Class Light Cruiser, designed to be the companion vessel to the Constitution II Heavy Cruiser, was launched, heralding the beginning of an extensive production and operational life.
