The Miranda-class was a type of Federation starship in use in the 23rd and 24th centuries.

The name derived from Prospero's daughter in The Tempest by William Shakespeare.

History

One of Starfleet's most successful classes, the Miranda-class began its life in the early 23rd century, serving in the 2250s as complimentary class to the Constitution-class, with which it shares many construction components.

While the early Miranda-class vessels were successful, the final configuration of the class did not come about until the 2270s and 2280s when the Miranda-class vessels and the similar Anton-class series underwent refit. The refitted Anton-class vessels were sometimes referred to as Reliant-class. The renewed Miranda-class design, again using components from the Constitution-class refit proved so successful that Starfleet rapidly commissioned a number of new vessels.

The new refitted version of the Miranda was designed by Ray Olesen.

Reliant-type refits, and newly commissioned Miranda-class vessels in the refit configuration, served well into the 24th century and still made up a significant proportion of Starfleet a century after the first Anton-class vessels underwent refit. The class served with distinction in the Dominion War and while the class took quite a beating in the conflict many still remained in service at the end of the 2370s.
