General Overview

The Miranda Class was introduced to fleet service in the latter half of the 23rd century. Miranda Class ships typically performed survey & patrol assignments. Despite their small size, Mirandas performed satisfactorily. Several series and variants of these ships were produced throughout the 23rd and 24th centuries, with many still serving in the fleet through the mid 2370s. The design filled a number of different mission profiles, including acting as Supply ships , Science vessels. These vessels served in a large number of engagements during the Dominion War. Used primarily as escorts, many were subsequently lost. The Maquis later found that they could reconfigure the Miranda Clas for Fighter and Shuttle Carrier duty.


All Miranda-class starships have a saucer section making up the majority of the vessel. The saucer is similar to that of a Constitution-class, but with a bulkier aft end with shuttlebays and a Warp core. Below the saucer, at the aft edges, are the nacelle pylons connected to the warp nacelles.

There are five configurations of the Miranda-class.

  • The Reliant configuration, which is the most common configuration, had a "roll bar" above the nacelle pylons. The "roll bar" had two phaser emitters on each side that can fire foward and aft, along with 2 forward and 2 rear firing photon torpedo launchers.
  • The Lantree configuration: These lacked the "roll bar" and featured only Class 3 defensive armaments. This type of Miranda class was apparently suitable for transport duty.
  • The Saratoga configuration: These lacked the "roll bar", and had two large sensor pods installed on the port and starboard sides of the ship. It also had a modern solid-beam phaser array mounted on the lower part of the sensor dome.
  • The Majestic configuration: These had the "roll bar", but the warp nacelles were different from the other Miranda configurations, along with some other details which could indicate a further design variant or refits to the original Reliant configuration.
  • The Independence Configuration: These ships virtually gutted Decks 6 and 7 to make way for a much more expansive shuttle bay. Doing this allows the Carrier to ferry a variety of smaller craft providing both protection within her hull for transport, as well as providing orbital cover while making landing operations.
