The Miranda-class starship was a type of starship introduced by Starfleet in the late 23rd century and remained in use through the late 24th.
The mission profile of the Miranda-class varied from performing various scientific roles to conducting patrol duties (A good all round Ship. Quoted ‘’Benjamin sisko’’). The Miranda-class was present in several major Federation engagements against the Borg, including the Battle of Wolf 359 and the Battle of Sector 001.
They were also present in numerous Dominion War battles, where they often served as escorts. Many ships of the class saw action during Operation Return, the First and Second Battles of Chin’toka, and the Battle of Cardassia. Many Miranda-class vessels were stationed near Deep Space 9.
