The Miranda class was a light cruiser design in service to Starfleet during the 23rd and 24th centuries.
It design paralleled the extremely similar Anton class.
In 2270 the class began undergoing refits similar to the Constitution class, to amazing success. Starfleet Command was so impressed with the results they began building the refit models from scratch for over six decades and some were still in service a century later.
During the 2340's two dozen were sold to allied powers, such as the Keltic Confederation.
Even at over a century older hundreds of Miranda 's participated in the Dominion War.
The Soyuz class border patrol cutters were based on the Miranda frame.
