The Centaur is to the Excelsior what the Miranda is to the Constitution, designed to fill a destroyer billet while using much the same components of the Excelsior class, then a heavy cruiser. As such, the saucer section and warp nacelles used by the Centaur are identical in dimensions to the original Excelsior class design.

Equipped with a much smaller engineering hull than the Excelsior, barely large enough to hold the navigational deflector, torpedo tubes and the warp drive, the internal volume of the saucer section therefore holds most of the ship's systems.

The ship has one shuttle bay facing forward, on the dorsal surface of the saucer section. This is unusual, however there was no other place to put it. The Centaur class is an ideal vessel for convoy escort duties or to defend larger vessels against fighters.

There are fewer Centaur class ships in service than the design's capabilities would lead one to expect, this is largely due to the success of the Miranda class, available in so large numbers and giving such a good account of itself in fleet engagements that Starfleet decided to build just enough Centaur class ships to replace those Miranda class vessels being lost.

When the Miranda finally fell behind the technological edge and was relegated to support roles, however, Starfleet had other, more modern designs that could fill the role, such as the Norway. This makes the Centaur a rare sight, even though she is a good ship.
