Yeah, but then why would the Federation hang on to the Miranda's and variants so long? I don't believe they were so much more technically excellent than the Constitutions, and they were still flying come Deep Space 9!

The ship in Star Trek IV was the USS Ranger. The real USS Enterprise was on deployment at the time the movie was being filmed, so Ranger was used as a stand-in.

Whoops I was wrong...Not Kitty Hawk.

According to Memory Alpha...
In Star Trek IV, the "part" of USS Enterprise was actually filled by the conventionally-powered USS Ranger (CV-61, Forrestal class), because Enterprise was on deployment at the time of the movie's filming. Retrieved from "http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Aircraft_carrier"

Probably because they were easier to build and easier to upgrade than the Constitutions.

Another possibility: We don't know exactly when the Constitution-class was officially retired. There was the wreckage of a Constitution-class secondary hull floating in the ruins at Wolf 359 in TNG's "Best of Both Worlds, part 2".

It's a big fleet, and it's logical that not every ship design can be seen in different parts of the Galaxy...

In those Dominion fleet battles in Deep Space 9, i would have loved to see a Constitution class come swooping in and deliver a photon torpedo or two! Take that
Dominion Swine!

Even people who don't like Star Trek like that film. My little cousin is an animal lover and she likes it because of the whales. My aunt likes it because Dr. McCoy gives an old lady a new kidney.

"Oh I got a new Kidney!"

There really were some great memorable scenes in that movie. I mean alot. It was the most enjoyable film trek put out. I think that's what Insurrection was supposed to be something like that.
