Orion Scout Ship
|Date Entered Service:||
Small, Fast and highly maneuverable the Orion Scout Ship was perfectly designed for its role as a fast scout ship that was used to gather first hand information on areas of space poorly explored not yet entered into by the Orion Syndicate. With extensive sensor and computer systems these ships could quickly gather sensor data and process that data for review and cataloging by the ships crew who were always on the look out for targets for other Orion ships to raid.
The Orion Scout Ship was first encountered in 2257 by the USS Enterprise as they transferred Federation delegates to Babel for a conference. during this encounter the ship remained at the extreme limits of the Enterprise's sensors and little data was gathered during during this initial encounter. What was discovered that the scout ship was capable of high speeds. At one point the ship was observed travailing at was warp ten on the old warp scale or warp 7.945 on the current scale.
The Scout ship had a single oblong hull of high density tritanium hull that imparted protection from sensor sweeps of the interior volume of the ship. There was an aft spine extended from the rear of the hull that connected the ships hull to the propulsion unit. The propulsion unit consisted of a large vertical ring and eight rotating units that glowed with an yellow/orange light when operation. the rotating units were located on the end of support columns that rotated around the aft spine within the ring. The units were arranged into two groups of four and the two groups rotated around the aft spine in opposite directions.
The Orion Scout ships were lightly armed and primarily relied on their high speed capabilities to escape danger. The ships were equipped with two phaser pods with each mounted to a support column. One pod was located above the ship's hull and the other below the ship's hull. This arrangment left the aft firing arc unprotected
