The Vahklas class was in operation during the early part of the 2100's as a civilian transport. This class was out of general use by the 2150's but was still operated by groups within the Vulcan population such as the V'tosh ka'tur.
The Vahklas class was a single hull design. The main portion of the hull was the aft section that hosed the warp and impulse drives along bulk of the interior volume of the ship. The Ship's primary systems were also located in this section. The forward section was a split design resembling two prongs on the forward section of the ships. These prongs housed the ship's secondary systems. The sensor and communications equipment were also located in these prongs. The ships of this class had docking ports on the port and starboard side of the ship that were the primary entry and exit points of the ships.
Unlike the majority of known Vulcan craft the Vahklas class was equipped with warp nacelles instead of the more familiar design element of the Induction loop. The nacelles were shaped like semi-circles. These semi-circle nacelles are positioned with one on the port and the other on the starboard side of the ship with the ends of the arcs pointing inward. The ships twin impulse engines were housed within the ships hull and were positioned in the aft ventral section of the ship.
While the ships were not ever expected to undertake combat operations the Vahklas class was equipped with two particle beam emitters for defence in the event the ship were to come under attack . On of the emitters was mounted to the dorsal surface of the ships hull and the other was mounted to the ventral surface of the hull. To protect the ships from the hazardous conditions that could be encountered the ships of the Vahklas class were equipped with deflector screens.
