Class Description

Diplomacy is the stock-in-trade of the Federation's interstellar relations, and there are never enough truly skilled diplomats available to manage the multitude of matters which require their attention. In an effort to maximize the use that they can get out of the excellent personnel they do have, Starfleet requested a design from the Corps of Engineers for a small craft which could match the long-range speed of a full starship and sustain itself for at least a month of independent operations. The runabout which resulted from this brief, ironically dubbed the Warhammer by one of its principal designers, is a model of efficiency. Its compact warp engines waste less than 1% of their total energy consumption even at emergency speeds, and even in a low-power state its life support systems can keep six humanoids alive for as much as six months without external resupply.

Shortly after the introduction of the class, however, the Dominion War placed unanticipated combat demands on those small craft which available. Noting the high speed and signifigant internal volume of the runabout, a frontline engineer gutted the passenger spaces of four Warhammers and added a pair of micro-torpedo launchers with a considerable magazine. The result was a fast, light bomber which was used with considerable effect during the war, and the configuration remains a popular modification with those Starbases which operate near potentially hostile areas.
