1/20th the speed of light
The first of the Work Pods entered service in 2220 as construction craft for construction of orbital platforms around Earth and other Federation planets. These industrious craft were quickly found a home in fleet yards across the Federation where they were used to assemble space craft structures such as warp nacelles prior to connecting those structures to the ship under construction. By 2230 the work pods were part of the auxiliary craft complement of many ships in the fleet.
The work pod is composed of two different sections. The main section is the rounded pilots cabin. This cabin is pressurized allowing the pilot to operate the craft in the standard uniform. The cabin can be depressurized to allow the pilot to carry out EVA operations. The cabin also housed the ship's life support, communication, and flight control thrusters. There is a large access hatch at the aft end of the cabin that allows access to the pods systems for maintenance. The upper section of the cabin's forward view port slides to the rear providing a point of entry for the pilot. There are two small manipulator arms located in the rear of the cabin with one arm mounted to the port side and the other to the starboard side of the systems access hatch. The second section is the drive section. This section houses the main drive thrusters and a craddle for multiple tools that can be used in conjunction with the manipulator arms to carryout various construction or maintenance tasks. There were two spot lights mounted to the forward end of the drive section along with two larger manipulator arms with a arm on the port and the other on the starboard side of the drive section.
