International Coordinator/Executive One
|ARROW CLASS RUNABOUT |
MFI-VCA-1A - "Executive One"
The heavily armored and protected VCA-1A Arrow Class Runabout currently serves as the official short range transport of the International Coordinator.
The primary focuses of the VCA-1A are:
- Short-distance transport, or covert trnasport for the IC when the Flagship is not appropriate.
- Act as a Base of Operations (orbital or landed) for the IC when in use.
- Transport of IC and other designates.
- Perform tactical missions such as: intelligence gathering (scouting), covert insertion/extraction of personnel, act as a deterrent of threatening situations, etc.
|Used when the Flagship is either not feasable or not appropriate; for instance, a planetary landing when Transporters are deemed not usable, or for seperated missions of the ICs own, this heavily modified Arrow Class Runabout was commissioned to provide such a transport to the IC and/or designates in times when the IC would reqiure such use. As with many protected executive level transports through history, the Vessel always lands with any spectators and security risks to the Port side, because the Office and Cabin of the IC are on the Starboard side. With the IC aboard, the vessel is known as "Executive One," however in the presence of the immediate family or other designates, the vessel is known as "Executive One, Foxtrot."|
VCA-1A Vessels in Service
Upon retirement, the vessel serving the International Coordinator becomes his/her property, with an altered callsign. For instance, as founding International Coordinator, FADM Davis' VCA-1A would be known as "Executive One - Alpha," FADM Johnson's would be known as "Executive One - Beta."
|Arrow Class Runabouts utilize the same "modular" construction in regard to interior makeup. They are compatible with standard Starfleet multi-use compartment modules and are much easier than even the conventional Runabouts being that the warp engines and wings feature a "gull" design which swing open for easy access to the interior.|
The compartment modules fit neatly inside and lock into place for optimum refit capability. The Arrow class is slightly longer than the standard Danube. This affords a somewhat roomier cockpit area, more work stations, and a larger crew complement.
