Mission Objectives

The Arrow Class Runabout was designed to complete four general mission types.

  1. Short Notice and/or Emergency Response Transportation for Scientific Expeditions or Medical Personnel.
  2. Act as a Base of Operations (orbital or landed) for Scientific Expeditions or Medical Response.
  3. Transport of: personnel, intact experiment and/or cargo modules.
  4. Perform tactical missions such as: intelligence gathering (scouting), covert insertion/extraction of personnel, act as a deterrent of threatening situations, etc.

General Overview

With the Maquis spy network growing within the headquarters of Starfleet Command, plans for a new class of Runabout were transmitted to Empok Nor, the Maquis' HQ in the Badlands. This experimental class is everything the current Danube Class ships are plus much more. The sleeker, state of the art design borrow elements from the latest shuttlecraft, Delta Flyer prototype, and traditional Runabouts.

MFS Athena and many of her sister ships are undergoing test and shakedowns to serve as another fleet of multipurpose craft for the Maquis. This prototype is classified as an Interceptor as will two other craft of her class. Others incorporate, like their cousin Runabout Fleet, specific task oriented equipment to support missions for the Maquis.

With the success of the first squadron of Arrow Class Experimental Runabouts, a second squadron is being commissioned. This squadron of Arrows will be outfitted with equipment and instrumentation which can be for a variety of tasks and missions.
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.

The Cockpit and each module may be used as Emergency Escape Pods, complete with independent Life Support systems, RCS Thrusters and Combat Rations. As shown in the diagrams below, should the need arise for Emergency Egress, the entire warp engine section may be jettisoned, freeing all the Modules for independent flight.
