Auxiliary Vehicle Roster and Descriptions

Shuttlecraft - Since many things may affect a shipís ability to transfer cargo and personnel with the Transporters it is necessary to carry a supplementary system. Shuttle craft range in size depending on their function, as described in the chart below.

Runabout - A larger version of the Shuttle craft. Although in terms of Weapons and defence it is perhaps equivalent to a ship twice itís size itís ability, itís range is limited. It can not maintain that level of activity for more than a short time and has a maximum of Warp Factor 3.

Danube
Transport up to 6 diplomatic personnel. Warp capable. Long range. The most advanced form of Runabout the Federation has. The USS Torrens was a Danube Class.
Sydney Class
Earliest Class of Runabout Starship.
