Enterprise Era Cutter by HandofManos Enterprise Era Cutter by HandofManos
As per request I am posting an older small ship design. It was basically a jump warp capable cutter for system policing and patrol duties in the early days of the Federation.

It has limited weapons capability, in the form of dual nose mounted pulse cannon and a missile launcher in its wing, yet that is enough for its role.

The crew would consist out of a pilot, weaponsofficer, commander and a engineer (with the possibility of some additional security officers for boarding).

The forward view made me think for a second that the Nav-Deflector disc might have been contained in a hemisphere.  I still think it a cool idea.

By the way...I use some of your hull designs for non-Trek RPGs.  They're pretty sensible, and have thematic deniability.

Yup always liked the idea of smaller support ships doing the 'simple' stuff so starships can do their jobs

So there must be a boarding crew. Marines maybe? Or ship security?

Sounds interesting but this is quite an old piece of work and as such I have moved on to other projects :) I think this ship is too small for a shuttle anyway and it will land itself on a surface of a planet.

Land on the planet? Then I understand, this should work like the old PT boats, design among other things black ops insertion. OH!
