Runabout Design by HandofManos Runabout Design by HandofManos
A runabout design for a pre TNG era starship or station for that matter. It is somewhat smaller the regular Danube Class but is more sleeker.

It is basically a design I felt like doing after the frigate came to a hold :)

Nice design. Looks like Starfleet got ahold of a pelican dropship from HALO, and decided to make their own.

Looks interesting, almost like a fusion between the Arrow class runabouts and the Danube or Yellowstone classes of runabouts

Thanks that aint bad. It is slightly smaller I guess. Never worked on it after this since it would have been part of several designs

yup it was the idea to make several units, starships and their support craft.

....even though runabouts aren't starship support craft but registered starships?

Ah but this is for a near future (star trek wise) so they might have broken the naming regulations open :D

OK, so why aren't the main design artist for all Star Trek movies and all other things Star Trek? Because your designs is to good to remain the the realm of fan art, they deserve much more. :)

True, but I've never seen such a cool shuttle design in the episodes I've seen.

far better than the Danube - looks like it can fly let alone work.

Excellent work - needs stats if you have any :)

Stats wise it is obviously somewhat smaller the the Danube but is still quite capable. Having a crew of 3 (pilot, navigator, ops) and a capability to carry additional personel. Having its own transporter (single) and 2 small quarters and a galley. 2 Pulse lasers (front at the side extrusions) and 3 phaser emiters (2xfront at the top of the canopy and 1xaft). It has no room for a torpedo launcher. Additional modules (Sensors etc) can be added on hardpoints located on its back behind the deflectordish (the areas on both sides of the exposed machinery)

Max speed is warp 4.25 compared to the newer Danube which has warp 5 as its max.

Wonder how many merchants started using those for light cargo runs when they first came out?

Wow, Nice work! Its always to see an evolution of a Federation ship; design lineage! This small craft would definitely be the predecessor to the Danuabe Class Runabout!

Thanks it is quite possible that it is even in service in TNG and beyond eras but then on smaller ships and stations.

Very nice design concept. Not sure about "pre TNG era", because it would fit in pretty well with that and since the Enterprise-D was comissioned in 2363 and you put 2364 on there, that'd be right in the middle of TNG! ;)

I definitely like it!

very nice. like a mix of the delta flyer and a runabout. also, a little of the shuttle data was flying in insurrection
