Name Description
SS Star of India
Van Dyne Yellowstone class was equipped with tetryon plasma warp nacelles and designed for a variety of mission profiles. The pilot(s) could vent this plasma behind the ship and potentially disrupt the warp drive of other starships. Ideally, a runabout was piloted by two persons (although one pilot would suffice). The pilots' consoles faced forward upon two large portholes. The cockpit had stations for up to four crewmembers. The two large portholes were equipped with retractable blast shutters. Small square viewscreens mounted within the forward corners of the cabin were used for visual communication and ship status displays. The class was also equipped with an aft tractor beam emitter. This emitter could be used to tow moderately-sized starships and was used at times for towing at warp velocities.
Gagle At 4.5 meters long, 3.1m wide and 1.8m high, these shuttlepods were capable of accommodating up to two flight crew and four passengers or cargo. They were used for evacuation, planetary surface operations and ship-to-ship transfers. In their standard configuration, the Type-18 was only equipped with phaser armaments, however, they could be mounted with numerous other small weapons systems should the need arise. Although the Type-18 shuttlepod was limited to sublight speeds under its own propulsion, if released from its mothership while at warp speed, it was capable of sustaining the superluminal velocity by generating its own subspace field.
