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.
