The Steamrunner-class is a class of Federation starship that served in Starfleet in the latter half of the twenty-fourth century.


General Overview

The Steamrunner-class went into production in 2371 as part of Starfleet's response to the Dominion's larger, disposable Jem'Hadar fleets as well as the continuing Borg threat. The ship's mission profile includes perimeter patrol and defense, long-range threat response, covert operations, and combat support.

Like the Akira-class, the Steamrunner-class features a large, through-saucer shuttlebay. Steamrunner-class starships can be armed with high-yield tri-cobalt devices in addition to standard photon and quantum torpedoes.

The Steamrunner-class, along with the Saber-class, pioneers a new, compact mounting of the warp nacells directly into the primary hull rather than on traditional pulons. This new design feature is made possible thanks to improvements in radiation shielding technology, allowing the ship's crew increased protection from the warp field generators.
