Ship History

General Overview: The Kaneda Space Superiority Fighter was born in 2366, nearly ten years after the launch of the Danube Class Runabout and which was the source of the basic design used. While Starfleet had utilized small Starfighters before, all were modified shuttlecraft or other small utility vehicles, preferring to utilize existing designs and technologies rather than develop Space Fighter specific craft.

The Kaneda is a sharp departure in this line of thinking, but still based on existing technology. Utilizing the Impulse Engine Configuration, Computer Core, and Modular frame upon which the Danube Class was built, the Advanced Starship Design Bureau of Utopia Planitia lifted those components exactly and integrated them into a space frame nearly identical, but slightly smaller, to the Danube Class.

The Kaneda Class has a crew of 2, a pilot and an operations/weapons officer sitting side by side. Directly Aft of the Pilots compartment are the Impulse Engines, Computer Core, Micro-Torpedo magazines, Primary and Emergency Fusion Generators, Primary Phaser Generators, the Shield Generators and other necessary systems. The fighter is also armed with two micro-torpedo launchers that can carry up to 20 torpedoes in their onboard magazines, and also sports two Type VI Shuttle Class Phaser Emitters to cover both the forward and aft firing arcs. To increase combat effectiveness against capital vessels, the Kaneda Class can also mount 4 Mark XXV Photon Torpedoes outboard along the bottom of the craft.

Note: the Kaneda class comes standard without a warp core. She is limited to sublight impulse operations. This does not mean she cannot be modified to utilize such technology, but it was determined that with the Akira's warp engines, equipping the fighters was expensive, time consuming, increased operational repair times, and did not give the fighter any added benefit.
