Ship History

General Overview: The Kaneda Class Space Superiority Fighter was born in 2366, nearly ten years after the launch of the Danube Class Runabout. The design was based on the Danube Class Runabout. 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 Class.

The Kaneda Class Refit now has a crew of 1. New heads up display and single user interface saves the need for an additional weapons officer. Directly Aft of the Pilot 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 10 torpedoes in their onboard magazines. The Type VI Shuttle Class Phaser Emitters are removed in favor of two forward Type XII Pulse Phaser Cannons. Rear mounted point defense system has replaced the rear Phaser Emitter to provide additional fighter survival. To increase combat effectiveness against capital vessels, the Kaneda Class can also mount 2 Mark XXV Photon/Quantum Torpedoes outboard along the bottom of the craft.

Note: the Kaneda Class Refit is also without a warp core and is limited to impulse velocities.
