Mosquito Class (2354)

Towards the middle of the 24th century the Advanced Starship Design Bureau (ASDB) devised plans for a new ship type, informally dubbed "runabout", with a size in between a usual personnel transport and a shuttlecraft. The existing designs in this size range were often older than 50 years and their retirement was due. The new Mosquito class combines sufficient cargo capacity and a relatively high velocity and long operation range. Up to 60 passengers can be accommodated, with an emergency limit of 250. The designation as runabout is official since the Danube class has been introduced in 2369. Nevertheless, there are considerable differences between the two runabout classes. The Mosquito class is much larger and faster, however, its fabrication is more extensive and it requires a crew complement of four in normal operation. In addition, this runabout version is not designed to use standard shuttle bays in starbases. The Mosquito class is currently being built in large numbers.
