Blackbird Class (2318)



As a scout ship the Blackbird class has assignments within major fleet operations as well as independent missions. The ships exceed the performance of their outdated predecessor types by far, concerning speed (Warp 8.3) and weapons (5 phaser emitters, 3 photon torpedo tubes). Ships of this class operate on either side of the Federation border in the Alpha Quadrant. Due to their high velocity, the ships could easily outrun Cardassian or Tholian pursuers. Nevertheless, three Blackbird-class ships were destroyed in combat, five were decommissioned. The ships which are still in service are supposed to be decommissioned soon and will probably be replaced by the Saber class.
