LUG Timeline
(Last Unicorn and Decipher Roleplaying Games)

The second class authorized by Starfleet's Perimeter Defense Directive (PDD), the Steamrunner class of heavy frigates borrowed numerous design specifications from its larger Akira class cousins. Quick and maneuverable, Steamrunner class vessels served with distinction in every Federation conflict since the class was first commissioned in 2369.[1][2]

Designed for a fairly specific group of mission profiles, the Steamrunner class also borrowed heavily from technologies developed for the Defiant Project, including a less vulnerable nacelle configuration, ship components that could be jettisoned during battle, a reduced area of active sensor coverage, and, as with all larger PDD classes, multilayer ablative hull armoring. Coupled with the already formidable armaments of the class, these advances contributed to the conventional wisdom that the various ship classes authorized by the PDD represented the next wave of starship design and construction.[1][2]
