Kestrel class (STO)
The Kestrel class runabout was designed for longer-distance missions with a small crew. The class was quick and mobile, but tougher and more dangerous than the Tiercel class shuttlecraft. The Kestrel class had a small, highly-efficient singularity warp core capable of using quantum absorption to protect the ship. The class was equipped with a cloaking device, and was armed with two forward-facing weapons emplacements, typically mounting an omnidirectional plasma bank and micro-plasma torpedoes.
