1.3 GENERAL OVERVIEW
capable shuttlecraft was issued in the 2340s. The development of such a
capable shuttle was to be capable of short and medium range missions
assignments. The original Type-10 runabouts were created, but soon we
be limited in their size. The development of the Danube-Class runabouts
2363. They were first introduced in 2368. The Danube-Class runabouts
front cabin for four. The pilot, co-pilot/operations, and two mission
specialists. There is also a two person transporter in the rear of the
cabin. Aft of the front cabin are the mission specific modules. Based
nature of the modular design, the runabout can be converted to other
mission-type specific requirements such as personnel transporter, cargo
transporter, scientific expeditions, tactical assignments, prison
medical transports, etc. There is also an optional photon
on the top of the Danube-Class runabout.The Danube-Class runabout is
highly customizable and for extended travel, the rear of the craft can
be configured as a large cabin with sleeping (bunk beds) and dining
areas. In normal cases, this rear area is generally used as a cargo bay.

B - AUTHOR'S NOTES
each runabout was named after a river on Earth?
it is true the
ones we have seen on DS9 were named after rivers on Earth, this may
just be the
preference of the station commander.
runabout is older than the Intrepid.
many are there?
have no idea. We have seen
quite a few of them blown up on DS9. Some websites list the number in
the 600s or 700s. A few have them in the 1000s.
