Winston Churchill


The USS Chin'toka boasts an expansive range of auxiliary craft for performing transport tasks and various other mission functions. She is equipped with 3 type 9 shuttles, 5 type 11 shuttles, 2 Argo type shuttles, 5 Danube runabouts, and 4 Volga type shuttles. Valkyrie Mk-1: 5 Argo: 2 Danube: 4 Volga: 4 Worker Bees: 6

The USS Chin'toka is also equipped with a large complement of 5 Peregrine-class Attack fighters, 5 Valkyrie Mk-1 fighters, and six Workbees.

Type 9 Shuttlecraft

These are a more streamlined design, having a pointed front and larger warp nacelles, however it has less internal volume. It can be crewed by a single person if necessary but is outfitted for two pilots and four passengers. It has the greatest range of the shuttlecraft aboard Chin'toka, with a maximum speed of warp 4. It is specifically designed for deep-space scouting missions, even though they are actually smaller than the Type 6.

Type 11 Shuttlecraft

A far more streamlined design than the type-9, one of the most recent addition to Starfleet's array of shuttlecraft. Based on a runabout's design, the Type-11 is twice the size of the Type-9, boasting a dorsal docking clamp and airlock. Type-11s are more heavily armed and shielded than the older shuttlecraft. It also is equipped with a transporter.

Argo-class Shuttlecraft

Argo shuttle.jpg

The Argo Class Shuttle is one of the newest class of shuttle in the Federation, This shuttle is known to be one of the marines favourites. The Argo was designed with recessed warp nacelles and fold-down wings. These wings were designed to assist in atmospheric maneuverability. The shuttle was equipped with an all-terrain buggy that could transport up to three passengers over rugged terrain. The buggy was secured aboard the shuttle's cargo hold via wheel clamps. The shuttlecraft could also be remote controlled from a device on the buggy.

The USS Chin'toka has a complement of two of these shuttles. Each one is named for mythological creatures, mostly from Earth.

  • Kraken
  • Banshee

Danube-class Runabout

The Danube features a front cabin for the crew of pilot, co-pilot/navigator and two mission specialists. A two person transporter is at the rear of the cabin, with swappable mission modules aft of this. The modular nature of the Danube allows it to be configured for missions such as personnel transport, cargo transport, scientific research, tactical, medical, etc.

Danube-class Runabout

  • Production Base: ASDB Integration Facility, Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, Mars
  • Accommodation: Up to 40 passengers
  • Dimensions:
    • Length: 23.1 meters
    • Beam: 13.7 meters
    • Height: 5.4 meters
  • Mass: 158.7 metric tons
  • Performance: Warp 4
  • Armament: Two type-6 phaser emitters; 2 microtorpedo launchers

The USS Chin'toka has a complement of four of these runabouts. Named after Bajoran rivers. Two of which have not been named yet.

  • Holana
  • Saban
  • Salée
  • Sobat

Volga-class Runabout

Developed as a complement to the larger Arrow-class, the Volga-class runabout represents a compromise between providing smaller Starfleet vessels with long-range runabout support and the limited shuttlebay space which is usually available on such ships. Smaller than the type-11 shuttle, the Volga is classified as a runabout due to its ability to independently sustain a crew for a longer period of time and at a longer range.

While large runabouts serve a valued purpose in supporting massive exploration cruisers and starbases, the limited space and maintenance facilities available on smaller starships have kept them from widespread use as auxiliary craft. The Volga-class represents an effort to remove that barrier.

Peregrine-class Attack Fighter

Peregrinefighters.jpg

The Peregrine Fighter was Starfleet's first attempt at a heavy fighter design. It was developed in 2367 and designed to help in fleet actions by causing the enemy vessels to split their fire amongst multiple targets, whilst delivering a powerful punch itself. Capable of a top cruise speed of warp 4.5 it has a similar speed to that of a Valkyrie, allowing it to operate short distances away from its homebase or carrier vessel. However, it is common practice for these vessels to be used at impulse.

Although these ships come in several different models, Starfleet uses the two-man heavy fighter variant. This design has two type U+ pulse phaser cannons as well as the type IV phaser. Optionally six full-sized photon/quantum torpedoes may be used in addition to this - although this has an adverse effect on the ships maneuverability.

Peregrine-class Attack Fighter

  • Production Base: ASDB Integration Facility, Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, Mars
  • Accommodation: Up to 40 passengers
  • Dimensions:
    • Length: 18 meters
    • Beam: 17.5 meters
    • Height: 5.82 meters
  • Performance: Warp 4 (cruising), Warp 4.5 (maximum), Warp 6.1 (for 6hrs)
  • Armament: Two Micro-Torpedo Launchers, Ten Micro-Quantum Torpedoes, Type IV Phaser Array, Two Type U+ Micro-Pulse

The USS Chin'toka has a complement of five of these fighters.

Valkyrie Mk-1 Attack Fighter

Valkyrie.jpg
  • Production Base: ASDB Integration Facility, Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, Mars
  • Accommodation: Two (pilot and operations manager); may be piloted single seat
  • Dimensions:
    • Length: 20 meters
    • Beam: 14 meters
    • Height: 5 meters
  • Mass: 120 metric tons
  • Performance: Thrusters only
  • Armament:
    • Two type-6 phaser emitters
    • One micro-torpedo launch system
    • Two standard photon or quantum torpedoes mounted under the fuselage.

These are the latest additions to the compliment of auxiliary craft for the Chin'toka. Smaller and more agile, Valkyrie class ships will be used for a variety of missions, from planetary assault to spacecraft interdiction. Unlike the Peregrine, the Valkyrie class is intended to be used in small groups, where a local shield can be projected and shared by the fighters during an attack run. Each small ship contributes a portion of its resources to the group shield, thereby savings power to divert to weapons and repair systems.

Workbees

Workbee small.jpg

The "Workbee", or more accurately a cargo management unit (or CMU), is a small utility craft in use by the Federation from the mid-23rd century onwards. The CMU is a single-occupant vehicle with seating for the pilot only. Generally, the pilot needs to be spacesuited, especially if the pilot is planning to perform a space walk. The front of the CMU features several large windows. The craft also has a large headlight at its extreme forward end for illuminating a work area.

As the CMU is primarily a maintenance craft, it can be equipped with a variety of tools, including a set of dual remote manipulator arms called the Grabber Sled. The CMU can also serve as a tug for cargo modules with the Cargo-Train Attachment.

The CMU can operate both in the vacuum of space and within the atmospheric and gravitational conditions of a starship cargo bay or planetary surface.
