The scout ship was an Orion scout starship class in service to the Orion Syndicate and Orion pirates in the mid-23rd century. This class was first encountered by the Federation in 2268, when the Syndicate attempted to derail a Babel Conference. (TOS episode: "Journey to Babel")

History and specificationsEdit

Orion scout ship Trexelprise

Encounter with the Trexelprise.

The Syndicate dispatched such a scout ship to derail the conference on Babel about the admission of Coridan Prime to the United Federation of Planets. When the Federation Starfleet starship USS Enterprise blew the Orion ruse, the hitherto unidentified intruder vessel engaged the Enterprise in combat at high warp. At these velocities, the scout ship was much more maneuverable and evaded Enterprise's phasers and photon torpedoes. When the Enterprise succeeded in disabling the scout ship, its crew chose to self destruct rather than be captured. (TOS episode: "Journey to Babel")

Starfleet encountered numerous Orion scout ships in the sectors of the Trexelian Expanse. They competed with the USS Trexelprise and USS Trexelprise-D for resources but were no match for the Constitution- and Galaxy-class starships. This ship type was still active in the 24th century, encountering the USS Voyager-V in the 2370s decade. (ST video game: Trexels)

Following the update to Star Trek: Trexels v.1.7.1, the contents of the space resource mini-game were scaled up. The Orion scout ship received a more detailed design as well. Originally, the scout ship was shorter than a Constitution-class starship's saucer, afterwards it was half the length of an Intrepid-class ship.
