The Ranger-class was a type of scout in service to the Federation in the 23rd century. This model of ships replaced the aging Ranger-class explorer. Task Force 13 consisted entirely of Ranger-class scouts. (FASA RPG module: Federation Ship Recognition Manual, FASA RPG module: The Strider Incident)

History and specifications[]

The structure of a Ranger-class ship is split across three decks, all located in the saucer-section. Deck One contains personnel areas, including quarters, the mess hall, the gymnasium, and sickbay. Deck One also contain the ship's torpedo tubes, and life support systems. Deck Two noticeably contains the ship's bridge, and also contains the ship's computers, weapons systems, water systems, science labs, and airlock. Deck Three contains Engineering, shield generators, the brig, the armory, and the shuttlebay. The USS Strider equipped this bay with two shuttlepods. Transporters and airlocks are located on both decks two and three, and storage can be found on all three decks.

Ranger-class vessels crewed 77, with space to carry 6 Starfleet Marines troops for deployment. Additionally, Rangers could carry 1000 metric tons of cargo, rated at 20 SCU (standard cargo units). Unloaded, the Ranger scouts weighed 59,145 metric tons and measured 87 meters in length, 57 meters in width and 21 meters in height.

The Ranger computers were of the M-2 type, and the vessels were loaded with a standard (6 person) personnel transporter, and a larger 22-person emergency transporter. There were also 2 Federation shuttlecraft standard to these vessel shuttlebays. A Ranger's warp engines were FWB-2 type, rated to cruise at warp factor 8 and max out at warp factor 9 (original warp scale measurement). The impulse engines were of the FIB-3 type, and Rangers had 4 FH-6 phaser emitters, in across two phaser banks, with arcs of fire to fore as well as port and starboard. The vessels had FP-7 photon torpedo launchers and were defended by FSH model deflector shields. (FASA RPG module: The Strider Incident)

The "Ranger-class scout" was one of several classes of ships referred to as "Ranger Class" in the late 23rd century. It shared this name with the older Ranger-class explorer, and the more contemporary Ranger-class battlecruiser.
