The Snipe-class was a Romulan frigate starship in Imperial Star Navy service in the 23rd century, becoming active on stardate 2251.0. The Snipe vessels were built on the standard small bird-of-prey hull spaceframe. (ST video game: Starfleet Command)

Standard configuration[edit | edit source]

The vessels crewed 10, with space to carry 4 marine troops for deployment. Additionally, the Snipe was loaded with a single standard personnel transporter and also a single tractor beam. A berth for one Romulan shuttlecraft was standard to these vessels.

The basic Snipe (Snipe "A" configuration) had a plasma torpedo launcher and two phaser emitters. The vessels were defended by standard deflector shields. In most cases, a cloaking device was outfitted.

Snipe-AR configuration[edit | edit source]

The "AR" configuration of stardate 2265.0 was essentially identical to the standard Snipe "A", with minor differences in armament. Specifically, the "AR" had an additional two rear phasers.

Snipe-B battle frigate configuration[edit | edit source]

Introduced on stardate 2279.0, the "B" configuration was a battle frigate essentially identical to the standard Snipe, with some differences in armament. In particular, the Snipe had two additional wing mounted plasma launchers.

The Snipe "P" police frigate configuration of stardate 2250.0 was a modification designed to give the ship enhanced power management, with the removal of the standard cloaking device.

Snipe-P+ advanced police frigate configuration[edit | edit source]
