Scorpio Class II Corvette

Scorpio Class II Corvette

Notes - circa 2330:

           The Scorpio Class corvettes have been commissioned to supplement Star Fleet's monitors, most of which are restricted to in-system or near-base patrols because of their sub-Iight engines. The Scorpio Class is lightweight and warp-capable, thus extending the defensive range of the bases or systems that require protection. These small ships are expected to improve the overall defensive posture of the UFP by allowing capital ships to operate for longer periods in sensitive areas.
           The corvettes are organized into groups consisting of 12 ships operating in 3 flights of 4 ships each. At the present time, there are 15 operational groups with plans for an additional 45. The operational groups are assigned as follows: The 1st, 2nd and 5th Pursuit Groups at Starbase 10; the 3rd, 6th and 7th Pursuit Groups at Starbase 12; the 4th, 8th, and 9th Pursuit Groups at Starbase 20; the 1st Andorian, 10th, and 11th Pursuit Groups at Starbase 27; the 2nd Andorian, and 12th Pursuit Groups at Starbase 15; and the 13th Pursuit Group at Starbase 14.
           Though the original design for the Scorpio came from Andorian contractors, construction contracts were awarded to the shipyards at Morena and Salazaar, the latter being an Andorian-operated facility. Like so many Andorian designs, these vessels are made to close quickly with their enemies and deal crippling or fatal blows. The highly efficient FWA-1 warp engines allow the corvettes to rapidly surround an enemy vessel, causing it to divert power to an all-around defense, and therefore, weakening its offensive capability.
           These ships carry only two FH-1 phasers and one FP-3 photon torpedo, but they are considered to have sufficient offensive power to deter pirates, smugglers, and small enemy warships from operating in their patrol areas.
           The Morena and Salazaar shipyards are currently producing approximately 180 Scorpio Class corvettes per year. Of the 192 ships built, 180 remain in active service, and 12 are assigned to Star Fleet Training Command.
