The Dauntless Class was born out of the Dominion War. When the war began Star Fleet began looking for a ship that could easily establish supply lines and act as a transport for civilians and POW’s. Since they were not able to take any ships off the line for this they were forced to design a new class. Before the first year of the war had passed Star Fleet had built 15 Dauntless Class ships. Because of the rushed construction they were unarmed and constantly breaking down. When the war was over they slowly began to get refits that fixed much of the construction problems and were given 2 Type X Phasers and 2 Aft Photon Torpedo Launchers. The Dauntless also features a unique modular interior so the ship can be quickly modified for a specific mission. (Not included in this model, maybe the next version though). It has the opinion of Barracks for 1,500 soldiers, Quarters for 1,000 Civilians, Holding Cells for 2,000 POW’s, Hangers for an additional 50 fighters/shuttles, and Cargo Bays which can carry up to 20,000 metric tons.
