Repulse Class Runabout

Based on the awesome Intrepid Class Starship, the Repulse Class combat runabout is an awesome addition to any Starship. The Repulse Class is 50% larger then the Danube Class Runabout. They can achieve a maximum speed of warp 8.1 for 2.5 hours. They are armed with 5 type-X phaser arrays and 4 Micro quantum torpedo launchers. They also have regenerative shielding!
