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!
January: Starfleet issues a brief for an improved Runabout. General brief is as follows. A larger version of the Danbue Class Runabout capable of holding 25 crew in emergency situations. Capable of a maximum of warp 8 and fitted with heavier arms and shields. To be able to transport people into and out of hazardous areas.
March: ASDB release a general idea to Starfleet initially coded the Repulse Class. Project is approved.
October: Design work completed and prototype begins construction
May: Basic space frame is laid out according to the design. Scaled down Intrepid class design used, with few modifications. Computer core from a Danube Class installed. Improved warp engine is also developed from the Danube Class engine.
July: Warp engine is fitted, computer core is deemed operational and basic testing on the ship begins.
December: Ship passes all regulatory control and proceeds with testing.
April: Ship is proved to be operational and Starfleet examines the performance. USS Repulse is commissioned and Starfleet places an order for 165 ships to be distributed within the Federation.
