2265 – Archer

The Archer class scout was designed for use as an independent light scout/explorer in contested areas. Capable of landing on planets as part of its role, the Archer was notable for packing a considerable punch in its small size, with the Mk1 mounting an FP2 photon system in its nimble class II hull (although only 12 reloads can be carried). Three single FH4s were mounted (1FS,1FP and 1A) covering all arcs of fire.

The Mk2 mounted the FSD shield giving a marginal improvement over the Mk1. The later Mk3 offered much enhanced Photon torpedoes, with the new FP7 fitted, although this was at the expense of the rear phaser owing to limits imposed by the L14 computer. In compensation though another four reloads are now carried in the former phaser bay, although these have to be carried through the ship by hand for loading into the forward launcher.

The Archer is not designed as a combat ship, but as an independent scout it is capable of an extremely robust defence.
