The Huron-type was a small 23rd century Federation starship identified as a freighter.

Specifications

This class of vessel was commonly used during the 2260s and 2270s to transport such cargoes as dilithium. It was capable of operating with a crew of as few as three. Susceptible to pirate attacks, this class was significantly inferior to an Orion vessel. (TAS: "The Pirates of Orion")

Design

The Huron-type was rather complicated in overall design compared to contemporary vessels of the era.

It was constructed on a horizontal spaceframe with the standard two-nacelle configuration. Jutting below the main spaceframe were the ship's cargo holds. The bridge was located in the upper foremost position of the vessel. Several nacelle like extremities were located on the ship's forward most section.

The Huron-type was significantly inferior, in both speed and firepower, to the contemporary Orion pirate vessels of the time. (TAS: "The Pirates of Orion")

Interior

Main bridge

The Huron-type bridge could be maintained by a crew of as few as three. The bridge, which did not possess a captain's chair, had a forward console for both the navigator and helmsman facing the viewscreen. Facing the rear bulkhead of the bridge was an aft console with a single chair. (TAS: "The Pirates of Orion")

Cargo hold

This class of vessel possessed large cargo holds capable of transporting such cargo as dilithium. (TAS: "The Pirates of Orion")

Ships of the class

The USS Huron is the only known ship to use the "F" letter prefix in the registry number, NCC-F1913.
