Niagara Fast Cruiser
Description:

The Niagara Fast Cruiser is a cruiser hull designed at the same time as the Ambassador Heavy Cruiser. Where the Ambassador was built to maximize the amount of firepower on a single starship frame, the Niagara was instead designed to be faster and more manueverable than other mainline cruisers.

The design proved wanting, with the extra speed and tactical flexibility of a third warp nacelle being overridden by frequent break downs and other maintenance problems. The Niagara was kept in service as a priority courier and deep range patrol ship, but it did not see as much services as other Federation hulls.

Design Notes:


There isn't much information about this ship type, so I designed it to fit in a role not filled by the Excelsior or Ambassador. The Niagara is
faster than both of them, but lacks the firepower of either of those hulls.
