Raging Queen Cruiser
Description:
The Federation’s need for Shelley Military Transports was lessened as several newer, larger military freighter hulls were introduced in the early part of the 24th Century. The Excelsior and its brood, though yet the war-horses of the fleet, were beginning to feel their age.

Shelley Transports began being sold off to non-Starfleet interests, including civilian military contractors. The bulk of these hulls were refitted with cheaper, more reliable Constitution refit type warp nacelles to decrease the cost of operating the hulls. Also, the ships’ cargo holds were removed in favor of improved phaser firepower and more hangar space. These cruisers served as convoy escorts or courier haulers, transporting Peregrine-class Couriers to distant border worlds.

The Dominion War led to the conscription of the Raging Queen Cruisers. The ships were capable auxiliary carriers and were operated as such. The Peregrine Strike Fighters operated from Raging Queen Cruisers supported those launched by other carriers, such as the Akira Strike Cruiser, and were invaluable in several battles.

Despite their utility, Raging Queens were unprepared for modern warfare and were destroyed in droves by Jem’hadar attack ships. After the war the Federation estimated that 72% of all Raging Queen Cruisers ever constructed had been destroyed or damaged beyond repair by the Dominion.

Design Notes:
I theorized that this ship was related to merchant service somehow, as the Raging Queen lacked an U.S.S. prefix to its name, yet had an NCC number. Given that it is closely associated with the Shelley (Curry) I decided to make the ship very close to that hull in abilities.
