The Last Armada class Scout is a warship.
The Scout is a historical design produced in the Terran Confederation during the early 22nd century. These ships took part in the desperate exodus following the Destruction of Terra at the hands of the Vilani Imperium in 2147AD, forming a part of the Last Armada and carrying with them the last remnants of Terran culture and independence. The class were extremely sturdy and reliable and endured more than a century of spaceflight. They ultimately found and settled the Demon Cluster, the Distant Fringe. The vessel is constructed as a long-range design and has extended range capability.
- The vessel is a TL-11 design.
Basic Ship Characteristics
Following the Imperial Navy and IISS Universal Ship Profile and data, additional information is presented in the format shown here. The small craft factor indicates the number of squadrons (of ten craft) carried on the ship. Tonnage on the universal ship profile is shown in kilotons (thousands of tons) where necessary.

History & Background (Dossier)
Scouts operating with the Last Armada would be dispatched to recon surrounding systems along the fleet's projected path of advance. They performed reconnaissance, searching for fuel sources and assessing potential threats. As a result they occasionally became unintentional first contact vessels. To this day, some Sophont species with their homeworlds lying to rimward of Terra have "UFO" stories that can in all probability be traced back to these ships. Vessels of this type are known to have explored the Cauldron Nebula, within Cauldron Sector.
In rift areas Scouts were used to search for potential fuel sources such as orphan comets or icy-dusty nebular materials. These could be condensed and refined for use by the fleet.
