Description (Specifications)

Scout vessels serve a wide variety of missions from civilian to paramilitary to military taskings. The scout ship is traditionally considered a paramilitary vessel. Scouts often serve survey functions for a private or commercial entity, and military reconnaissance missions for military owners. The difference between such hulls is typically minimal. It's the mission that differs, not the craft. [1]

Strategy & Tactics (Doctrine)

Scout Vessels are not intended for combatant roles. The role of a scout is to reconnoiter star systems, deep space, and the enemy's movements, relaying vital intelligence back to combat fleets, thus enhancing their combat effectiveness. While many scout vessels are armed, such armament is mostly to discourage piracy, raiders, and other vessels from taking advantage of small, lightly armed vessels. Many scouts fulfill a variety of other roles including small team insertion, exploratory functions, communications functions, courier duties, and many other functions. [2]

However, the basic tactic for a scout vessel is to avoid, evade, and escape combatant exchanges. [3]

Supraclass Archetypal Roles

These vessels typically serve the following archetypal roles:

S-class Scout Vessel Supraclass Archetypes
Archetype Type Code Exemplar Remarks
Scout Vessel S (Namesake) Serpent class Scout Generic scout vessels serve across a variety of riles focusing on reconnaissance, survey, and communications roles.
  • S = Scout
Scout/Courier SC Sulieman class Scout/Courier Scout/Couriers focus on fulfilling intelligence and communications roles.
  • C = Courier
Fleet Scout SF Dewclaw class Fleet Scout Fleet Scouts tend to focus on endurance, sped, and range. They may travel many parsecs ahead of a fleet, convoy, or trade group confirming that the way is clear. Many serve frontier roles, fast roles, or far distance, endurance roles.
  • F = Fleet, Far, Fast, Frontier, etc.
Military Scout SG Hunter class Armored Scout Armed and armored scout meant for exclusively military duty, often acting in a light skirmisher / intruder / raider combatant role. Such vessels are too small to significantly threaten larger vessles, but they can harass effectively.
  • G = Gunned, Armored, Combat, Military, War, etc.
Surveillance Scout SI Gishiash class Stealth Scout Surveillance scouts often serve intelligence roles, picket roles, and observation roles, monitoring certain parts of space or certain groups and places of interest.
  • I = Intelligence, Spy, Stealth, Surveillance, etc.
Asteroid Scout SP Pallad class Asteroid Scout It's far more common for larger vessels to make use of planetoid hulls than smaller ones. Asteroid scouts are an application where the planetoid hull can be very effective, hiding in plain sight and covertly observing the spaceways.
  • P = Planetoid, Asteroid, Rock, etc.
Aerodynamic Scout SX Wind class Scout/Courier Aerodynamic scouts are technically spaceplanes. They are specialized to act as capable aircraft in addition to their roles as spacecraft or starcraft. They are optimized to take closer looks at atmospheric worlds than many other kinds of scout vessels.
  • X = Exosphere, Atmosphere, Planetary, Spaceplane, etc.
NOTES: There is semantic overlap between many of the classes and codes. Some codes organize by mission or capability, others by size and tonnage, and yet others by other characteristics.

History & Background (Dossier)

Several thousand years ago, interstellar pioneers had hoped to break the FTL barrier to communications technology. Tachyons, mesons, jumpspace were all explored hoping to create Charted Space's first ansible. It never happened... [4]

In an environment where communication only moves at the pace of travel, scout vessels remain incredibly important. They are typically light, fast, and practically disposable ships. They can monitor, reconnoiter, explore, survey, carry couriers, and otherwise maintain intelligence networks and observation. Vessels very flexibly serve across many mission roles from communications to combat operations, but ...the focus of most scouts is the collection and dissemination of intelligence data. [5]
