The Type XCF class Fleet Courier is a communications starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Comments: With communications limited to the speed of jump, the most difficult operational problem confronting the fleet commander is the transmission and receipt of timely intelligence reports and command directives. The fleet courier is intended to provide naval commanders with the capability of transmitting orders and information across subsector distances in relatively short periods of time. [1]
